Victorian Challenge


The Victorian Challenge is being hosted by Alex here.

I was thrilled as soon as I saw the words “Victorian” and “Challenge” together. I have read so many wonderful books from and about the period and there are still lots more out there.

So I am definitely in!

Here’s how it works:

  • The challenge runs between 1st January 2009 and 30th June 2009.
  • It is open to everyone who wishes to participate.
  • You can choose one of four reading levels.
  • You can be added to the blog if you want.
  • You can share your reviews or make updates in the blog.

Books allowed:

  • Books wrote during the Victorian Era
  • Books set during that period
  • Books about that period or biographies

Reading Levels:

  • A drink at Whitechapel: 3 books
  • A walk in Hyde Park: 4 books
  • A tour of the British Museum: 5 books
  • A visit to Buckingham Palace: 6 books

I’m opting for a tour of the British museum, and these are my books:

  • Little Dorritt, by Charles Dickens
  • Belinda, by Rhoda Broughton
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
  • Miss Cayley’s Adventures, by Grant Allen
  • Cranford, by Elizabeth Gaskell

I plan to turn the titles to links once I have read and reviewed and I’ll track progress in my sidebar.
