What a delicious Challenge this one is. It’s really hard to try to be realistic and figure that I’ll only be able to manage four books, which is actually Level 1.

Hannah Crafts’ The Bondwoman’s Narrative (est. 1853-1861)
Gustav Flaubert’s Emma Bovary (1857) Trans. Alan Russell
Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace (1865-67)
Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles (1891)
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897)
