I must admit I am not a fan of reading challenges or read-alongs. I like to read whenever I want and whatever I want. But, I found this event and it just felt perfect! There is no reading-list and no impositions, just two months devoted to reading one of my favourite periods and works: Victorian literature.
- Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
- A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings by Charles Dickens
- Bleak House by Charles Dickens
- Hard Times by Charles Dickens
- Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
- A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
- The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
- Middlemarch by George Eliot
- Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
- Tess of D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
This is just perfect timing! By June I hope to have sit all my exams and I’ll be able to celebrate with some reading of my choice, without deadlines and without spending 10 hours at school. How great is that?
I hope some of you join, too!
