  2. I've just finished Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell. A great read about a Victorian blended family :)

  3. I read Agnes Grey for this one. I didn't write a review so much as a passionate defence of Rosalie Murray. :')

  4. I read The Bell Jar, by Sylvia Plath. Watching Esther's transition from thinking about how to succeed in life, to how to cope with thoughts of ending her life, was a tough read.

  5. Just finished The Song of the Lark. I was not as big a fan as I thought I'd be.

  11. I just finished reading O Pioneers! by Willa Cather. I thoroughly enjoyed Cather's description of the isolated life of pioneers on the western prairies, despite one distasteful segment of it.

  12. I hope listening to books counts. Since suffering a detached retina a month ago I have had to listen to books rather than read print editions. My husband read Frankenstein to me as I recovered from surgery. Reading aloud slows down the experience and we both found that this deepened our experience of this wonderful novel.

  13. I read Castle Rackrent. An interesting book from a historical point of view, but not very much fun to actually read.

  14. I read Uncle Tom's Cabin. It was hard to finish because of the content, but I appreciate the value of the story historically and don't regret the investment.

  15. Unpopular opinion: I didn't like Little Women. I'm still glad that I read it as part of this challenge, though.
