“Stormy, Scalding, Heart-Wrung Tears” –Jane Eyre

At 7am on Sunday, December 7th, I finished Jane Eyre, after having become riveted to the emotions in the words written by Charlotte Brontë. (Upon reflection, maybe it wasn’t the best choice to try and read myself to sleep with this book at midnight, as I wound up with no sleep.)

Finally, I am getting around to writing my review of the first book to be checked off of my Before 25 Bucket List

Jane Eyre

My Teasers:
Did I dream still? The old woman’s voice had changed: her accent, her gesture, and all were familiar tome as my own face in a glass–as the speech of my own tongue…

Never Let Me Go

My teasers: But those last years feel different. They weren’t unhappy exactly – I’ve got plenty of memories I treasure from them – but they were more serious, and in some ways darker.
-Chapter 7, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

(I put the chapter instead of a page number as I am reading this book on my Kindle, and can’t really tell an exact page…)
