my final list for the Classics Challenge

I finally made up my mind about my reading list for the Classics Challenge. It took me a while, but I think I now have it :)

The goal for the Classics Challenge is to read 3-5 classics between July 1 and November 30.

My intended reads are:
Honoré de Balzac - The Girl With The Golden Eyes
Emily Bronte - Wuthering Heights
Theodor Fontane - Frau Jenny Treibel

And my alternates:
Jane Austen - Mansfield Park
Paul Auster - Moon Palace
Victor Hugo - Les Misérables
William Shakespeare - Macbeth

  1. Ooh, Les Miserables is a great choice. I read it in a French class in high school and it wasn't such a great experience because I struggled with the translation. I'd like to read it translated in English. I may do that. Macbeth is a wonderful choice too! I'm really looking forward to this challenge! Thanks for doing it :)
