2016 Classics Challenge
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to New Years!?!
I've been a bit quiet on here since Christmas, I do have some posts scheduled but not a tonne! This is just a quick post to chat to you all about the 2016 Classics Challenge!
I have a lot of classics, I kind of collect them in different editions even though I haven't actually read most of them! There's a few I've read, but not really enough and for the past few months I've been meaning to read one a month and I've failed epically!
Then I discovered via Twitter that the lovely Stacey at The Pretty Books actually runs a Classics Challenge basically doing what I've been trying to do! So I thought I'd jump on board the challenge because by doing this Challenge and tweeting and instagramming and blogging about it means that I'll actually do it because all of you will call me out on it if I don't! I'll have some accountability for it basically! I'm incredibly indecisive though so Lord knows how I'm going to pick one each month!
What I'll Be Reading
Like I said...I have A LOT of classics, I'm not sure exactly which ones I'm going to read yet, but there's a couple I definitely want to get to!
Pride and Prejudice
This has been on my shelf forever and I have like....three or four editions of it, and I kinda started reading the first chapter ages ago and so I should probably ya know...finish it!
Again, this has been on my list for ages, I only have two copies of this, I'm thinking I may read this in January because the cover of one of mine fits with the miserable vibe the weather is giving off most of the time!
This would actually be a re-read to be honest! I read it back in GCSE's and I've been wanting to read it again!
Another re-read, I haven't read this book in years and it's definitely my favourite, or at least one of my favourites! I'd probably read this around October but then I might read Frankenstein instead or try to read both, we'll see!
I have many, many Dickens books, and I really want to read at least one this year! I was going to read A Christmas Carol in December but I completely had no time I swear! I haven't decided which Dickens book I'll try to read, so if you have a favourite Dickens book let me know!
I'm talking Nineteen Eighty-Four, Catcher in the Rye and To Kill a Mockingbird. Yes, I can hear your gasps of shock, please don't shun me! I'll hopefully read all or one or two!
My Dad's obsessed with Sherlock, and I have been known to watch episodes without complaining copious amounts so I think I'll make an effort to try to read a Holmes book!
Those are my "I really need to read these before everyone discovers I'm a shame to the book community" books, I have quite a nice stack of English Library classics as well as Word Cloud and Barnes and Noble, and these aren't all of them obviously, out of the others I have no idea what I'll read, I'll probably choose each month or pick a couple and have you guys vote on Twitter because like I said...I'm indecisive!
