Back to the Classics 2019: Wrap-Up

I read and reviewed eight books for this challenge. My favorite, unsurprisingly, was The Odyssey, but  I really liked all the books. Honorable mention to The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, The Sound & the Fury, and Macbeth.

This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.

  1. Great variety, and I'd never heard of The House on the Borderland before! I have a penchant for late Victorian/early Edwardian sci-fi so I'll have to check that out. 🙂
