A Classics Challenge Prompt - December Wrapup

Thanks to Katherine @ November's Autumn for hosting A Classics Challenge.

I've loved participating, looked forward each month to the prompts and have really enjoyed writing posts different from the usual review style. 

December's Prompt 1: Link to your favourite Classic Literature post you've written this year, it doesn't have to be related to this challenge. Just something you enjoy sharing.

 I do love to use pictures (saves me struggling with words) so some of my favourite posts are of the Visual Tour type - a combination of images and quotes or a brief review.

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte
The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome

Prompt 2 :Make a list of what you read for the challenge.

I've read 26 Classics this year including the seven that were on my list for A Classics Challenge ( marked with an *) and completed 11/12 of the prompts. 

January - the author. 
*Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy.
January prompt Level 1
January prompt - Level 2 & 3

February - a character
* North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell - Hannah Thornton

March - Setting
* The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte

April - the Book Cover
* My Antonia by Willa Cather

May - Literary Movement
Howards End by E.M.Forster - The Bloomsbury Group

June - A Visual Tour
* The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot

August - Quotes
* Persuasion by Jane Austen

September - Music
The Godwits Fly by Robin Hyde

October - Chapter Musings
* The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton

November - Looking Back 

Now I look forward to next year and taking part in Katherine's Turn of the Century Literary Salon.


  1. Ireally enjoyed this challenge, and it introduced me to some great blogs, like yours. I need to do my wrap-up post so I can put up the prize picture :) [even though I didn't read the books on my original list!]

    1. I changed a couple on my list early on - titles not authors - but I don't think that really matters. It was a great challenge and always nice to find kindred spirits on new blogs.

  2. congrats Cat for completing the challenge! :)

  3. Congrats on completing the challenge as well as your total of classics read for the year. You have a great set of books there, with some favorites of mine (N&S, Persuasion, and Howard's End). I'll have to check into The Goodwits Fly--never heard of Robin Hyde.

  4. So you just missed July prompt, then? Congratulations for completing the challenge! And now I'm looking forward to the Turn of the Century Literary Salon too..
