Katie from Cupcakes and Cashmere lists Jane Eyre among the five books that changed her life.
3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë: I wouldn't be a classics lover if I didn't include a Brontë sister in this list. Growing up and attending an all-girls school, all of my reading lists were filled with female-written, female-led novels, and I couldn't be more grateful. Jane Eyre was bold, spunky, and brilliant. It reminded me of why it was important to break societal norms and persist against hardship, all while sprinkling in an excellent horror plotline. I could never get sick of this novel. 
Onirik (France) reviews the paperback edition of aura El Makki's Les soeurs Brontë.
Encore aujourd’hui, les soeurs Brontë fascinent. Avec leur destin si peu ordinaire, si triste, et si exceptionnellement riche pour des petites filles de province. L’excellente biographie de Laura El Makki revient dans une édition poche, et c’est tant mieux.
Aussi passionnante à lire qu’un roman, elle donne envie de redécouvrir les oeuvres des soeurs, en particulier celles d’Anne et d’Emily, parfois dénigrées au détriment de la plus célèbre, Charlotte, l’auteur de Jane Eyre, la seule à avoir connu le succès de son vivant.
Laura El Makki est allée dans leur région, sur les traces de cette famille hors normes, et cela donne envie de suivre ses pas. A voir donc, ci-dessous, une série de clichés pris à la suite de cette lecture, lors d’un voyage à Haworth, bastion de la famille Brontë, près de Leeds, dans le Yorkshire. (Claire) (Translation)
Looper lists some 'Futurama references you missed', including this one:
In the 2011 Futurama episode "Overclockwise," young clone Cubert Farnsworth gives Bender the robot a powerful upgrade to his operating system, "overclocking" him to the point where he gains superpowers. Speed-reading is among his new abilities, and he devours every book on the big shelf in the Planet Express conference room in a matter of seconds. [...]
He also puts away Wuthering Gattaca, evidently a combination of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights and the 1997 Ethan Hawke sci-fi movie Gattaca. (Brian Boone)
The Star features a photo showing 'what appears to be a pair of ghostly figures [...] on a desolate moor above Sheffield' and for some reason tells about the Brontë connections nearby.
