To Walk Invisible Reading Challenge:  Part 1



I didn't sign up for any new challenges this year. Challenges are awesome you say? I know they are, but at the time I really wasn't sure what direction my reading was going to take me in. I'm kind of a moody reader. Some days I feel like reading a romance while other days it's mystery. It wasn't until earlier this year, while I was watching To Walk Invisible on PBS, it finally occurred to mew what I wanted to do: I want to find out more about the Brontes, but more specifically Jane Eyre. I want to know what others thought about her as well. I want to read about how Charlotte Bronte influenced other authors. I want to read about how other authors envisioned and then wrote about what happened next in her life.

About a month ago I re-read this classic and fell back in love with it. (I still have the paperback copy I bought in high school.) After I finished reading I scoured my shelves and kindle for anything Jane Eyre related (I knew I owned several books) and came up with a pretty good stack of books to help me on my discovery of Jane Eyre. Some are retellings, some sequels, some essays. And from that my challenge began to take form.

Thus begins my 
To Walk Invisible Reading Challenge Part 1.



Books on Kindle:
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde
Jane Rochester by Kimberly Bennett
All Hallows at Eyre Hall by Luccia Gray
My Mr. Rochester by L.K. Rigel

This stack of books should keep me busy for awhile. I'll reveal the second part of my challenge when I get close to finishing this one. 

I've already read a few Jane Eyre inspired books over the years that you may want to check out. I know that there are many more out there, so I'm open to suggestions if you have them.

Jane by April Linder
A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont
Jane Eyre's Daughter by Elizabeth Newark

Join me, encourage me, watch me as I read my way through these books.
