Classics Month starts in just over a week! A while back, Tasha at Heidenkind’s Hideaway and I decided we just didn’t read enough classics, so we chose March as the month to read more. We’re aiming to read four each, challenging each other to read one classic from our own areas of expertise and reading a classic that’s new to us together.
I have quite an overwhelming list of classics to choose from. At the moment, I’m thinking about:
The Vicar of Wakefield, Oliver Goldsmith
Lorna Doone, R.D. Blackmore
The Warden, Anthony Trollope
Barchester Towers, Anthony Trollope
To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf
Shirley, Villette, and/or The Professor, Charlotte Bronte
The Sea, The Sea, Iris Murdoch
East of Eden, John Steinbeck (which I meant to read this month, but I don’t think it’s going to happen!)
Possibly something by D.H. Lawrence, as I have a collection of his books
And Tasha has challenged me to read Nadja by André Breton.
I think it’s going to be great! If you love classics too, I’d love to feature you for a guest post or guest review. Just leave a comment about it and I’ll be in touch. And of course I’d love more recommendations for reading this month. If it’s not too obscure, my library will probably have it, and I know I need to read more non-Western classics in particular.
