Did anyone else feel like July dragged?
As in, dragged along like a rock tied around a snail shell while the little creature treks it’s way across a mile long field while avoiding circling birds.
Because I sure do.
As always, this is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!
PS. It’s really rather difficult to hold this many books. They’re heavy and slide around, you know!

In my sorry attempt at reading more classics this year, I wanted to read at least one book from each of the Bronte sisters. Not exactly sure why, it just seemed like a good place to start.
Last year I read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and at the beginning of this year I bought Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte. Since I’m a bit…hesitant…towards classics, I buy the Wordsworth editions rather than some of the prettier covers, because they’re literally £1.99 on Amazon. I love it! Plus, they’re hardly ugly covers, and they look so sleek when you have a few together. I’ll leave a link to them at the end – I really recommend the Wordsworth editions if you want cheap classics!
So finally, I actually read one.
And here we are today. Let’s see how I – a person who very rarely reads classics – fared with this one, shall we?
Let’s talk about Wuthering Heights!

Oh how this post shouldn’t exist.
Not when I got so many books last month.
I even told myself not to buy more at the end of the February Book Haul – and I quote:
“I don’t think there’ll be any need for me to buy books for a while now”
Shows how much I listen to myself.
Anyway, I got more books. And here they are.
Let’s jump right in!
