Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) MIA:

* Theodor Fontane: Effi Briest
* Guy de Maupassant: Une Vie (A Woman's Life)
* Thomas Hardy: Tess
* Anthony Trollope: He Knew He Was Right
* Emily Bronte: Wuthering Heights
* Anne Bronte: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
* Daphne Du Maurier: Rebecca
* John Fowles: The French Lieutenant's Woman
* Marilyn French: The Women's Room
* Margaret Atwood: The Blind Assassin
* Joyce Carol Oates: "Man Crazy" and "Beasts"
* Susan Sontag: The Volcano Lover
* At least arguably: William Shakespeare: Othello (Desdemona)

Etc. ...


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Oh wait, I see that the GR list now contains several entries that are not on the original list referenced/linked in the introduction. So are we allowed to add titles of our own, or is this supposed to be a "closed" list (where you're supposed to vote only for books contained on the original list on which the GR list is based)?

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Wait, is this list open or closed? Because if it's open I have one to add.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) That's why I asked the question as well. If it is open, I have several to add ... (see post 1)!

Kim Don't have an image for it, but there's a magnet on my fridge that says:

BORING WOMEN HAVE IMMACULATE HOMES

Always makes me feel better about myself...

I'm pretty sure that I've been heard to say much the same thing.
