Stay tuned for the Period Drama Hero Tournament starting on May 1st. I can't wait!


  1. I'm glad Sidney Carton got in even if Charles Darnay didn't. I'm excited and can't wait either!

  2. YES! I like Sydney Carton, even though Tale of Two Cities wasn't the best book ever. In my humble opinion. But I did like Sydney.

    And I LOVE The Importance of Being Earnest! Glad Jack's in there too...let's see, he was acted by Colin Firth in the movie, wasn't he? Or am I mixing him up again? :P

    I need to read Nicholas Nickelby. Really need to. And "The Inheritance" by Alcott.

  3. Yay! Those are some good additions to the tournament. I still need to find out more about Sydney Carton before the voting starts. This tournament is so exciting! :)

  4. Thank you everyone!

    Charity U,
    I think Jack was acted by Colin Firth in the movie. I've never seen The Importance of Being Earnest, but when I looked up Jack Worthing's picture, there was Colin Firth! :-)

  5. I'm glad about Nicholas Nickleby. =)

    And Charity, I really enjoyed The Inheritance. :) The movie is good too, although very different from the book...veerrry different.

    I am looking forward to the first of May!
