2014 Victorian Reading Challenge

I've not hosted any challenges at Becky's Book Reviews lately. But. I really want to join a Victorian Reading Challenge, and since I haven't found one for this year, I thought I'd try hosting it myself. It will be a simple challenge. Nothing fancy. No giveaways. No monthly link-ups. Of course, if you want to share in the comments what you've been reading, you can! But no obligations to come back and leave links.

Goal: Read two or more Victorian books. Preferably books published during the Victorian years (1837-1901). But books about those years are fine. Here is a list of authors you may find useful if you are looking for ideas.
  • Fiction or nonfiction.
  • Books, e-books, audio books all are fine.
  • Books and movies can be reviewed together or separately.
  • You can create a reading list if you want, but it's not a requirement
  • If you do make a list, consider adding a list of five books you'd recommend to others
  • If possible try to try a new-to-you author! I know it can be really tempting to stick with familiar favorites.
  • Children's books published during these years should not be forgotten!
  • Rereads are definitely allowed if you have favorites!

My choices are:
1. History of a Six Weeks' Tour by Mary Shelley
2. The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells
3. A Collection of Beatrix Potter Stories - The Original Classic Edition
