Victorian Literature Challenge 2011

So I was looking for some fun challenges for next year, and I decided I wanted to get my teeth into more Victorian literature. Failing to find any challenges and refusing to be disappointed, I decided to come up with my own. Whoo hoo!

So here it is:

The Victorian Literature Challenge 2011.

Okay, so I don't have a button yet. I'm trying to figure it out so bare with me. I'm hopeless at these things but want to get it sorted asap. Anyone offer any tips? Anyone want to do it for me? *bats eyelashes*

Naturally, as it's my little baby and I'm keen on the Victorian lit, I've opted for the toughest level:

Desperate Remedies: 15+ books.

What is my delicious selection?

1. Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen
2. Jude the Obscure - Thomas Hardy
3. Two on a Tower - Thomas Hardy
4. A Pair of Blue Eyes - Thomas Hardy
5. Under the Greenwood Tree - Thomas Hardy
6. Great Expectations - Charles Dickens
7. The Hound of the Baskervilles - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
8. Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson
9. Middlemarch - George Eliot
10. The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne
11. She - H.R Haggard
12. Villette - Charlotte Bronte
13. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall - Anne Bronte
14. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain
15. Les Miserables - Victor Hugo

There's my 15, but no doubt I'll add to the collection along the way. I'm really excited about starting this! Yay!

Do join up, do let me nosey your lists and do recommend some more to me!
