Back to the Classics Challenge 2012

by Charlotte Reads Classics

I’m very excited about this challenge, hosted by Sarah Reads Too Much. So I’ve made my list already. It might change between now and January but I’ve tried to pick books I’ve wanted to read for ages so this should be pretty much it.

  • A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens (19th Century classic)
  • Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf (20th Century classic)
  • Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy (Reread a classic)
  • Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare (Classic play)
  • The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins (Classic mystery/ horror/ crime)
  • Middlemarch by George Eliot (Classic romance)
  • Life and Fate by Vasily Grossman (Translated classic)
  • The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy (Award winning classic)
  • The Odyssey by Homer (Classic set in a country I’m unlikely to visit)
