My Classics Club List

Here is the list of classic that I plan on reading. Most of them I have collected over the years, but as yet have not read. The asteriak mark *  means this is a reread for me. I hope to complete this list by Aug 1 2017. I consider memoirs to be classics.

  1. I had never heard of the L.M Montgomery title on your list but I'm a big fan of the Anne books by her so I'm off to check it out now!

    We have a few books in common on our lists so I'll be interested to see what you think. The Railway Children is great (actually just Nesbit in general!) and I really liked Northanger Abbey.

    1. There is a sequel to Pat of Silver Bush called Mistress Pat, so I plan on reading it assuming I enjoy the first book. I also have some of her other books, Emily of New Moon and The Story Girl.

      I will have to check out your list. Have you seen any of the BBC movie versions of Northanger Abbey? I haven't as yet, put plan on watching movies that are based on any books that are on my list.

    2. That's a really good idea! I haven't actually, but I'm going to be doing a bit of Jane Eyre movie watching (the one with Michael Fassbender in it!) soon... I may join you with the watching films of the books idea :-)

  2. I love checking out people's lists. Your #67 looks interesting. I've heard of the show but had forgotten it was a novel. :)
