I accidentally skipped last weeks Friday 56. It was one of *those* weeks. But I’m back this week and ready to get back to my reading and blogging on this wintery Spring day. Seriously, we had snow falling on the flower beds a couple of days ago! Today I plan to curl up with a hot cuppa tea under a blanket with a book.

This month my Friday 56’s  will have a theme. Have you guessed what it is? Let me know what you think in the comments below. And be sure to leave a link to your Friday 56 in the comments. Happy reading!

This is my last Friday 56 that will focus on the Bronte sisters and their stories. And to complete it, at least in my own mind, I include a response to Charlotte’s story by Jean Rhys. This is the story of the mad woman who lives in the attic in Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. She is the secret Rochester tries to hide unsuccessfully. There is so much that Bertha represents that she deserves her own story, I think. And Jean Rhys gave her a voice and a story that changes the way most readers think and read Jane Eyre.

Have you read Wide Sargasso Sea? What do you think about it? Does it change the way you think about Jane Eyre? Let me know in the comments below. And be sure to link to your Friday 56 so I can visit your blog. Happy reading!

Here is my contribution: Villettte by Charlotte Brontë

This at around 56% on my Kindle. I quite like the description. But I really have no clue what is going on. I’ve not yet read Villette. It’s been on my Kindle for about 5 years!. And I decided to go with this book for my Friday 56 because today is Charlotte Brontë’s 201st birthday. She was born on this day in 1816.

Are you a fan of Charlotte Brontë? What do you think of this excerpt? If you haven’t read this book, would you? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to leave a link to your Friday 56 so I can visit your blog. Happy Friday, y’all!

It’s been a while since I read Jane Eyre, and I had forgotten how wry and funny she could be. Oh, Mr. Brocklehurst, what an ass you are.

Are you a fan of Jane Eyre? If so, what do you think of Mr. Brocklehurst? If you haven’t read this book, would you based on this excerpt? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to leave a link to your Friday 56 so I can visit your blog. Happy Friday, y’all!
