I saw a post about this at Lost in Books and couldn’t resist. A small, practical part of my brain is telling me a sixth reading challenge is perhaps not what I need, but the rest of it is still basking in a rosy glow of classics adoration after finishing Far from the Madding Crowd. (I cannot believe I forgot almost everything about that book!) The majority won, so not only am I signing up, I’m going for the “classics feast” option and bonus - six books plus one future classic.
Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen (re-read)I can’t wait for the first of April!
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë (re-read; overlap with Victorian Challenge)
The Red Badge of Courage - Stephen Crane
Bleak House - Charles Dickens (overlap with Chunkster and What’s in a Name? 2 Challenges - I need all the encouragement I can get if I’m going to get through it!)
Metamorphoses - Ovid (overlap with Centuries Challenge)
Macbeth - William Shakespeare (re-read)
Bonus: Possession - A. S. Byatt (re-read; overlap with Chunkster Challenge)
