Move Over Jane Austen!

Over the past few years, there has been a renewed interest in Jane Austen and her books. We've seen new works of fiction about Austen, such as Syrie James's The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen [F JAM] and Laurie Rigler's Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict [F RIG].

The Guardian now reports,
The Brontës are back in fashion--with a bit of help from Bella Swan. New films of Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre will shoot next spring, and a script about the teenage fantasies of the four Brontë siblings is in the works.

The film-makers are piggybacking off the success of the Twilight saga, which has sparked a renewed enthusiasm among financiers for gothic romance; the Brontes in particular. Wuthering Heights is one of Twilight heroine Bella Swan's favourite books, frequently referenced in the third episode Eclipse, whose storyline is inspired by Emily Bronte's only novel.
So, before the rush gets too hectic, borrow our Bronte sisters' novels. They are found in our fiction section, as is Syrie James's newest novel, The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte. We also have Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights in audio [AB/CD BRO]
