Love the Brontës? Looking for modern twists on their lives and works? Or perhaps biographies? This section of the site dedicated to Brontë inspired literature might please you. Here I’ll post reviews of texts I’ve come across over the years that were inspired by our favourite literary family. Not all of these reviews are spoiler free as I’m a double Literature graduate so I can’t resist a bit of analysis, but all spoilers are clearly marked so no nasty surprises. If you find anything you think is an unflagged spoiler, then please let me know either in the comments section or through firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find the index below. Reader, enjoy.
