  1. Kathrin--

    Just as a head's up, it's Alyson, not Amber. :-) Thanks again for hosting this challenge!

  2. Darn, I'm sooo sorry, Alyson! I already fixed it.

    I can only apologize. My brain's already completely fixed on HP tomorrow... LOL

  3. I read my first selection for the challenge earlier this month, The Hound of the Baskervilles by A. Conan Doyle. My review can be found here:

  4. I completely understand the HP fixation! I've stayed up all night reading it after I picked it up at midnight at the bookstore!

  5. Little Women - Louisa May Alcott

    Kathrin - there's my review for Little Women. So glad to be done with it and move on to the next. I think I'm finally giving up on Vanity Fair as well. Now's just not the right now!

  6. I've read my first one too! It was Siddhartha and unfortunately I wasn't crazy about it and didn't give it a proper review on the blog :( I'll let you know when I post a review for a book. 1 down, 4 to go! I love these challenges :)

  7. The Scarlet Pimpernel - Baroness Emmuska Orczy

    I certainly enjoyed this one more than Little Women! Are we supposed to put our links here or somewhere else??

  8. I read my second classic for the challenge. You can find my review of Persuasion here.

  9. My review for my third and final selection,The Picture of Dorian Gray, is up now. I'll be posting a wrap-up sometime this week.

  10. I posted my wrap up for the challenge today. It can be found
    here. Thank you for hosting this great challenge, Kathrin!

  11. Hi, I finished! And it was fun and great and thanks for putting this together. My wrap up review is here:

    Can you believe I'd never read Jane Eyre? crazy

  12. Just finished my fourth book, East of Eden. Review can be found here:

  13. Hmm...looks like this challenge might have fallen to the wayside. Anyway, I finished! Book #3: Frankenstein - Mary Shelley

    Thanks for hosting!
