The Classics Bookclub at 5 Minutes for Books is ending, so I went back to my start-up post to see how I did. I had to chuckle that I only read one of the books I mentioned in my sign-up post (Fahrenheit 451), but I did end up reading several other classics during the year that I hadn't planned on. Here are the classics I read this year:
- The Nonesuch by Georgette Heyer
- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
- Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne
- The Awakening by Kate Chopin
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
My favorite classic read this year was To Kill a Mockingbird, and that was a re-read (I read it the first time in high school). My least favorite was Around the World in Eighty Days, though that isn't going to keep me from giving Jules Verne another try at some point in the future. I'm positive I will continue to read and review classics on my blog, and I'd love to read more than six classics in 2011 (here I go, challenging myself for the new year!).
I've enjoyed the Classics Bookclub, though I wish I would have participated more. Thank you 5 Minutes For Books for hosting this enjoyable event!
