The Classics Club – Book List

Hello guys!
While I was doing some research, I came across The Classics Club. Like I said in my last posts, I absolutely love classics! Joining this club was a no brainer.

The goal is to choose more than fifty books classics (you define what’s a classic) in a time period of your choice (it can go up to five years!).

I made a list and I’ve decided that I’m going to read fifty-two classic books on five years. I’m going to with maximum of time because I have other stuff to read in the meanwhile and I don’t want to aim too high.

Here’s my list!

  • Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy
  • David Copperfield, by Charles Dickens
  • The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens
  • Mrs. Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf
