The Warden Readalong

Sunday, March 2, 2014


 
Today our Chronicles of Barsetshire Readalong officiall begins (well technically yesterday)! We start with The Warden, a slim novel that clocks in at only 176 pages. Amanda at Fig and Thistle is co-hosting with me, so make sure to stop by her blog as well!
 
"An 1855 tale of English ecclesiastical life, this work from the author's Barsetshire series relates the humor and pathos that ensue when a kindly clergyman becomes the subject of a scandalous tabloid treatment charging him with financial impropriety. Features a cast of amusingly realistic and memorable characters, naturalistic dialogue, and consummate plotting." 
 
Up next on the schedule:
 
April: Barchester Towers
May: Doctor Thorne
June: Framley Parsonage
July: The Small House at Allington
August: The Last Chronicle of Barset
 
We'll be posting a start post at the beginning of the month for each book and a wrap up post at the end of the month. Along the way we'll be tweeting our thoughts at #Trollope2014.

Enjoy The Warden and say hello to my old friend Septimus Harding . I'll catch up with the Readalong in May since I've been meaning to red Dr Thorne for a long time and you'll be giving me a much needed prod.

I read The Warden years ago. Even though I didn't love it, I'd still like to continue with Barchester Towers. I'll have to see how things go with Middlemarch this month...

bookertalk - We'll see you then!

JoAnn - I'm curious how I'll react to this series. I hope I love them!
