Back to the Classics 2018

The books I have chosen to read for the Back to the Classics 2018 Challenge are as follows:-

A 19th century classic - Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens

A 20th century classic - The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey

A classic by a woman author - Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

A children's classic - The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley

A classic travel or journey narrative - 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

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

Re-read a favourite classic - A Scots Quair by Lewis Grassic Gibbon

I think I was too ambitious in choosing 8 books for this challenge as I only managed to read half of them.  However I did enjoy these - see my reviews on these books.

  1. Good list. I tried Under the Greenwood Tree but didn’t get past the first chapter although I really loved some of his other books.
