Time to start thinking about next month's novel! Let's get those suggestions in so we can get a poll up.

You beat me to it, Ace. That was going to be my suggestion too.

Cheryl | 17 comments I also want to read Frankenstein by Mary Shelley . :)
I was thinking about this book yesterday and I had a feeling we might be reading it soon.

Lois (loisbennett) Hello from a new member! :)

I'd like to nominate Agnes Grey Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë .

I'm reading The Tenant of Wildfell Hall at the moment, and blown away by Anne Bronte's writing - she's fantastic - better than Charlotte, if you ask me (and I love Charlotte!)...

Lois (loisbennett) I'm happy to go with Frankenstein since it's 3 - 1. It's only fair, especially in the absence of a poll.

Lois, I think that is what we will end up doing unless I get another couple of suggestions today.

Frances (francesab) Hello, I've just joined and am looking forward to meeting you.

I would love to do Frankenstein as well but agree that a Bronte would be a great future pick. I also loved The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

Frances (francesab) Have people started yet? I'm on chapter 5 and was initially somewhat confused by the opening letters (as I had downloaded a free version I was worried I had the wrong book until I'd checked with a friend). I was also surprised at how quickly the creature is made-I had rather assumed there would be a lot more detail on the process and that the life-giving moment would be a major climax of the book, not achieved by chapter 5. I hope to get more read over the next couple of days.
