So ladies, Middlemarch Madness is drawing to a close. One week from today we will be tabulating the votes to determine the Supreme Lady of Badassness, she who will wear the coveted Miss Persephone tiara until we do this again next year (if we think our hearts can take it).
For all the heartbreak and tough decisions we have gone through, there is one aspect of the contest that is unarguably positive. I have read some fantastic books. So far I have read The Westing Game and Uglies, and The Handmaid’s Tale will be arriving at my door any day now, courtesy of Amazon. I’ve also reread some excellent books whose heroines I was a little fuzzy on, like The Hero and the Crown.
So how about you? Have you read any new books to find out what all the fuss is about?
