Jane Eyre and Summer Survivial

I just finished reading Jane Eyre for the 1st time!

Why did I take so long to read this great book?

I love Jane Eyre's character.

I have watched older movie versions too.
So, I knew the story well.

Reading the story, of course, was much more detailed,
with great quotes!
There is some language in the book from
Charlotte Bronte's time period 
that can get a little long
in some parts of the book,
but it was still a
very pleasurable read.

I read Jane Eyre so I could enjoy this book:

**UPDATE: I finished reading this book!**:
Nothing can compare to Bronte's writing,
but I did enjoy this book.
It did help answer a lot of questions I had about him
from reading Jane Eyre.
If you love Jane Eyre, then I think this book is a must read.
(Just a head's up, there is some strong language in this book from
Bertha, Mr. Rochester's wife.)

I've started reading Rebecca another classic by Daphne Du Maurier

My mother's name is named Rebecca,
and she showed me this movie
when I was younger and I've always wanted
to read the book.
I'm excited to read this one too.

I also just finished reading
It is a true story.
Elizabeth was kidnapped at age 15,
taken from her home in the middle of the night,
and held captive for 9 months.

I read this book for the book club I'm a part of.
I was nervous to read it,
but felt like I should.

I'm so glad I read it.

It was good to understand more of the truth
of the circumstances surrounding her kidnapping.
Her character is also Exemplary.
When I got to the part towards the end of the book,
when her mother offered her words of wisdom
after she was back at home again,
I understood why it was good I read the book.
I love inspiring words from Mothers.

Happy Summer Reading!

Reading is my NEW survival method
for surviving this summer with my 5 kids underfoot.

I usually just buy fancy popsicles,
and try to hide from the kids while
I try to enjoy the fancy popsicle.

This summer I will escape by READING!

It's working great so far.
