Classics Club

Here you'll find my list for The Classics Club Challenge. 50 classic titles that I'm attempting to read and review before June 2018. See more about my original list here. Reviews will be linked as they are posted.

UPDATE 12/12/2018: Although I left book blogging several years ago, I finished reading my list in December 2018. You can see my summary here.

  1. I love the mix of genres and eras on your list. Here's mine @ Emerald City Book Review

  2. I've got a few of the books you've listed above in my challenge. I'm not getting through mine too quickly & keep adding books that I think I'd prefer to read over some of those I originally listed. Came via Sherry's link up at Semicolon.
