What’s The Buzz? The Most Underrated Books (…in my opinion!)

Recently, I was on Goodreads, about to add a fellow reader with similar bookish interests to mine as a friend when I was bombarded by his Friend Request Question. I think these questions are a lot of fun (I set one for my profile too) because it gives you a chance to immediately get toContinue reading “What’s The Buzz?

Acton – A Study of the Bells, Part III

In today’s final blog post in the string of entries about the poetry of the Brontë sisters, I’ll investigate the works of youngest sibling Acton Bell (aka Anne Brontë). My reading of the first text ever published by the Brontë sisters, Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell, has significantly informed my understanding of andContinue reading “Acton – A Study of the Bells, Part III”

Ellis – A Study of the Bells, Part II

If you’ve been keeping up here on the blog, you’ll know that I recently delved into one of the only works by the Brontë sisters I had yet to read, Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell, their first formally published work.

Currer – A Study of the Bells, Part I

There are very few literary works by Charlotte Brontë that I haven’t read. I’ve read all of her famous novels (Fun Fact: Other than Jane Eyre, the ultimate Victorian romance, Shirley is my favourite, which is a rather unpopular opinion among Victorianists!), and I’ve also read several biographies of her life. Having said that, itContinue reading “Currer – A Study of the Bells, Part I”

Lady Janille and the Green Knight

Hello again Everyone! I’m back! I’ve returned home (only a 50 minute train ride, but never mind that) from my Toronto staycation and…I’m just as depressed and upset as I expected to be. I had the best 4 days in the city with my boyfriend and it was so amazing to be able to exploreContinue reading “Lady Janille and the Green Knight”

Good Morning Dear Readers! Just a quick post to let you all know what fun I got up to last night!  I went to the dinner I had planned with my friend, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post – we had a great time chatting about life, her various literary and academic successes, my blogContinue reading “Leisure Time with the Girl with a Green Heart”

Thoughts on a Master’s Contemplations

I’ve recently (finally) started a full-time position at a company I am very proud and excited to work for. Fortunately for me, the lover of all things French, my position involves quite a bit of contact with the French language…so I determined that it was time for my first ever French literary review. I hadContinue reading “Thoughts on a Master’s Contemplations”
