🐳 Classics Club Challenge 🐳

I tend to do a lot of re-reads when it comes to the classics (there’s nothing wrong with reading ‘Emma’ 10 times right?!) so I decided to join the Classics Club challenge. I’ve ventured to read 50 classic books from the list in 3 years and you too can join in at The Classics Club if you dare. So here is my starting list of 50 books. What do you think? Any blinders you think I’ve omitted?

Wish me luck!
