Stephanie's Intro and List of books!

Hi everyone!! Sorry for the delay in posting! After joining up with this challenge, I went on vacation. Then experienced technical difficulties with my modem. But now that I'm up and running, I wanted to say HI!! I read such a variety of books anyway. From cozies to classics, vampire books to non-fiction. Fantasty and historical fiction. Science fiction and award winners. I figured this challenge would be a chance to learn something new....and read some classics I've wanted to for a very long time!!

That being said, here is the list of books that I have chosen for this challenge:

  • Candide by Voltaire
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
  • Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert (re-read)
  • Nana (or The Ladies' Paradise) by Emile Zola
  • Paradise Lost by John Milton
  • Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
  • Indiana by George Sand
  • The Black Tulip by Alexandre Dumas
  • The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene
  • History of My Life by Giacomo Casanova
  • The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli
  • Justine by Marquis de Sade

I stuck with mainly fiction, since that's the genre I'm most interested in. 12 books for 12 months, but who knows if I'll be able to make through all of them!

Fantastic selection! I'm interested in what you'll think of the George Sand, she's a writer I always intend to read more of but never get round to.
