Jane Eyre Giveaway

If you've been reading this blog lately, you'll know about my love for Jane Eyre. Jane is one tough chick who goes through a lot, but refuses to compromise when it comes to her beliefs and values, even if it costs her true love, and that's something that I can admire. I'm excited to see the latest movie adaptation, which is showing in select cities right now, and to celebrate, I'm hosting a contest!

Here's what's up for grabs!

This sounds like a lot of fun!!

Okay, let me see.

I think my favorite scene of the book is when Rochester and Jane kiss for the first time.

It's one of those scenes I remember reading so, so vividly. I was reading the book standing between the shelves of a small library and I remember how my breath caught and my heart started to pound because I was so excited.

I think it was the first time something I read touched me in such a way that I had an honest to God physical reaction to it.

My favourite part is when Jane gives a piece of her mind to her "benefactress" aunt toward the beginning of the book. I remember laughing and feeling happy for Jane.

I love the first kiss. I adore this story and it is one of few books that I tend to re-read every few years.

Great giveaway!

I adore Jane Eyre ^_^
My favourite scene in the book is when they get back together and she finds out that she heard him crying out for her. So romantic.

I haven't read it yet. Not sure why. I've heard good things about it. I can't wait for the movie to come out. I need to get reading!

It shames me to say I haven't read or watched Jane Eyre. That doesn't disqualify me does it?!

My absolute favorite thing about Jane Eyre is this quote:

"You are my sympathy - my better self - my good angel; I am bound to you by a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely; a fervant, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my center and spring of life, wraps my existence about you - and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one."

I swoon every time.

The proposal scene where she thinks he's leading her on and gives him a piece of her mind. Oh, i love it.

There is so much that is good about this story, but I am a romantic so I like the part when Jane returns to Rochester after she left him following the wedding that wasn't.

Oooooh! Great giveaway. I'd really like to win. :)

My favorite scene is by the willow tree and Jane thinks that Mr. Rochester is about the marry Blanche. Classic. I will never forget that part!

My favorite thing about Jane Eyre is how the entire story encompasses a struggle that is very real for women. Including myself.
