Happy Victober to one and all! Today I’m kicking off your week with a belated Victober to-be-read list.
What is Victober? I hear you cry. Fear not, dear readers, for I will explain. Victober is a readathon hosted by Lucie, Katie, and Kate, with the purpose of celebrating Victorian Literature in the month of October. There are some prompts, and even a group read, but so long as you read one Victorian book in October then you can count yourself a participant.
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë
A man becomes enamoured by the mysterious tenant of Wildfell Hall, but what secrets is she hiding?
The Warden by Anthony Trollope
The first book in the Chronicles of Barsetshire is set in a small cathedral town and follows Septimus Heap whose traditional values come under attack .
Wessex Poems by Thomas Hardy
Hardy describes it best: poems set in, around, or about Wessex.
Wagner the Werewolf by George W. M Reynolds
This is in fact my second attempt at reading this penny dreadful and is one of the earliest depictions of a werewolf in English Literature.
I hope that you intend to participate because Victober really is a lot of fun. If you are do let me know what you are planning on reading because I would love to know. Don’t forget you can also keep up with my Victober reading on my instagram. Happy reading!
