Happy Birthday Charlotte Brontë

Happy Birthday to my favorite Brontë.

Charlotte’s books (particularly Jane Eyre and Villette) continue to be a source of inspiration and I cannot think of anything more pleasurable (other than reading Jane Austen) than sipping iced-coffee on a summer day while reading one of Charlotte’s books.  Villette is often overshadowed by Jane Eyre, and although lengthy, I believe it is well worth taking the time to read.
I believe in some blending of hope and sunshine sweetening the worst lots. I believe that this life is not all; neither the beginning nor the end. I believe while I tremble; I trust while I weep. ― Charlotte Brontë, Villette

    • Cozynookbks, If you do decide to read Villette, my advice is to go very slowly. I was really able to enjoy Bronte’s style in this book by reading at a snail’s pace. Just my personal advice. 🙂 Enjoy! My favorite heroine will always be Jane Eyre. Happy reading!
