your girl is doing the CLASSICATHON READING CHALLENGE 2020!

Hi friends!

I wanted to quickly do a post, albeit a tad bit later than I would have liked, to announce my TBR for the 2020 Classicathon Reading Challenge. Now, if you don’t know, Lucythereader announced this year long classics readathon last year and I KNEW I wanted to challenge myself and complete it.

I have been steadily getting more into classics the last year and have been surprisingly, enjoying them. So when I saw Lucy’s readathon, I just had to particpate.

Essentially, this readathon is a challenge. A challenge to read as many classics in a year as you can. You can set your own goals, or try take part in the baseline challenge to read 12 classics in 2020.

I would love to read at least one classic book per month, but I think I am going to first go for at least 10 classics books…for now!


This challenge will only focus on the classics that I physically have on my bookshelf. SO HERE WE GO BITCHES:

  • Norwegian Wood by Haurok Marukami )my bro picked this out for my monthly ‘my brother chose my book’)
  • If on a Winter’s Night A Traveler by Italo Calvino
  • Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
  • To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
  • Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
  • Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte
  • Cat’s Cradle by Curt Vonnegut
  • Lady Susan by Jane Austen
  • The Professor by Charlotte Bronte
  • The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Okay, that is is my TBR for Classicathon 2020…hopefully! I really wanted to write this post to hold myself accountable and see whether I am able to read all of these books specifically this year!

Let me know if you are also taking part in this reading challenge/readathon and which books you will be reading!

Until next time, happy reading!

All the love,

Allie

  1. Oh wow, I didn’t know Norwegian Wood counted as a classic. I had to read it for my Postmodernism class and since we’re still in the postmodernist era, I just wouldn’t think that would qualify.
    But I guess sometimes if a book becomes influential enough in its genre people sometimes refer to it as a classic.
    If I can give my two cents, Norwegian Wood isn’t worth the time. I just didn’t think there was anything too special about it. Like a less good Catcher in the Rye.

    I’m reading Lady Susan right now. Austen always writes really great characters, but I think Lady Susan is one of my favorites. She’s just kind of this huge flirt and owns it, even in such a repressive time period. I’m not super keen on the letter format, but I guess that’s what was popular back then.

    I hope you enjoy your books! 🙂
