I started the Book list below ten years ago this September. My very first blog explains about the list and why I started it. I've listed ten books on each post starting with #1...this post will deal with 151-160. As of today my list has 202, so I've got a few days to go before I list them all. If you've been here leave a comment to let me know what you think, and if you like what you see tell others about it.

Number 159, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte is one of my all time favorite books...Top Five of all time for sure. It was published in 1847 to mixed reviews under the pen name Ellis Bell. It is her only novel, but she was a poet as well. Bronte used her own home, Yorkshire moors, as the setting for the book.
|Top Withens is believed to be the inspiration for the setting of Wuthering Heights.|
Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights...
"Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living! You said I killed you—haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe—I know that ghosts have wandered on earth. Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!"
