2011 Victorian Literature Challenge

 January 1-December 31, 2011

The Victorian Literature Challenge is being hosted by Bethany at Words, Words, Words. The purpose of the reading challenge is to read literature written from 1837-1901.

There are four levels to this challenge:

Sense and Sensibility-read 1 to 4 books
Great Expectations-read 5 to 9 books
Hard Times-read 10 to 14 books
Desperate Remedies-read 15+ books

I am going to aim for the Sense and Sensibility level because I know that I won't likely read 5 or more Victorian novels.

I am definitely going to read one book for the challenge as I've already started it and love it so far:

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

Other Victorian novels that have been on my TBR list that I might read:

Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
He Knew He Was Right by Anthony Trollope
