The Classics Club | New list

Hi, folks!

As most of you know, The Classics Club is a group of readers committed to reading and blogging about at least 50 classics over a period of five years.

“The Classics Club was started on March 7, 2012 by a blogger who wanted to see more people posting about classics literature in the blogosphere. Her goal was to, “unite those of us who like to blog about classic literature, as well as to inspire people to make the classics an integral part of life.” She thought about several ideas but finally settled on inviting people to make out a list of (at least 50) classic titles they intend to read and blog about within the next five years.” Here.

I joined the group in 2013, had several lists since then, and never looked back. However, I don’t feel that my current list will be finished in time, since 2020 seems to have messed up with all my reading plans. And, to be frank, I look at that list and simply don’t feel like picking up any of the titles still to be read. So, I am making a fresh start & creating a new list for the next five years.

Most of the books I listed below will be rereads for me, but this is what I am seeking right now, and these are books I want to pick up soon. I will update this post as I go along. You will be able to find a link to this post on my projects page.

  1. Wow, fascinating choices–I had to stop and Google several. I have Daddy’s Gone a Hunting and My Brilliant Career on my general TBR list. The Children’s Hour was mentioned a lot in one of my dark-ages high school English classes. Amazing I can recall that. Happy Reading

  2. Great list! I loved Red Pottage; O, the Brave Music; and Guard Your Daughters. I also loved the Emily Eden novels – they’re combined into one edition but they’re really unrelated, you don’t have to read them together. Both are good but I preferred the second.
