Villette - A.S. Byatt, Charlotte Brontë, Ignes Sodre This book is so good and so often overlooked in favor of Jane Eyre. It's a masterpiece of atmosphere and characterization with acute psychological observations. A fascinating, and in some places completely surreal, book. I guess I don't reread it as often as Jane Eyre (I'm a sucker for Jane's moxie! and of course, moody, tortured Edward Rochester), but I think I actually like it better.
