I‘ve made another book list 😊. Yes, I know there are a ton of books not on here, lol—it‘s only introductory ☺️. I also make these for my library patrons, so 95% of these need to be available for them 😁. So, here‘s close-up 1/5 of my #Memoir list! (Here ya go, @ljuliel ! 🤗)

Have you read any of these?!

Auntynanny The Scarlet Letter, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea 2w
LittleBug The Scarlet Letter, A Study in Scarlet, Treasure Island, Twenty thousand Leagues, Uncle Tom‘s Cabin. Most of them so long ago that I barely remember them though🙈 2w
Christy2318 The Scarlet Letter (UGH), Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Soulless ❤️, Vanity Fair ❤️, Wuthering Heights 2w

ljuliel Shadow Country , Tenant of Wildfell Hall , Treasure Island , Woman in White. ***. @MrBook .... just curious how does Shadow Country fit in with this category ? It doesn‘t remind me of the rest . It doesn‘t seem like it‘d fit in a Victorian book list. (edited) 2w
Scochrane26 @Christy2318 That is also my feeling about Scarlet Letter 😂 I‘ve also read Wuthering heights, Walden, Uncle Tom‘s Cabin, a Study in Scarlet, Strange Case of the Alchemist‘s Daughter, Jekyll & Hyde. If Alchemist‘s Daughter is on here, then the Lady Sherlock series & other spin-offs of Holmes should be listed. 2w
MrBook @ljuliel It takes place over the course of late 1800s and first decade of the 1900s, and the Victorian Era runs 1837-1902. I saw it on a list and thought the same, lol, but it qualifies as much of it is based on true historical events that occurred in the late era. 2w
MrBook @Scochrane26 I only have so much room on my introductory list 😆🙌🏻, and AD would be a good jumping off point for the others. 2w
ljuliel Thanks @MrBook ... I was just trying to figure out how a bunch of folks who lived back in the Everglades in the swamps would have been called a Victorian book. I guess I had a different picture of what that‘d mean. I pictured the big old houses , ladies in long pretty dresses , etc. 😊 2w
Scochrane26 @MrBook True. The Sherlock, Dracula, & Frankenstein spin-offs & retellings could be a whole list. 2w
MrBook @ljuliel 😆👏🏻🙌🏻 I hear ya! One tends to think of the British Isles, and maybe France and some other parts of Europe. I included some of the bigger and more well-known American counterparts to expand the picture a bit. 😊 2w
MrBook @Scochrane26 Now you gave me another idea! 😆🙌🏻🍻 2w
TheSpineView 6 on this list. I wish I could say more than that. 2w

An interesting analysis of art history focusing on the role of the viewer more than that of the artist, incorporating the purpose of the objects as well. Beautifully illustrated with clear photographs (more books like this need this kind of photos), and concise description.

In the end, images of power are only as powerful as those who view them allow them to be.
