My word, what a book! I can see why this one has never been as popular as Austen's novels. The characters here were not particularly likable or relatable, almost nothing happens, and I didn't particularly hold out any hope for the long-term happiness of anyone haha I am glad to have read this classic, but it is way too long for the amount of story it contains. Never would have made it through without snarky hashtags from @BarkingMadRead !! ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) Thank you so much for hosting this buddy read! (I think... on the other hand, that's 923 pages of my life I'll never get back 😂)

TheBookHippie Oh I do like that cover! 1w
dabbe When does this one start, and can I join in? I loved her THE TENANT AT WILDFELL HALL and am interested in joining this superlative group! 😊 1w
ravenlee @dabbe I really liked Tenant, too, so I‘m really looking forward to this one. @BarkingMadRead is leading the group, and we‘re starting on April 1st. See her post on this same title (I think it‘s the third one or so). 1w
BarkingMadRead @dabbe I‘ll add you to my list!! 1w
dabbe @ravenlee and @BarkingMadRead ... thank you so much! I'm looking forward to it. I would have joined sooner, but I already suffered through, I mean read, Middlemarch last year. 🤣 1w
BarkingMadRead @dabbe 🤣🤣🤣🤣 1w
ravenlee @dabbe I started Middlemarch for a class in the spring semester of 2000. I got about 600 pages in and ran out of time. It‘s been sitting on my shelf ever since, judging me. I finally got through it courtesy of the #PemberLittens and @BarkingMadRead and her awesome hashtags! 1w
bookishbitch I really liked this one! 1w
dabbe @ravenlee I feel the pain! And I loved reading the hashtags provided by @BarkingMadRead. I laughed out loud every time, and she hit the pulse on the essence of the entire novel! 🤣 1w

Bookwormjillk Good for Dodo though finally acting like she‘s the main character in her own story 1mo
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk yes! The only good thing to come out of this relationship! 1mo
dabbe Your hashtags are priceless.❣️ 1mo
Bklover #babyhasanamebuttheystillcallhimbaby I‘m so proud of Dodo. She actually is standing up for herself (no I won‘t stay a minute longer and no I don‘t need a companion). 1mo
CoffeeNBooks Oh Celia, and her ideas for Dodo. 🤣🙄 And I know there were very strict rules about what they could and couldn't say to each other during this time, but it's driving me crazy that Dodo and Will don't know what the other is thinking. 1mo
BarkingMadRead @CoffeeNBooks I keep yelling #communicate 🙄🙄 1mo

peanutnine Farebrother and Mary are the two best characters in this book and they deserve each other #poorfarebrother 1mo
Bookwormjillk Good chapter! I think maybe you should travel more often because it brought us some progress with this book finally. 1mo
Clare-Dragonfly I do always feel sorry for Farebrother. He deserves good things! 1mo
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk I‘m glad I could help 🤣 1mo
Bklover #hashtagsaysitall. Poor Mary just wants Fred to do Something! 1mo
CoffeeNBooks I feel badly for all three of them- Farebrother deserves someone with whom he can share companionship, Fred needs to get his act together so he can be the man Mary wants him to be, and Mary just wants Fred to do a minimal amount in order to be the right man for her. 1mo
BarkingMadRead I almost want farebrother to just say screw it, and propose. Mary might even say yes! 1mo

Chapter 44: how lydgate convinces Dodo to donate money to his hospital #also #casuabonisstillanass #thatisall #shortchapter #pemberlittens

Bookwormjillk A paranoid ass 1mo
Bklover I‘m actually a bit surprised that Casaubon isn‘t suspicious of Lydgate too. Oh, and I wish Dodo and Casaubon would just discuss his health issues instead of all this paranoia. 1mo
CoffeeNBooks @Bklover Yes! This drama between them is getting frustrating. I blame Casaubon- he's being immature. I don't think Dorothea really knows what to do. 1mo
Bklover @CoffeeNBooks I think you‘re right. Poor Dodo. 1mo

Bookwormjillk Perfect picture. How dare they look at Mary like she's going to steal the silver. 2mo
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk right?!? Horrible humans! 2mo
TheAromaofBooks Reading this chapter had me thinking that I understood why Featherstone didn't want these losers around! 😂 2mo
Bklover What horrible awful people!! That photo is perfect! 😂😂😂 2mo
CoffeeNBooks That picture and those hashtags! 😂 Featherstone's relatives are horrible! 😳 2mo
Aimeesue Hahahaha! That's exactly it! (edited) 2mo
AllDebooks Couldn't have picked a better photo. His relatives are utterly vile 😂 2mo
