Victorian Literature Challenge

Thanks to Becky’s Weekly Geeks post I discovered the Victorian Literature Challenge at Words, Words, Words and promptly succumbed to temptation. The challenge covers everything written in the Victorian era (1837 - 1901), and runs from 1 Jan to 31 Dec 2011.

I’ve chosen the Great Expectations option of 5-9 books; I think I’ll aim for an even half-dozen. Three from my TBR box:

Nicholas Nickleby - Charles Dickens
A Pair of Blue Eyes - Thomas Hardy (overlap with What’s in a Name? 4)
Can You Forgive Her? - Anthony Trollope
And three to be rounded up later.

I’m very much looking forward to finishing my second Dickens novel!


  1. Whoo hoo! I'm reading A Pair of Blue Eyes too :) Looking forward to seeing what else you come up with :)

  2. Me too :-) Hunting up suitable books is half the fun.
