*UPDATE*

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

French Revolution Mini Challenge

I enjoy mini challeges - you get just a small dose of something and it feels so good to know that you made progress and finished something (which happens quicker this way). So I signed up for another challenge - but I think I'm going to wait until sometime in the new year to take this one on.

The French Revolution Mini Challenge is hosted by Becky at Mini Challenges Hosted by Becky.

The rules for this mini challenge are simple - read 2 books (or watch 2 movies) that are set during the French Revolution. The challenge runs from October 1, 2009 until December 31, 2010 (so there is plenty of time to get this done).

I haven't read much during the French Revolution - any suggestions of what I should read?
I will update this post as I go.
12/10/10 - So I decided that since I'm not going to read 2 books on the French Revolution during this year, I would make it 1 book and 1 movie.

1. The Queen's Dollmaker by Christine Trent - Complete - book
2. Goya's Ghosts - Complete - movie

  1. Welcome to the challenge! I look forward to seeing what you choose :)

    I've only read The Scarlet Pimpernel. It is in part what inspired the challenge. :)

  2. Tale of Two Cities by Dickens is an awesome, awesome book about the French Revolution.
    Scarlet Pimpernel is another.

  3. I agree with Susie. Tale of Two Cities is a must if you haven't already read it. It may be an old school classic, but it is a very absorbing book that should fall on your "must read before I die" list. lol

  4. I have Catherine Delors Mistress of The Revolution to read as well as Abundance by Sena Jeter Naslund that would be perfect for this. I'll have to check my schedule!

  5. Definitely The Scarlet Pimpernel, if you haven't already read it!
    I second A Tale of Two Cities, which is a fantastic read, but it's rather a long book and it may not come under the heading of a "mini challenge" :-)

  6. Have you read The Josephine B. Trilogy? You'd have 3 books right there:)
