I did it!! I read 10 classics from various authors, countries, and time periods in 12 months! (To be honest, a big chunk of those books were read this month *procrastinator*).
This was such a fun challenge, and I’m earnestly considering doing the Back to the Classics 2015 challenge next year, although I still have a little time to decide :)
Here is my wrap-up post listing all of my reviews for this challenge:
- A 20th Century Classic – Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
- A 19th Century Classic – Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
- A Classic by a Woman Author – To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- A Classic in Translation – Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
- A Classic About War – War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
- A Classic by an Author Who Is New To You – Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
- An American Classic –
A Separate Peace by John Knowles
- A Classic Mystery, Suspense or Thriller – Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
- A Historical Fiction Classic – The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
- A Classic That’s Been Adapted Into a Movie or TV Series – North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
- Extra Fun Category: Write a Review of the Movie or TV Series adapted from Optional Category #4 – BBC’s North and South Miniseries
I thoroughly enjoyed every one of these books (except for maybe Wuthering Heights), but if I had to rank my Top 3 it would be: North and South, Little Women, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
Thank you to Books and Chocolate for hosting this challenge!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Are you up for next year’s Back to the Classics Challenge?
