Terris | 2437 comments I like your list! I'm also trying to get to North and South and Shadows on the Rock (love Cather!). I should probably read So Big also (have never read Ferber but want to!). Have fun with your challenge :)

Petra Great list, Candi.
I'm also a fan of Cather.
I haven't heard of The Country of the Pointed Firs. I'm off to investigate. :D

Oh yes, Cather is one of my favorites too, Terris! I've never read Ferber either, so am looking forward to discovering a new author :)

Thanks, Petra! I've read and enjoyed several Cather novels, and am glad that there are still several left for me to dive into. I can't remember where I first came across The Country of the Pointed Firs - likely from reading someone's excellent review though :)

Veronique | 908 comments Oh, two of my all time favourites! North and South, and Remains of the Day! Hope you like them too. Haven’t tried Cather yet...
Great list ;0)

Thank you for the endorsement of those two books, Veronique! I've read one other Gaskell - Wives and Daughters - and absolutely loved it. Looking forward to these reads. Do give Cather a try if you can - her writing is a delight :)

Super list, Candi. All the books I have read on it are superb. I loved Country of the Pointed Firs because it felt like a visit to Maine for me, and Cat's Eye is my very favorite Atwood (and I am a huge fan of all her work).

Happy 2018!

Thank you, Sara! I'm very excited to take a crack at completing this challenge. Happy 2018 to you, too!!

Sue K H (sky_bluez) | 3183 comments Great list Candi. I have The Remains of the Day and North and South on different challenges for 2018.

I loved North and South, The House of Mirth and Cannery Row.

Have fun!

Mercedee Hutton (mercedeeh) | 26 comments Fantastic list! Several I haven't had on my radar--Pointed Firs and Cather. Will be investigating too. Thank you for sharing, Candi!

Thank you, Mercedee! I am excited about the list :) Jewett is a new-to-me author, and Cather is a real treat if you get a chance to read one of her novels :)

Candi (candih) | 770 comments I've got my old school's done and a couple of others! My reviews for those are posted in Women Authors challenge and/or Bingo Challenge.
