The Lancashire Telegraph talks about Wycoller Hall mainly about its 'ghostly' side:
It’s a site with connections to Jane Eyre and which is rumoured to be haunted. (...)
The hall is believed is thought to have been the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Brontë’s novel Jane Eyre. (John Anson)

 Cherwell shares a list of books to-be-read in 2022:

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Anne Brontë
Originally on my list because I felt guilty for always overlooking the third Brontë sister, I am quite happy to learn that Tenant of Wildfell Hall is considered the Brontës’ ‘most shocking novel.’ Good for Anne. (Georgia Brown)

We have a first in the blunders spectrum. As far as we can remember we have never come across someone mistaking Mary Shelley for Emily Brontë. It's understandable, so many girls writing during those years. On Kearney Hub:

[Carolyn] Scheidies set the story during the Regency era, roughly 1795 to 1837, in Great Britain, a time known for its elegance and achievements in the fine arts and architecture. During that period Jane Austin wrote “Pride and Prejudice,” the Napoleonic Wars ended and Emily Brontë wrote “Frankenstein.”

Novels that never became old in Woman's Era

Wuthering Heights. It is one of the ruling novels by Emily Brontë which catches the attraction of readers always. The novel tells the story of love, rivalry, and revenge. (Arpita Sarkar)

Well, it is the only ruling novel by Emily.  

Collider has a list of the best coming-of-age horror films:
Edith loves Thomas, and perhaps naively wants to see the goodom in him. Lucille, meanwhile, treats Edith with barely-concealed hostility in a role reminiscent of Mrs. Danvers of Rebecca. In fact, there are many structural similarities to both Rebecca and Jane Eyre when it comes to Crimson Peak. Guillermo del Toro uses these frameworks to tell a horrifying (though, ultimately triumphant) coming-of-age story that’s both familiar and unique. (Madilyn Ivey)
The Big Smoke traces the long history of fan-fiction:
“There is a difference between Wicked [an explicit retelling of The Wizard of Oz] or Wide Sargasso Sea [Jean Rhys’ parallel novel to Jane Eyre], for example, and what you find on An Archive of Our Own or FanFiction.Net,” [Kristina Busse] said. And the key to that difference is community. (Alice Bell)
Stuff reminisces about Anne Rice and Interview with the Vampire:
Maudlin, self loathing, an unwilling killer of men and monsters, Louis was everything a creature of the night should be: a walking gothic wet dream; Mr Rochester without the wife in the attic, Heathcliff without the mean streak, custom-made for teenage wannabe weirdos (aka me) to fall hopelessly in love with. (Kylie Klein-Nixon)
In this theatre review by Göteborgs-Posten (Sweden) there is a Jane Eyre reference: 
Titeln refererar till Charlotte Brontës roman ”Jane Eyre” där guvernanten Jane förälskar sig i sin arbetsgivare Mr. Rochester. På deras bröllopsdag visar det sig att han redan är gift, med en våldsam och galen kvinna som han håller inlåst på vinden på sitt gods  (Mikaela Blomqvist) (Translation)
O Povo (Brazil) talks about literary influencers: 
“Eu tenho grande experiência em clubes de leitura e tenho certeza de que é muito importante na formação de um leitor, porque, nos clubes, a gente tem a oportunidade de dialogar com pessoas que estão lendo as mesmas obras”, afirma Emili Fano, também criadora do grupo de leitura Gente Literária.
No início da pandemia, ela começou a se reunir em formato on-line com alguns de seus seguidores. O objetivo era simples: ler “O Morro dos Ventos Uivantes”, de Emily Brontë, que nunca havia conseguido terminar. No ano seguinte, todo mês havia um livro novo, baseado em sugestões dos participantes. (Clara Menezes) (Translation)
Esquire (Spain) lists books about love: 
Las hermanas Brönte (sic) no fueron mal de drama y romanticismo en sus vidas, para ser honestos. Publicada por primera vez en 1847, 'Cumbres borrascosas' rompió con todos los cánones púdicos y morales de la Inglaterra victoriana en la que se ambienta. Una historia de pasión, obsesión y venganza que te enganchará de principio a fin. (Laura Sutil) (Translation)

The trigger warning business appears again in The Herald. The Reader Planet reviews Wuthering Heights.
