An Ambitious Year of Dickens

by Charlotte Reads Classics

Next year is Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday! Having recently discovered (perhaps a little late) how brilliant he is, I’m going to try and read as many of his novels in 2012 as possible. I’m really excited to extend my repertoire and am planning to read from his big sixteen novels:
  • The Pickwick Papers, 1837
  • The Adventures of Oliver Twist, 1838
  • The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, 1839
  • Barnaby Rudge, 1841
  • The Old Curiosity Shop, 1841
  • A Christmas Carol, 1843
  • The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit, 1844
  • Domeby and Son, 1848
  • David Copperfield, 1850
  • Bleak House, 1853
  • Hard Times, 1854
  • Little Dorrit, 1857
  • A Tale of Two Cities, 1859
  • Great Expectations, 1861
  • Our Mutual Friend, 1865
  • The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 1870
