Psst! If you’d like to read some of Victor Hugo’s novels, I would suggest Ninety-Three, Notre-Dame de Paris, and Les Miserables. If you’d like some support while reading, I would highly recommend joining this free online book club that my friend Lisa runs. It’s called Read With Me, and you can find all three of these novels there. She’ll read them aloud and share her reactions.
