OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALast month I participated in an online read-along for Mansfield Park. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to join another one this month for Jane Eyre, which I have never read before. This novel is also on my Classics Club list, so I figured that it would be more fun to read it with other bloggers than by myself. I actually don’t know much at all about the story and I have never seen any film adaptations. I have heard mixed reviews about this novel, but hopefully I end up enjoying it. And hopefully I am able to keep up with the weekly readings (I have to read the first 11 chapters for next week’s post)!

If any of you are also interested in reading along, here’s the link to sign up and here’s the link for the first week’s introductory postings.

  1. Hi Maggie, lovely to have you along this Jane Eyre journey! I love Jane Austen (!); of her 6 novels, I have yet to read Emma and Mansfield Park but I hope to rectify this gross oversight soon :-)

    • Thanks! Me too! And yes, it was perfect timing that I found out about this when I did, because I just joined the Classics Club last month and I would really rather read Jane Eyre with others than by myself.

  2. Hallo Maggie!

    I am finally able to drop back around to all the lovely Septemb-Eyres!! I truly threw in the towel when each time I would compose a ‘note’ to leave, I was met with the inability to see it post! Sighs. Thankfully, that is behind me now, and I wanted to drop by and say, that I do hope that you fall in love with Ms. Eyre as much as I have! I realise, not every book is for every reader, but ooh! She has so much to rally behind and support, that I hope she’s one of those characters that leaves a lasting impression!

    Thank you for dropping by my blog earlier!! I have left you a reply, as I was working on two new posts to go live this evening! You could say that my precursor of joining tCC in January, is my contribution to *Classics Re-Told*!

    I am so curious about your life in France! Great title for a blog!

    • Thanks Jorie! I had actually been wanting to start a blog for the longest time but didn’t have any inspirational topics…and then I moved to France! It’s been fun sharing my experiences with all of my friends/family back in the States, but I’ve also loved “meeting” other bloggers along the way!

      And you have made me even more excited to read Jane Eyre now! I’m sure I will love it :)

      And I am also excited about reading your Classics Re-Told posts!

  3. Yay for Jane Eyre! It’s one of my favorites! It’s a classic, and it could be grouped together with Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, and the rest of that group…but it really stands apart from the others because it’s so GOTHIC and creepy (but romantic at the same time). I hope you like it! (P.S.-Don’t watch the films! I’ve never seen an adaptation that I even remotely liked.)
