  • You own and/or have read biographies or fictional stories based on the lives of the Brontes.
  • You  are annoyed when Charlotte and Emily are mentioned, but Anne is not.

  • Visiting Haworth, the Bronte Parsonage, Haddon Hall, and/or the Moors is on your travel bucket list.
  • You mourn over dead leaves.
  • You follow the careers of the actors who have played Bronte characters, even if some of their post-Bronte choice of roles were questionable.

  • And finally, every time you finish one of their novels, you silently thank them for being bold enough to share their genius with the rest of the world.

  2. Incredibly accurate list. Especially the arguing that Emily was a better writer!


    • I don’t agree that Emily is a better writer. Her writing is the best of the best, but sometimes I don’t want to read something so dark or dramatic.


      • I find amongst romance fans especially she is often shortchanged, mainly because Wuthering Heights is such a polarizing story. As a result, I’ve had to stand up for the quality of her writing more than once. Dark and dramatic, yes, but nonetheless superb. Though I totally agree about sometimes not being in the mood for it.
