the classic club

Hello lovelies,

here I am again with a new list for books to read. But this time it isn't to cross out my growing tbr but to read more classics. 

When I was a kid, a teen and even in my early twenties I read a lot of classics. But I still feel, that I haven't read enough. So via thebooksatchel I came across this amazing blog The Classic Club where they listed classics and you can choose from them. The goal here is to read a certain amount of books in a certain time. 

When I had a look at their list I wrote down all the classics I was interessted in. The ones I already read I didn't touch. It turned out to be 74 books that are classics that I want to read! I aspire to read these classics within 5 years. 

Without further ado here are the books:
