Books On My Autumn 2019 TBR

I am participating in several reading events this Autumn and my corresponding TBRs are all over the place now, but here are the 10 books I will definitely read (or try to):

  1. Gothic Tales, by Elizabeth Gaskell, edited by Laura Kranzler (2000, from my Classics Club List and RIP TBR)
  2. Moths, by Ouida, pen name of Maria Louise Ramé (1880, from my Classics Club List and my Victober TBR)
  3. Belinda, by Rhoda Broughton (1883, from my Classics Club List and my Victober TBR)
  4. Marcella, by Mrs. Humphry Ward, pen name of Mary Augusta Ward (1894, from my Classics Club List and my Victober TBR)
  5. Red Pottage, by Mary Cholmondeley (1899, from my Classics Club List and my Victober TBR)
  6. Victorian Ghosts in the Noontide: Women Writers and the Supernatural, by Vanessa D. Dickerson (1996, from my RIP TBR)
  7. Diary of a Provincial Lady, by E.M. Delafield (1930, from my Classics Club List and my TBR for The #1930Club, hosted by Karen and Simon in October)
  8. A Struggle for fame, by Charlotte Riddell (1883, from my Victober TBR)
  9. Letty Fox: Her Luck by Christina Stead (1946, my Classics Spin #21 and my pick for September’s Gone With The Book, hosted by Mel)
  10. The Journals of George Eliot, edited by Margaret Harris and Judith Johnston (2000 – this I borrowed from my local library on a whim, just after having finished rereading Middlemarch, as you do…)

And here are some bonus books I may try (if I find the time to):


  1. The Mysteries of Udolpho, Ann Radcliffe (1794, from my Classics Club List and RIP TBR)
  2. I, Coriander, by Sally Gardner (2005, from my RIP TBR)
  3. Things We Lost in the Fire, by Mariana Enríquez, tr.  Megan McDowell (2014, from the #Best100WIT list and from my RIP TBR)

That’s all folks! Back in March, I also made a list of Top Ten Books On My Spring 2019 TBR, but only managed to read 4 out of the books I listed there… I hope I will do better with my Autumn picks!

Here are the books I read from my Spring list:

Have you read any of the books I chose for Autumn? And which are the books on your TBR this season?

Yours truly,


Harold Knight, ‘Girl reading’, 1932.
