As I planned in an earlier post, I have decided to dedicate much of my reading in 2014 to classic novels and stories.
Recently I have bought a few novels to begin my endeavours, to add to my miserably small collection of classics.
I’ve already started Great Expectations, and my own expectations are high!
And I have come into ownership of the perfect thing for classic literature: a digital library containing over 3000 classic books, on a flashdrive shaped like a book!
A few of the authors I plan to read throughout the year include Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, the Brontë sisters, Agatha Christie, JRR Tolkien, WIlliam Shakespeare (Do plays count? I say yes!), Mark Twain, F Scott Fitzgerald, and Victor Hugo.
I will do my best to review each and every single book I read throughout the year, including those which are not classics – I can’t possibly resist the other things I have to read, so I’ll read a classic every other book or so.
In other news:
- My Page to Screen review of the 2013 adaption of Carrie is coming shortly
- I’m considering writing and posting a short story each month, possibly every first Sunday – Short Story Sunday!
- One of my resolutions for the New Year is to finish writing Angelic (I’ve let my writing slip a bit, unfortunately) and send it off to a publisher
- I am currently reading Dickens’ Great Expectations, and afterwards will finally get to cry over Rick Riordan’s The House of Hades
I think 2015 might be my Year of finishing-the-books-I-own-but-have-not-yet-read…
