Standard

 

 

 

1.Share a link to your club list.

Classics Club is a “A Community of Classics Lovers; The Classics Club hopes to unite readers who blog about classic literature and inspire people to make the classics an integral part of life! The Classics Club is a club created to inspire people to read and blog about classic books. There’s no time limit to join and you’re most welcome, as long as you’re willing to sign up to read and write on your blog about 50+ classic books in at most five years. The perk is that, not only will you have read 50+ incredible (or at the very least thought-provoking) works in five years, you’ll get to do it along with all of these people. Join us! We’re very friendly.”

My list of books is one of many.
2.When did you join The Classics Club? How many titles have you read for the club? (We are SO CHECKING UP ON YOU! Nah. We’re just asking.) 🙂

I joined the Club in October 2015. I have read three (3) books from my list but I read other Classics not on my list.

 
3.What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. The book is not on my Classics Challenge list but I am reading it for Jane Austen month and for The Women’s Classic Literature Event.

 


4.What did you just finish reading and what did you think of it?

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It is not on my Classic Challenge list but it is for my personal Jane Austen month read. If Pride and Prejudice did not convey the social set up of the time: Entailment, Marriage in Gentry Society etc,, I would dislike the story. It is my 2/3 read and after every read the story bothers me even more.
5.What are you reading next? Why?

Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility, Emma or Lady Susan all by Jane Austen to continue my Jane Austen readathon for December.

Anne of Green Gables [Book Review]

Anne of Green Gables

Oh Anne (pronounce it with an “e” *smiles*) has a smart mouth that keeps getting her into trouble after trouble. However, her mouth is part of her selling point which seems to work faster than her heart and mind. I really do like this girl and certainly because no child is without mishaps growing into adulthood, her journey makes for a humorous read. I do appreciate how she learns a moral after every incident. I realize that even with the hardness she places around her heart for some people there is forgiveness just within reach but it’s takes a process to get there.

Agnes Grey [A Book Review]

Anne Bronte

Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte

You know how you feel when you take a stroll enveloped in a gentle breeze accompanied by your thoughts and gentle whispering birds and the clouds dancing above? Well this is Anne Bronte’ s ‘Agnes Grey’. An unaffected prose of the sometimes too busy plot development where the authors tries unsuccessfully to cover a thousand storylines. ‘Agnes Grey’ does not suffer such fate and the reader clearly sees that Agnes is in charge of the story and Miss Murray’s chuckling presentation is there merely to assist in ‘climaxing’ Agnes Grey.
