Future Reading List

https://theclassicsclubblog.wordpress.com

The idea behind the Classics Club is to select 50 classics you’d loved to have read in 5 years.  (so thats 2021 for me) Seeing as I usually review classic novels on my blog, what’s the harm in trying to read 50.. I have tried to include both books that I find really scary, as well as books that I think I am likely to enjoy…. No War & Peace here!!… Here’s my list (and a link to the review if I’ve already read it)
