Would you have been friends with Lily Bart?

06 May

House of Mirth Check-in

How did your reading go this week?
Did the spring weather lure you away from our New York socialites?

I have to say that I’m a little concerned about the choices Lily’s making.  I wonder if I would have been friends with her.  Would I have been drawn in by her endearing qualities, as so many of the characters are, or would I have seen her as a living version of the tabloid covers and run from all of the drama?  Hmmm…

Have you finished Book 1?  Are you in the midst of Book 2?
Please share your place in the comments.

    I think I would be envious of Lily’s beauty, and would not be friends with her but would wish I looked like her! I found her really, really hard to like.

    I finished the book, review here:

    I’m at Chapter 5 of Book 2 . . . I think. I still like Lily. More and more she’s reminding me of Eustacia – innocent, yet not very good at appearing to be so.

    Just finished Chapter 6 of Book 2…this one’s going slowly for me. It might be the weather. It might be my to-do list. It might be the tiring oscillations of Lily’s fate. Not sure which.
