Back to the Classics Challenge, 2018
I'll be taking part in the Back to the Classics challenge again. Last time was fun, choosing all sorts of books I might otherwise have passed over, in my attempt to fit them into the different categories. It's hosted by Books and Chocolate, with several new categories this year. If you'd like to give it a go too, here are the rules and guidelines.
Now for my choices.
A Nineteenth Century Classic - David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
A Twentieth Century Classic - Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
A Classic by a Woman - Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
A Classic in Translation - Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
A Children's Classic - Jane of Lantern Hill by L.M. Montgomery
A Classic Crime Story - 4.50 From Paddington by Agatha Christie
A Classic Travel or Journey Narrative - The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
A Classic with a single-word title - Emma by Jane Austen
A Classic with a colour in the title - Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy
A Classic by an Author that's new to you - Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs
A Classic that scares you - Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
A re-read of a favourite Classic - The Children of the New Forest by Captain Frederick Marryat
