December AKA The Month of Challenges-We’re-Going-To-Stick-To-For-2-Months-Tops Sign Ups!
Has such a nice ring to it, doesn’t it!!
I am here today to tell you all I’m finally going to do it!!! I’m finally going to read a classic!!!!!
So this isn’t an official sign up post because for the life of me I can’t find the blog that hosts the Classic a Month challenge????????? If you know who runs the challenge will you let me know so I can link back? In case you don’t know how this challenge works (first, I gotta say you need to work on your deducing skills, cause it’s plain as day in the title bro) you read a new classic book each month for an entire year! I am so pumped! I have been talking about getting into classics (for like my whole life) but in particular since I joined the book blogging community and everyone has read all these fantastic books and I’m over here like if it wasn’t published in the 2000s I probs haven’t read it.
I’ve complied a list of classics I’m totally down to read. You may possess above year 1 counting skills and be able to tell that this list has more then 12 titles (kudos for you). This is because I have no idea what I’m actually planning on reading next year and this list is more of a starting point, if there’s any classics you’ve read that I JUST NEED TO READ let me know!! I’ve put astrics next to the books I’m totally keen on but as you can see yourself there isn’t 12 I’m really excited for :(! Trust me I need your help!
