Victorian October (#Victober) is a reading challenge which was created by Kate Howe in 2016 in which the participants read Victorian literature during October.  The 2017 reading challenge is being hosted by Kate Howe, Katie from Books and Things, Lucy from lucythereader, and Ange from Beyond the Pages.  I have selected the following books to meet the five reading challenges:

  1. Read a Victorian book by a Scottish, Welsh, or Irish author. The Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  2. Read a Victorian book recommended to you.  David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
  3. Read a Victorian novel or story with supernatural elements. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  4. Read a lesser known Victorian book (less than 12,000 ratings on GoodReads). Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope
  5. Read a Victorian book by a female author. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

Happy Reading!
