first, i DID like this book. it was basically what i expected it to be and have dogeared so many pages so i can read- or reread many of her YA esentials. and while it is charming to find someone who knows these characters like i do, it does seem a little unfair to have everything be like a giant "in" joke, for which i'm only "in" half the time. (just because i have worn out Frances Hodgston Burnett books doesn't mean i've ever read VC Andrews. I haven't, OK! so kill me! i'm gonna try and remedy it soon.)
also, it seems to be an example of the problems with blog-to-paper books. lots of editing errors- did anyone besides me read it the whole way through? unexplained duplicates, and an abrupt ending- after all the forwards and introductions to the book and each chapter, i expected more. i did love the sorting by theme, but it is hard to find specific books that are written about.
but it did make me read dancing shoes AGAIN this morining.
