The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Corsets and Cobblestones:  A Victorian Dozen

--selected by Kate Quealy-Gainer, Assistant Editor

Gaslit streets, dank alleys, sweeping romances, grisly murders, and dazzling glamour – what else could a reader ask for on a cold wintry night, but perhaps a nice cup of tea and a blanket to clutch tightly when the thrills get a little too chilling? This month’s dozens features books set in 19th century England and have enough intrigue and enchantment to keep you racing through the pages even as the snow falls lazily outside.
