April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

OK, I'm not going to review this as I can't add anything to what's already been said. I understand the historical significance behind the book and whatnot, but I couldn't help thinking the entire time that I was listening to Jane Eyre that every character around her was such a caricature of themselves and that their characters were so dramatically presented just to make Jane herself seem overtly normal that the story seemed to lose itself for me.
