Back to the Classics Challenge

Although I’m still technically doing my Penguin English Library Challenge, it is somewhat of a long term project and not so much a ‘quick’ challenge. Via B.B. Toady’s website I discovered the Back to the Classics Challenge, hosted by Books and Chocolate. And I’m participating!

Winter TBR | Dec/Jan/Feb

What books are on this season’s TBR? Winter is the perfect season to read some big books that have been on my shelves for way too long … I’m also going to do my best in finishing my 2016 Reading Challenge, although with 10 books to go this isn’t an easy task!

I’m not usually a person that dismisses a book easily, but there are a few that I had to put down. Strangely, they are all (modern) classics and I feel a bit ashamed to put them in writing to be honest. However, it doesn’t mean that I’ll never read them again, nor that I do not want to read them. I’m going to try to read as many ‘second chance books’ as I can within this year. There you have it, I just made it a challenge! Continue reading “Top 5 | Books That Deserve A Second Chance”
