I’ve really enjoyed reading more classics over the past two years. It’s meant that I have read 24 ‘classic’ books, which is more than I had read in my entire lifetime before I started the challenge. I do tend to stretch the meaning of ‘classic’ – I’ve read Roald Dahl and Agatha Christie alongside Charlotte Brontë and Oscar Wilde. I’ve read non-fiction like In Cold Blood alongside children’s classics like Mary-Mary. And I’ve enjoyed the majority of them; some of them have become favourites of mine.
If you’ve seen my 2014 bookish resolutions, you’ll know that I’m continuing with the ‘classics challenge’ this year, alongside the 50 Book Challenge. You can see the classics I read in 2012 here and in 2013 here. I’ll also link to each book review I write this year below. I now have a ‘classics’ shelf on Goodreads, which should help me decide what to pick up next! I am determined to read Great Expectations this year…
