I can’t believe we’re coming to the end of the 2015 Classics Challenge! (But don’t worry, the challenge will return in 2016!). I’m reading Charles Dickens’ Great Expectation this month, but, as promised, you get to pick my December classic! In January, you picked Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen for me to read. Now choose from the classics below!
For pre-1945 classics, I picked Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse. I’ve never read anything by her before, so it seems a good time to start. And I’m curious about Three Men in a Boat – it’s meant to be very funny! I also picked two post-1945 classics. I chose John Wyndham’s The Midwich Cuckoos and newly bought We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson – both spooky in their own ways! And lastly, I included two children’s classics. I’m very much looking forward to reading both Dodie Smith’s The Hundred and One Dalmatians, beautifully illustrated by Alex T. Smith, and Susan Cooper’s fantasy adventure, The Dark is Rising. But which one I pick up in December is up to you!
You picked The One Hundred and One Dalmatians for me to read this month!
