2013 Classics Challenge

Category: 2013, Challenge | Tags:

One of my goals this year is to read some classics that I’ve never read.    I think my goal will be to read at least 6 classic novels this year.  Here are some things I’d like to read:

  • Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
  • Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
  • A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
  • The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Books Read:

  1. Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien (finished 3/23/13) – I liked these books, but I had a hard time staying into them when there were pages and pages of walking.  I liked the battles and when stuff was actually going on.

I am trying to not start too many challenges this year, but this one looks like a good one!

The 2013 Feminist Reads Challenge

I am going to start with the Medium Challenge and commit to read 5-10 books that feature strong female characters or support feminist ideals in 2013!  I haven’t decided which books they will be, but I will update this post as I read them.
  1. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (2/2/13)
  2. The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell (4/27/13)

I ended up not even keeping up with what I was reading monthly.  Sad!  I was derailed in August because I did a Sci-Fi Lit class where I was only reading parts of books and some were eBooks, so I lost track of how many pages I’d read.  Then I got busy and stopped reading as much, which happens in the fall a lot, and I moved, which took up a lot of time.  Now I am back to reading quite a bit, but I’m rereading instead of reading new books.  But I do love the Harry Potter series so much!

It wasn’t a bad year, though.  I didn’t finish the alphabet challenge, but I did finish the PBS YA Challenge.  I’ll be attempting that challenge again in 2013, so I’ll put up a new post soon.  I’m going to attempt to do monthly posts again, maybe with a small tweak to the format.  I like that I am reading whatever I want to, not because it fits a challenge category or whatever, so I hope to continue that as the year begins and not get caught up in finishing the challenges and stuff like that.  We shall see!
