Classics Challenge wrap-up

Well, I simply ran out of time this month and wasn't able to complete the challenge. Poor Wuthering Heights there on the bottom of the pile will just have to go back on the shelf unread. I still want to read it but with so many other books vying for my attention at the moment, it's just going to have to wait. I did finish 4 classics though which is 4 more than I probably would've read without the challenge to urge me on.

Clicking on a title will take you to my review of:
Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
Gigi and The Cat - Colette
The Good Earth - Pearl S. Buck
The Makioka Sisters - Junichiro Tanizaki

Thanks again booklogged. I look forward to next year's challenge!

  2. Good job! And if you get round to Wuthering Heights, send me some motivation. I've yet to make it through that book.

  4. Thanks Les. Even if I don't manage to complete the challenges I sign up for, I usually get some of them read and some is always better than none! :)

    Andi, will do.

    Heather, I hadn't really thought about it but they were quite varied. From book burning in a future dystopia to turn of the century Paris, to rural China, to pre-WWII Japan. Thanks. :)
