Monthly Classics & Reading Wrap-Ups!

Hi all!

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

  1. I was just trying to think of a way to incorporate a virtual bookshelf on my blog…not sure if I will do a post and just continue to update it or what!?!?! Can’t wait to see what you do on a monthly basis

    1. Haha that’s how I felt when I posted my bookshelf tour. It would’ve been much easier filmed but I just took pictures section by section and explained what was on it. Thank you for your kind words and support 🙂

  2. I read the classics every Christmas Break and Summer break and attempt to finish them. My all-time favorite classic is Les Misérables, which is mostly due to the musical. I also have loved Oliver Twist, Don Quixote, Tale of Two Cities, and Great Expectations. My next classic I will read is Hunchback of Notre Dame

  3. What a great idea! I love classics but definitely don’t read enough either. I’ve read a few of those on your list and am looking forward to seeing what you think of them. 😀

  4. Sad to see the Monthly Wrap ups go but the change sounds like such an exciting time for your blog. I love your to-read classics. Out of that list of which I’ve read some, I really, really loved 1984. Happy reading my friend. Hope you are well and cannot wait to see you soon x
