The Victorian Challenge

The BookDepository


The Victorian Challenge is being hosted by Alex, and it’s aim is to encourage people to read more books written during, or based in the Victorian Era.

I love all things Victorian, so although I’m almost a month late – I’ll sign up!

I’m going to take the Walk in Hyde Park level – 4 books (although I may read one or two more I don’t want to over commit myself!)

I finished reading Wuthering Heights last week, so if it’s OK with everyone I’m going to include this as the first of my books.

My other books are probably going to be:

1. Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte completed 26th Jan. 2009

2. The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher – Kate Summerscale completed 1st February 2009

3. The Moonstone – Wilkie Collins completed 21st February 2009

4. Three Men in a Boat – Jerome K. Jerome completed 1st March 2009

5. The Seance– John Harwood completed 18th March 2009

    I look forward to your thoughts on The Moonstone! It has been a year or two ago since I read it, but I remember it well!

    I was considering this challenge too, but so far I’m not joining. I’ve decided that I have to finish at least one of my current challenges before I can think about starting a new one!
