Good Reads Set in Victorian England

I recently left a comment on blog that reviewed Michael Cox’s novel The Meaning of Night.  The blogger liked the book very much and so do I.  The Meaning of Night is set in Victorian England.  This seems to be a popular setting for many readers and I thought it might be helpful to those of you looking for books set in this time period to list them here!

 The Meaning of Night: A Confession by Michael Cox

 The Glass of Time: A Novel (sequel to The Meaning of Night) by Michael Cox

The Observations by Jane Harris

The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher: Murder and the Undoing of a Great Victorian Dectective by Kate Summerscale

Count Magnus & Other Ghost Stories by Montague Rhodes James

The Haunted Dolls’ House and Other Ghost Stories by Montague Rhodes James

 These are all great books and I highly recommend each and every one.  They are all fiction, with the exception of Kate Summerscale’s book. 

If you have any to add to the list, please leave a comment!  I would love to hear from you.
