I've wanted to read this ever since watching the miniseries in high school, so I may have been predisposed to like this book, but I loved it! This gave me the same sort of, anglophile warmth as I Capture the Castle, but with an added dose of Wharton tragedy. It's a shame Wharton died before the novel could be completed but even the sort of 2/3 she finished stand on their own.

SaraFair Sounds awesome! 3y

Not just one #richgirl, this novel features five, all being traded by their families for titles. #melodicmay @jenniferw88

Day 5 #DressesOnCovers #ReadJanuary This was an interesting read - most of it written by Wharton but unfinished at her death. This edition was finished by someone else, based on the screenplay of the BBC miniseries. The endings of both have been heavily criticized but oh, those dresses! The book is posed on one of my own "fancy" dresses.

Reviewsbylola I read this years ago but barely remember it. 😢 3y
Tanner @Reviewsbylola Don't feel bad - I have a lot of books on my shelves that I know I read but I wouldn't be able to tell you what they're about! 3y

One letter, four choices. Which should I read? The fourth is Mad Black Wheel.

BookishMarginalia I'm no help -- I say just go for whatever grabs you at the moment! 3y
quirkyreader I say go with the Edith Wharton. 3y
BookishTrish @quirkyreader That's definitely how I'm leaning 3y

"...because London's London, and London life the most exciting and interesting in the world, and once you've got the soot and the fog in your veins you simply can't live without them; and all the poor hangers-on and left-overs know it as well as we do."
