#wonderingthroughwutheringheights #chapter24 #pemberlitten Oh Cathy, you stupid stupid girl. Ellen finds out she is visiting WH in the evenings. She tells Ellen of the miserable grouchy Linton and how mean he is to her. How she continues to make fun of Hareton because he is learning to read. Yet Linton‘s horrible attitude and abuse are not his fault and she must continue to see him. Ellen runs right to E and the visits are to stop! Oh Cathy!

#wanderingthroughwutheringheights #chapter23 #pemberlittens Ugg Linton!!! Cathy goes to visit Linton. He is very sick. He and Cathy have fight about their parents and the past. Cathy pushes his chair and he has a coughing fit. This leads to a full-on tantrum. Ending with Cathy staying she will visit him daily. Even though he is just terrible. Ellen wants to prevent it but get sick from cold wet feet for 3 weeks! I wonder what happens 🤷‍♀️

MicrobeMom Linton or visit WH. She schemes to write home letters and they fall in love. Nelly find out about the letter make her burn the all. Like that will keep them apart. Everything is going according to Heathcliff‘s plan. No doubt the will soon be married. 2d

1 day late #chapter20 #pemberlittens #wanderingthroughwutheringheights So, Nelly brings whiny sad Linton to WH. Here we find that H only wants him because he is E‘s heir. He wants to make sure he stays alive enough so he inherits the grange. He is disgusted by Linton‘s weak demeanor and resemblance to his mother, but he will care for him properly. That is if her doesn‘t die of anxiety first.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Heathcliff is despicable in this Chapter. 3d

#wanderingthroughwutheringheights #pemberlittens #chapter15 E and the servants go to church. Nelly gives H‘s letter to C and he visits with her. H and C are extremely self-centered. They blame each other for C poor health. They hate, love, hate, love until E returns. C faints and H leaves only after Nelly says she will tell him of C‘s condition the next day. C and H are just awful humans. I really don‘t get how the stand each other.

#wanderingthroughwutheringheights #pemberlittens #chapter9 Wow long and dark chapter. Hindley returns wants to kill everyone. Almost kills Hareton by H saves him. H over hears C telling Ellie she wants to marry Edgar. H sulks off. C wants to marry E because she thinks it will save H from Hindley. C waits for his return and sit up all night after being in the rain. She of course gets sick. H never returns. She is sent to the Linton‘s👇👇👇

MicrobeMom To recover. Of course she does but gives her illness to Mr. & Mrs. Linton. Boom they die. 3 years pass. C marries E, and Ellie leaves Trushcross Grange with C. Very important chapter. It is clear that C‘s true love his H but it is a very u healthy love. She cannot exist without him. 2w

Hindley is sent to college because he is just awful and life at the Grange house would be good if not for Joseph (all fire and brimestone) and Cathy (not acting like the perfect lady she should be). Cathy is a true feminist living by her own rules. No one can handle a girl thinking for herself and being 👇👇

Mr. Lockwood is stuck because of the snow & is put up in a room no one is to enter. There he finds Catherine‘s name etched in the furniture and reads her journal. He then has horrifying nightmares of a a never ending sermon and Cathy trying to attack him. This wakes up Heathcliff who cries for Cathy‘s return. After Heathcliff berates the woman, Lockwood leaves. Never to return?

So I totally stole this is image from google but I think it accurately represent Chapter 2. Lockwood visits Mr. Heathcliff (uninvited), gets trapped in the snow, meets the intimidating Mrs. Heathcliff (daughter-in-law), no one wants him there, and they are miserable and rude. He finally figure this out. Insists that someone help him home and ends up with a bloody face! 🤦‍♀️

Today we meet Mr. Lockwood our narrator and the tenant of Mr. Heathcliff. Heathcliff is brooding, rude, and untidy but intelligent. Joseph the butler is very old. Mr. Lockwood enters Wuthering Heights which sounds scary, old, and gothic. He is frightened by Heathcliff‘s dogs, and then they drink some wine. Somehow he wants to visit again tomorrow.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Still not sure why he wants to go back. 😆 3w

I selected this as my final read for #pemberlittens. I thought Jane Austen, Persuasion, dystopian, totally for me. But I found this book so blah!! Dystopian books for me are about world and character building. Both were missing. The letters between the two mcs were too childish and lackluster. I did not feel their connection. Nor did I understand where I should stand on technology. Such a disappointment.

This is my second time around, and I did not enjoy it has much the first time around. I think this is because I am 20 years older and see things from a different perspective. There was not one character a really enjoyed including the beloved Fanny. She was weak, demure, and too selfless except in one situation. I found this counter to her personality. Edmund is a dummy and the rest were just jerks. However, I did enjoy it and will read again
