By the Century

This is a listing of books (mostly fiction), organized century, that I have reviewed on the site . A link to a review on this site is provided where available. I have omitted modern nonfiction and children’s picture books, although I have included some classic children literature (non-picture books). I have also tried to label the decade in which each work was written.

Note that some works or collections were written over the course of many decades or, in the case of older works, centuries. This may be because the exact dates are unknown or because the work I read was a collection of many writings. In such cases, I have labeled the work as I felt appropriate, possibly when the first was written or the average of the publication dates. There may be errors; please let me know if you observe any egregious ones. This is for my own use, but of course you may review it and provide any feedback or suggestions as are appropriate.
