The Irish Examiner reviews Rachel Joyce's A Snow Garden:
Fans of Joyce’s quirky tales — and there are many — as she is as skilled with language as she is with plot and characterisation — will be delighted with this story collection.
But the author has one more problem to solve.
What will she do with the curates whom she cut out of Charlotte Brontë’s Shirley, when she adapted it for the BBC?
Because they haunt her office still. (Sue Leonard)
Grough talks about The Spine Race:
The leaders are currently north of the flood-hit town of Hebden Bridge and are heading towards the Brontë moors. (Bob Smith)
The Advertiser lists travel experiences like this one:
10. Join the ultimate Brontë book club
Any fan of the Brontë sisters will enjoy the Brontë Country Trail two-day tour, which takes in stately homes, museums, galleries, poetry readings, the sisters’ favourite walks and, of course, those evocative moors. (Elisabeth Knowles)
Eastern Daily Press makes a case for the publication of the book Encounters with Harriet Martineau by Stuart Hobday:
“I wanted to portray the real human stories of her life and have devoted a chapter each to her encounters and relationships with other 19th-century luminaries including Darwin, Dickens, George Eliot, Charlotte Brontë, Florence Nightingale and others, many of whom she infused with defiant courage and determination for social change,” said Mr Hobday, 49, who lives in the north of the city and used to be the director of the Norwich Arts Centre. (...)
Mr Hobday’s book has now been selected by Unbound, a publisher and funding platform, for an online crowdfunding campaign where people are asked to support the publication of the book by pledging a donation online in return for various rewards.
In total Mr Hobday needs to raise about £3,500 by mid February to realise his ambition to have his book published.

The Tullahoma News on why literary classics are classics:
Finally, the classics are called classics for a reason. Whether you choose to read Austen, Shakespeare, Tolstoy or Brontë, these authors continue to stand the test of time and deserve a look. (Kali Bradford)
InfoNorte Digital (Spain) slips a Brontë reference in a local politics article:
Aunque los tiempos hayan cambiado una barbaridad, la comunicación y el diálogo parecen estar escondidos aun en las profundidades de las cuevas de Altamira o en la del Cisco de la montaña de Arucas. Como la mediocridad lo invade todo, "y el poder es mío y solo mío", el país parece avanzar porque un día se puso en marcha, y ahí sigue tras la inercia inicial. La prepotencia anterior convirtió el hemiciclo en un páramo como el de las hermanas Brontë. (Juan Ferrera Gil) (Translation)
Cultora (Italy) posts about Jane Eyre:
Jane Eyre” è un libro superbo, emozionante e nobile, e leggendolo si può capire quanto della vita e del carattere della scrittrice è presente nel testo. Quanto di Charlotte è riversato nel personaggio di Jane Eyre.
A proposito di questo, Trollope scrisse: “Ella visse con quei personaggi e sentì in ogni fibra del suo cuore i desideri e le sofferenze dell’uno e dell’altra.”
I disegni che Jane eseguiva ed i libri che essa leggeva, erano gli stessi pensati e amati dalla stessa Charlotte. (Claudia Bergamini) (Read more) (Translation)
