Standalone Sunday | 20/11/2016


Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme created by wonderful Megan @bookslayerreads.

There is one simple rule: each Sunday we pick one stand alone novel (not part of a series) that we love or recommend.




Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne. The Brontë siblings have always been close. After all, nothing can unite four siblings quite like life in an isolated parsonage on the moors. Their vivid imaginations lend them escape from their strict, spartan upbringing, actually transporting them into their created worlds: the glittering Verdopolis and the romantic and melancholy Gondal. But at what price? As Branwell begins to slip into madness and the sisters feel their real lives slipping away, they must weigh the cost of their powerful imaginations, even as their characters—the brooding Rogue and dashing Duke of Zamorna—refuse to let them go.


This novel was published in January, 2016. It is about the Bronte family – the famous Bronte sisters, but also about their brother, their father and mother. It is a perfect read for someone who does not know much about the Bronte and wants to find out more.

There is also a fantasy elements to this novel. The author put a spin on the way the Bronte gained their imaginations and ideas for their novels. 

If I say more, I’ll spoil it for you.
