Favorite Classics that I've read:
Ok, bear with me here. I realize that the English of this book is practically a different language. I was fortunate enough to have an amazing professor who actually sang it to us, as people would have done when it was passed from person to person. But the story itself is great. Find a version you can read and don't miss this tale!
This book is hard to read for a lot of people. People call it funny, but the humor is dark and wry instead of the laugh out loud type. But if you stick with this story, it will give you great insight into the terror of war and the mindset of the people on the front lines.
All of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Work
F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of my favorite authors. I've read everything he has written; most of them more than once. Fitzgerald can write like nobody's business about broken relationships and failed dreams.
The Bell Jar
Sylvia Plath's unforgettable novel is about the darkness that haunts the mind of one brilliant girl.
Short story, meet Flannery. Flannery, own those short stories.
Classics I want to read:
I've read several Austen novels. I still have to tackle this one about a meddling matchmaker!
A few bloggers had a readalong earlier this year. It seems like they had a blast with this mystery.
A Movable Feast
I've read some things about Hemingway from the view of F. Scott Fitzgerald. It's time to hear the other side of the story!
Dana travels back in time and experiences the horror of slavery first-hand.
The Princess and the Goblin
This classic fairy tale will be my first exposure to George MacDonald and I can't wait!
