Some points about this list –
I have a definite avoidance of girly ‘period’ novels going on: I can’t stand hard-done-by swooning heroines who have to be rescued from their tragic circumstances by the actions of an honourable man!
I quite like Dickens.
I like science fiction / fantasy.
Some of the books I’ve never heard of, so I can’t tell if I want them on my To Be Read list!
