12 Month Classics Challenge

Well, I've been posting quite a lot these days. It's rather odd.
I think it's always good idea to read more good books, and any excuse will do. That is why, when I saw the 12 Month Classics Challenge, I decided to join.
The idea is to read once classic book a month, according to the theme of that month (see more information here). I may or may not write a review of these books, and I may or may not finish them in the month they're supposed to be read in. ;) If they're reviewed, I'll link to them here.

January: A classic you've always wanted to read — Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
February: A classic you've always dreaded reading — Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
March: A classic you've been recommended — The Blue Castle (I've not been personally recommended this but I've heard much praise of it) by L. M. Montgomery
April: A classic you've seen the movie of — Lord of the Rings (I have read the book, but only once all the way through, and I've seen the movie far more) by J. R. R. Tolkien, of course
May: An American classic — Either The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper or The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
June: A British classic — Either The Tale of Two Cities or Bleak House, both by Charles Dickens
July: A non-British European classic — The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan
August: A modern classic — Reread A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
September: A children's classic — Reread The Narnian Chronicles (or as much of it as I can), by C. S. Lewis
October: A classic by a female author — Reread Anne of Green Gables series (or as much of it as I can), by L. M. Montgomery
November: A classic by a male author — Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
December: A classic written under a pseudonym— Silas Marner by George Elliot

  1. Ooh I just read Little Women and Anne of Green Gables! So excited you're going to re-read The Lord of the Rings! Let me know how it goes the second time around :)

    1. I've seen the movie of Little Women and my drama group is doing a play of it this year, so I decided it was time to read it. :-D I love Anne of Green Gables!!
      I'm excited too! I've started it more than once, but never got more than half-way through on a reread.

  2. I think, I might read Wuthering Heights, I heard it's kind've Gothic, and that appeals to me

    1. Oh, yes? Have you read Jane Eyre? It's by Emily's sister.

  3. Oh I actually didn't realize you hadn't read little women yet. Be sure to read Little Men and Jo's boys too.

    1. Of course I shall, if you recommend them.


Spill your thoughts. Observe common courtesy. You'll make me happy.
