Time for Reader Challenge #3! I'm really excited about this one because it's something I've wanted to do for a long time - read books with the characters that form The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novel (I pretend the movie doesn't exist). Luckily this will match up pretty well with the Back to the Classics challenge I posted about on Saturday and another challenge I will be posting about later.
This challenge is hosted by Hanna at Booking in Heels and I think it's an awesome idea.
The Challenge: To read a book featuring each of the nine characters from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novel. It ends up being a total of nine books for the whole challenge.
- Read the nine books between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012
- Write a review for each book, either on a blog, Goodreads, Amazon or some other site that accepts reviews
- Post links to the reviews on the relevant character page on Booking in Heels (to be posted at the first of the year)
Allan Quatermain - King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard
Mina Harker - Dracula by Bram Stoker
Captain Nemo - 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
Tom Sawyer - The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
Dorian Gray - The Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde - The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
Rodney Skinner (who is a replacement for the main character of) - The Invisible Man by HG Wells
James Moriarty - The Final Problem by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
And if you're taking part in the Working for the Mandroid 2012 Sci-Fi Reader Challenge, there's a couple of titles that could easily cover a category in that challenge as well. *coughmadscientistcough*
