Hi guys, Welcome! For my 2nd Connect Five Friday post I have decided to talk to you about the 5 classics that I want to read in the first half of this year.
Connect Five Friday is a new feature/link up started by Book Date. For this feature you will have to make a list of five books or things connected to books. There is no set topic, so you can make a list of any bookish related topics.
In 2020 I have decided to read one classic every month, so that means hopefully I will have read 12 classics by end of this year. By that calculation I am supposed to read 6 books in the first half, but as I have already started reading the classic for this month (Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery) so I am excluding it from the list. The list below contains the 5 classics that I have yet to read.
Now without much further ado lets get started.
The Tenant of the Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte
This one is considered as one of the first feminist novels. It was written in 1848. A feminist tale of 19th century, sounds very intriguing, really excited to read it.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
This will be a reread actually. I had read it the first time a long time ago, some 10-12 years back but before watching the new Little Women movie, I want to read it again. Last time I really enjoyed this book, hopefully I will enjoy it this time too.
The Count of Monte Cristo Alexandre Dumas
This book has been sitting on my self for a really long time, I really don’t know why I haven’t read it yet even though I find the revenge plot very intriguing. But anyway, I hope to change that soon. Can’t wait to read this one.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
This book has been recommended by my father and also by my favourite classic’s booktuber, so I am really excited to read this one.
Twelve years a Slave by Solomon Northup
I have watched the movie for this one, but well, I always feel that movies are not enough, I require more details, so I really need to read the book. I just hope that I love the book as much as I loved the movie.
Have you read the classics mentioned above or are any of these on your TBR pile?
