2012 Victorian Challenge

The Victorian Challenge is being hosted by Laura's Reviews. I am interested in reading more Victorian literature but what makes this challenge even more fun is that we can also read books published in other countries during that time period (Mark Twain, Louisa May Alcott, etc.), historical fiction set during the Victorian age (like some of my favorite mystery series) and even watch movies. 

The goal is to read or watch 2-6 Victorian related items. I am going to aim for 6 since we can watch movies!

I might read:

The Agency: The Traitor in the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (reread)
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (reread)

I plan to watch:

North and South
Little Women
Lark Rise to Candleford

If you'd like to sign up, head over to Laura's Reviews!


  1. I really need to read Wives and Daughters; I've seen the miniseries and I own a copy but I haven't read it yet. I hope you enjoy it when you read it.

    I must highly recommend North and South-Richard Armitage *swoon* is really all that needs to be said!

  2. I am really looking forward to the newest book in The Agency series. Have you read Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey? It's the perfect blend of Victorian era HFIC, mystery, and romance. An ideal fit for your challenge.

  3. Ohhh! I am loving this challenge, because you know how much I love this time period. I like how you can watch shows too. Maybe I will sign up so it will force me to continue with The Agency series, because I know you really like it and I LOVED the first book. Happy New Year!
