I rarely read classics. I just don’t like them that much. But every year I tell myself I’m going to read at least one classic a month and every year I usually fail. So now I’ve decided to join a public challenge which which hopefully hold me accountable!
You can read all about the 2016 12 Month Challenge here.
January- A classic you’ve always wanted to read-Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
February- A classic you’ve always dreaded reading-Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (or anything by Dickens really)
March- A classic you’ve been recommended-Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
April- A classic you’ve seen the movie/miniseries/TV show of-Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson (ok so i’ve seen the cartoon Treasure Planet but same thing right?)
May- An American classic-The Tell-Tale Heart and Other Writings by Edgar Allen Poe
June- A British classic-Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Wolf
July- A European classic (non-British) Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
August- A modern classic-Lord of the Flies by William Golding
September- A children’s classic-The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum
October- A classic by a female author-Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
November- A classic by a male author-The Island of Dr. Moreau by HG Wells
December- A classic written under a pseudonym- Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I’ll be happy if I read at least 6 of these!
