The Madwoman Upstairs: A Book Review

The Madwoman Upstairs: A Book Review

I was approached by Touchstone to review The Madwoman Upstairs, and as soon as I heard the synopsis, I knew that I wanted to be involved. And I’m glad that I did! As a fan of classic literature, I love Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights by Charlotte and Emily Brontë. They’re both so dark and creepy but romantic and beautifully written.

Maybe this isn’t how it is for all people, but this is usually what my finals weeks look like. So let me take you back to finals week Fall 2014. There I was, attempting to study, pulling out my books, notes, and highlighters, ready for some serious cramming…when I discovered this wonderful Youtube series called The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Seriously, it was wonderful. And if you know me, you’d know that I […]
