This year I was intending on reading 12 categories for the Back to the Classics 2019 Reading Challenge, hosted by Karen at Books and Chocolate, but I ended up doing 10 because Christmas reading snuck up on me and I couldn’t find December books that fit the last two categories. I’ve earned two entries.
- 19th Century Classic: Bleak House by Charles Dickens
- 20th Century Classic: The Crime at Black Dudley by Margery Allingham
- Classic by a Woman Author: Miss Buncle’s Book by D.E. Stevenson
- Classic in Translation: We by Yevgeny Amyatin
- Classic Comic Novel: Something Fresh by P.G. Wodehouse
- Classic Tragic Novel: The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad
- Very Long Classic: The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
- Classic Novella: Double Indemnity by James M. Cain
- Classic From the Americas (includes the Caribbean): The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith
- Classic From Africa, Asia, or Oceania (includes Australia): Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay
It’s too hard to pick a favorite. I honestly enjoyed all of them this year.
