Den of Geek! wonders whether it's 'Too Late to Save Eloise Bridgerton From Her Book Fate' and claims that,
It’s too late for Jane Eyre, who by rights should have told Mr Rochester in that burned-out ruin to get a guide dog because she was off to start a school for orphans where they don’t die of TB. It’s too late for Emma Woodhouse, who should have told Mr Knightley to get off her back, she’s only 21, and he’s not her bloody dad so stop taking everything so seriously. (Louisa Mellor)

Irish News and others report that the guitar that accompanied Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights is to be sold at auction following guitarist Ian Bairnson's death last year.
The guitar on which the solo at the end of Kate Bush’s classic debut hit Wuthering Heights was played is expected to sell for up to £10,000 at auction.
Guitarist Ian Bairnson, who played the piece with his arm in a plaster cast after breaking it, died last year aged 70, and his collection of instruments is being auctioned by his family.
The guitar, a 1974 Les Paul Custom, will be sold at Gardiner Houlgate auctioneers in Wiltshire and is expected to attract bids of up to £10,000. (Rod Minchin)
