A Top Ten Meme from The Broke and The Bookish
This week's topic is "Mean Girls" but since I don't much read YA I don't generally run into girls who are mean but more women who are despicable. Ten was a bit of a reach, so I came up with four.
1. Mrs Danvers the creepy housekeeper from Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
2. Mrs Schmitz from The Reader by Bernhard Schlink. I know she tried to redeem herself in the end, but there are some crimes that are just too heinous . . .
3. Mildred the waffling anemic girlfriend from Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham.
4. Mrs. Reed the mean old aunt from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
