Classics Challenge 2012

The challenge will be hosted by November’s Autumn over here, and now I’ll finally read more classics! The last one I read was Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and it was last year… shame on me, I know. But next year I’ll make myself read more classics and, if life doesn’t get in the way, maybe even more than seven. Here’s my list for now, but who knows what I’ll decide later on:

 

 

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett

I bought this a couple of weeks ago in this year’s book fair here in my city and have been wanting to read it ever since.

 

 

Emma by Jane Austen

I’m ashamed to say I’ve had this book for years now and never even opened it, but I also promised myself that next year I’ll read as many Austen books as possible. And my copy has this beautiful flowered cover that I love.

 

 

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

I’ve tried to read this book about three times now and can never make it past the first couple of chapters, but I really want to finish it so I’m going to try again.

 

 

 

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

I’ve wanted to read this book for a while now and as a fan of mystery I’m pretty excited to finally do it.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

This book has always captured my attention at bookstores, but I never bought it. On my birthday this year I was very happy to find out a copy on my table.

 

 

 

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

I really really want to read this book, there’s sword fight and adventures and secrets… what’s not to love?

 

 

Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne

I’m not sure I’ll end up reading this book, but it’s on my TBR list and on my bookshelf.

North and South - Elizabeth Gaskell

 

 

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

I’ve hear lots of good things about this book so I think I’ll give it a try next year too.

  1. Ooh! Thank you for reminding me about A Little Princess I love the storyline but have never read the book. North and South is a real treat, I love Elizabeth Gaskell and look forward to reading your thoughts on it and all of your Classics reading next year. Thank you for joining the challenge, Amanda! :)

    • I think A Little Princess is going to be a very good book and I’ll read it no matter what, I also heard it’s pretty sad which is not my usual book style but let’s see how it goes. I’ve heard such good things about North and South that I needed to put it in my list. Oh no, thank you for doing this amazing challenge!
