Gothic Reading Challenge - I've Joined It!

I like reading challenges, I really do. It gives my hectic reading style a direction. The problem is, it is difficult for me to follow through. For example, at the beginning of this year I've joined a reading challenge that suited me (it was British literature, my fav) but because of Maya's health problems, even though I'd read a huge amount of books, I stopped it the middle. I hope to be luckier with this one.

So, I joined, went to Wikipedia to read a bit about Gothic literature and get inspired. I didn't decide on what books I am going to read, but for sure I am going for the top. If you are interested in the challenge, please visit Susan's blog (well, her blog for the challenge, as she has her books' review (mainly) blog at Well Manered Frivolity.

And of course, wish me luck!

I joined the British reading challenge, and while I've read several British books over the months, I lost count, too. I much prefer short term challenges: easier to keep track.

Good luck with the gothic reading! (Gotta love a bit of Mary Shelley!)

Thanks, and yeah, the challenge lets us do re-reading so I have to dig my Frankestein. I love gothic novels and this is definitely going to be fun!
