5. North Yorkshire Moors
If you read Wuthering Heights in high school and always wondered what “wild moors” looked like, this is it. The North York Moors span over 550 miles — including the towns of Whitby, Kirkbymoorside, and Scarborough — and are particularly beautiful in spring when the heather blooms. In addition to the flora, the region’s ancient towns, castles, abbeys, and landscape make it one of the most scenic in the UK. (Eben Diskin)

Q Who/what are your favourite authors/books?

The Daily Campus reviews Netflix's Enola Holmes.
The main problem with the film is the plot and story structure. It’s clear that the writer and director were trying to do many, many things with this film. For one, they try to blend together Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous mystery storytelling with Jane Austen and the Brontë Sister’s 19th century drama. In doing so, they create an imbalance in tone and story. The movie just doesn’t know what it wants to be. At times it’s a mystery, at times it’s a romantic teen drama and at others it’s a thriller. To state it simply, the film tries to do too much. (Zachary Wisnefsky)

Antoinette Cosway/Bertha Rochester, Wide Sargasso Sea. One of the obstacles to true love in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre is that the ambiguous "hero", Mr Rochester, turns out to be married already, to a mysterious "madwoman in the attic". Jean Rhys' 1966 novel gives new life to this shadowy figure, allowing her to tell her own story from her childhood on a Jamaican sugar plantation to her arrival in England and gradual descent into madness.
