  1. I read several short fairy stories by George MacDonald including Phantastes and At the Back of the North Wind.

  2. Wives & Daughters. I didn't know it was "unfinished". In spite of that I liked it very much. First time reading Gaskell.

  3. "Ramona" by Helen Hunt Jackson was an enthralling read. I found that I was woefully ignorant about the aftermath of the Mexican-American War, so not only was it absorbing to read, I added to my education too.

  4. I read Wuthering Heights and I liked it.

  5. I found 'Northanger Abbey' a beautiful and heart wrenching romance. I absolutely enjoyed it!

  7. Hi Karen - I accidently linked to my Back to the Classics page instead of my review of The Eustace Diamonds, which is here: https://janegs.blogspot.com/2021/03/the-eustace-diamonds-anthony-trollope.html

    Sorry for the hassle - not sure if this is fixable :)

  8. I am a high school English teacher and would like to use this challenge as a summer reading challenge for my high school students and staff. May I have your permission to use what you have put together here for my own school? I love it, and while it is too late for me to join, I am hoping I can "steal" what you have done here. Thank you for your consideration.

    1. What a great idea for summer reading, please help yourself! If you need more suggestions you can go back and search the blog postings, I change the categories every year, though the first four remain the same (and POC author is now a permanent category also). I took this challenge over 8 years ago and every year it's really fun to come up with new categories. There are also lots of online challenges by other bloggers and libraries. Some use bingo-type challenges which are also really fun. Good luck with the summer reading!

  9. I've just finished Oliver Twist - I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would, although it didn't half go on a bit in the middle!
