I cannot believe we are weeks away from 2018! Where did this year go? Today, I want to give you a little blog update. Starting next year, I am no longer going to be posting my monthly favourites. I did it for two years straight and whilst it has been super fun, I plan to return to a more minimalistic/budgeted lifestyle moving forward. However, I will begin a new segment for my fellow bookworms to enjoy: Monthly Reading Wrap-Ups.
What is that you ask?
Basically, at the end of each month, I will write up mini-plot summaries of all the books I read, provide a star-rating and review them. I’ve seen many Book-Bloggers & Book-Tubers do this whilst receiving plenty of positive feedback so I decided, why not do it too? It will keep me on top of my gigantic TBR and allow me to continue blogging about one of my favourite things in the world: books!
Now onto the Monthly Classics!
I am a huge fan of classic literature but if I’m being honest, I haven’t read that many of them. From January to December, I have allocated one major, unread classic to devour per month. I am certain I can stick to this goal and look forward to finally reading some of the most popular books in history. If all goes to plan, you will see them in my monthly wrap-ups. Here is my list:
JANUARY: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
FEBRUARY: Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
MARCH: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (I was named after this book so it’s high time I read it!)
APRIL: 1984 by George Orwell
MAY: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
JUNE: Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
JULY: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
AUGUST: Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
SEPTEMBER: The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
OCTOBER: Lord of the Flies by William Golding
NOVEMBER: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
DECEMBER: Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Yes…I haven’t read any of the books above. Please don’t judge me! I plan to rectify that in 2018. If you haven’t read these either or wish to re-read them, feel free to take part as well.
Let me know what you think of my blog update and the monthly classics I’ll be diving into. I welcome all feedback!
Peace & Love xoxo
