Read - a Thon: My Challenge

Welcome to The Dusk Till Dawn Read-A-Thon challenge!

This Read - A - Thon is hosted by Book Crazy and Ya Addict. You can sign up to enter here.
This event is all about reading, and by entering some of the challenges you can also use your creativity and win great prizes. And of course, you can discover some great blogs out there.

I am so happy to introduce you to my challenge:

I have a love for books set in the Victorian era, so my challenge is:
Read a book where the story is set in the Victorian era, and afterwards I want you to write a blog review about it. I will not accept reviews for just a few sentences, the point is to present the book for me and other readers, and outline why ( or why not) we should read it.

Enter by leaving a link to your review in the comment section of this post.

You have until the end of the Read A Thon 29th of August to enter. The winner will be chosen 31th of August by Random.org. One lucky winner will get "By Midnight" by Mia James.

Happy reading everyone.

Goodness I will have to try to find one - I dont read much in that era! :) Great challenge though! :)

@Jen: Thank you :)

@Val: You have to read the book or books during this Read A Thon for it to count, that is the whole point of the challenge. But maybe you can find one you haven't read yet?

@Book Crazy Jenn: Thank you for letting me participate :) And the weather is on my side as well so far during this readathon. It is raining, raining and raining, and the weather forecast says that it will be more rain this evening. Perfect for snuggling up in my reading chair and get some reading done.

Hrmm.. I don't read much from that era either. It just so happens I am reading Dracula Love. Which takes place near to the end of that era. Awesome challenge.

I chose And Only To Deceive by Tasha Alexander for this. I'm loving it so far but I don't know if I'll be able to finish it AND review it in time. Ah well! Thanks for the challenge! :D
