Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

Jane Eyre - Michael Mason, Charlotte Brontë This is like the Twilight of Victorian Literature. Not even kidding. I could draw parallels. But I won't because it'd require looking through both of them again and I rather not. The primary one though? Bella Swan gets dumped by Edward, wanders in a depression. Jane does the same thing, except hers is self-inflicted. What an insult to women. It still baffles me that people can see how damaging Bella Swan is to feminism, but not Jane Eyre. What? Because it's an older work? Older =/= good. Classic =/= good. Yeah. Also I've never read a book where with ONE PAGE TO GO I still want to throw it down and never pick it up again. I'm still baffled I managed to get to the last page.
