  1. Hi Karen! Thanks for hosting the challenge; I had a lot of fun reading my 19th century classic (Henry James' The Tragic Muse). I tried posting the link, but I'm not sure I did it right; "just in case" my review is at https://youmightaswellread.com/2019/01/24/the-tragic-muse-and-how-i-came-to-love-henry-james/

  2. My second read was Anthony Trollope's 'The Warden.' This was also the first divergence from my original planned list. It fits into quite a few of the categories but I decided to claim it as the 19th century novel. It was a fairly fast read, but a bit of a disappointment.

  3. I read Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte. It was a short and simple read, but quite wholesome and enjoyable. I was very happy about the ending (despite it being predictable).

  4. Just finished: Bleak House it was very good, but not quite my favorite Dickens

  5. Finished Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson, my first read for the challenge. I'm a bit behind this year. Really enjoyed this one.

  7. My first completed book for the challenge was Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens. I remember you liked it Karen and I liked it too, though I think I can see why it isn't as famous as his other works!
