The Victorian Challenge has been graciously hosted by Alex on a dedicated blog here. Do take a look – there are some wonderful reviews of an inredible array of books.
I was thrilled as soon as I first saw the words “Victorian” and “Challenge” together, and decided to set about reading a few of the big Victorian novels that I hadn’t got around to.
In the end I settled for a walk in Hyde Park (4 books) rather than the tour of the British Museum (5 books) I had planned.
I loved the books I read and I’m happy that I took my time and enjoyed them rather than rushing to hit a target.
Here they are, linked to reviews:
Little Dorrit, by Charles Dickens
The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
Miss Cayley’s Adventures, by Grant Allen
Cranford, by Elizabeth Gaskell
I’m impressed that you finished. I’ve yet to finish a challenge.
I loved this challenge too. There just seem to be so many great books set in this period of history I could complete this challenge several times a year!
