I haven’t decided what I want to read. I guess whenever I finish a book I will just add it beside the month. Make sense?
A classic you’ve always wanted to read- Start the year off with a bang! Vampires: Back in Time to the First Darkness – The Original Stories
February- A classic you’ve always dreaded reading- Get that book out of the way… and who knows! You may end up loving it!
March- A classic you’ve been recommended- We all have those
A classic you’ve seen the movie/miniseries/TV show of- If you’re like me you’ve probably seen quite a few film versions before being able to read the book. It’s time for that book to get read! The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (The Chronicles of Narnia) by C.S. Lewis
May- An American classic
June- A British classic
July- A European classic (non-British)
August- A modern classic- Up to your interpretation

A classic written under a pseudonym- If you don’t know which books were written under pseudonyms here’s a few names to help you out. Jane Austen wrote her books under a pseudonym (by a lady) as did the Bronte sisters (published their books under male pseudonyms), George Elliot (real name Mary Ann Evans) and Agatha Christie also wrote a few books under the Pseudonym Mary Westmacott. Men who also have written under Pseudonyms are Mark Twain (real name Samuel L. Clemens) and Lewis Carroll (real name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson). I’m sure there’s more out there but there’s a few to start you out. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
