I've made lots of reading commitments this year (though not nearly as many as some bloggers manage!). One of the most important to me was my pledge to myself to read more books I already own, which in turn led to my more recent pledge of reading only books I already own over the course of the summer.
But I also signed up for A Victorian Celebration, a Victorian-themed challenge hosted by Allie at A Literary Odyssey. I signed up to read a mere three Victorian books during the months of June and July, and I'm planning on sticking with that goal. Here's what's on my list of books to be considered (all of which, yes, I already own):
A Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Bleak House by Charles Dickens
Tess of D'Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy
Sketches by Boz by Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens (from the Penguin Lives series) by Jane Smiley
Dickens: A Bicentenary by The Charles Dickens Museum
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Where should I start? What am I missing (with the caveat that of course there are dozens of other Victorian authors out there, but I am trying to stick with books I already own!)? What are your favorite Victorian titles?
