The Classics Club

Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of people on Youtube talking about their Classic TBR lists and I keep thinking “Wow, that book sounds so awesome!” I have wanted to read a number of classics for a while now, and so when I found The Classics Club I figured I should join up and attempt to tackle some classics! The following is my list of classics that I would like to finish within the next 5 years (so by December 21, 2018). I have 60 books on the list, but I am only planning on reading 50 since there is no way I will be able to read 1 classic a month for the next 5 years. I couldn’t decide which 10 I was going to knock off the list so left all 60. I’ll decide as I go along reading.
