Victorian Challenge 2012, gauntlet is thrown

Laura over at Laura’s Reviews, who hosted the fab All About the Brontës Challenge in 2010, has come up with another great challenge: all things Victorian! Two to six (or more) items, and a whole year in which to do so, brilliant.

I’ve been meaning to read some more Victoriana other than the Brontës, so this is a great opportunity. I did go ever so slightly (*cough*) overboard with the Brontës, so I’m not going to be quite as crazy with this. I’m thinking one a month. That should work, surely? Exactly what I’ll read and when, I’ve not decided yet, but I’ll plonk it on this post when I have. 🙂

  1. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  2. Stuff by Elizabeth Gaskell
  3. Stuff by Charles Dickens
  4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  5. Treasure Island and/or Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
  6. Possibly something by Jules Verne and/or H.G. Wells
  7. Some of those novels related to Jane Eyre that I’ve picked up as eBooks

And here’s what I’ve actually done so far and posted:

  1. Dracula by Bram Stoker (1897) 
  2. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (1865)
  3. Coming soon!
