My fellow bookworms and classic clubbers. If you can believe it, I joined The Classics Club back on the 19th March 2012, which means today marks five years and the end of my challenge! Later in the month, I will do a top ten post for the whole challenge. For now though here is what I have read off my list in the last year:
Five Children and It by Edith Nesbit
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
The Phoenix and the Carpet by Edith Nesbit
The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley
The Story of the Amulet by Edith Nesbit
Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
Mr Harrison’s Confessions by Elizabeth Gaskell
The Sign of the Four by Arthur Conan Doyle
The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
My Lady Ludlow by Elizabeth Gaskell
Which means I have completed…
I can’t really believe I have reached my goal and it is all over! If you had asked me five years ago, I probably would have said I am not sure I will actually read fifty books, however it would be great just to read more classics. Now I need to make the tough decision of whether I go for another fifty by making another list?! If I do it won’t be straight away as I think I deserve a little bit of a break first. For now, keep your eyes peeled for my top ten post which will be coming soon.
Have you read any of these? What classics have you enjoyed over the last year?
