Books & Chocolate

I love to read just about anything, as long as it's fiction. I read for me - that means I read what I want, when I want. My reviews tend to mostly be based on how I'm able to personally connect with the story/characters. They are not intended to influence someone to read, or not read, a particular book. I always encourage people to take a chance and make up your own mind.


Oh, and I love chocolate.

Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights - Emily Brontë, John S. Whitley

I read Wuthering Heights for the first time back in high school. The book captivated me then, and continued to do so throughout the following years. I think I've watched every move adaption there is, and I had wanted to go back and read it again sometime.


I'm glad that I did. I loved it just as much as an adult as I did back in high school. It's not a happy tail, and I think that's one of the things I like about it. Sometimes I feel like most books today that feature an 'epic' love between two people from a young age ends all nice and perfect. I like the way Wuthering Heights shows that there could be a darker side to loving someone so deeply. 


It's not an easy read, and the narration style wasn't my favorite, but I can look past these things.


Definitely one of the books that has left one of the most profound influences in my life (at least in my world of books).
