  1. I had forgotten about Count Olaf...very good. I've not read the other two--Vanity Fair is on my TBR list, but it's a book I start and have a hard time keeping on with. So, this year is to be the year!

  2. Wasn't Ms. Danvers an odd duck? There for a while (as I was reading) I thought she might have secretly been nice -- but no such luck!!

  4. I am TOTALLY with you on Becky Sharpe! I couldn't stand her the whole book, but there was just something about her...

  5. I haven't read any of those books, I'm sad to say. There's something fun about hating a wicked character.
