I am happy to announce that I also completed the Back to the Classics Challenge 2013, hosted by Sarah Reads Too Much.

Classic that relates to the African-American Experience: 

Classic Adventure: 

Classic that prominently features an Animal (in title or story): 

Optional Categories
  Re-read a Classic:
  • Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen (annotated) - I never ended up blogging about there so no link.
A Russian Classic - didn't do this one!

Classic Non-Fiction- didn't do this one!

Classic Short Stories:
My  favorites turned out to be A Tale of Two Cities and Of Mice and Men.

I'm planning on doing this challenge again in 2014 and it is being hosted by Karen of Books and Chocolate.  


  1. Well done!! I need to publish my wrap-up post too -- I finished all the categories except the Russian (I tried reading Crime and Punishment before Christmas, bad idea. What was I thinking?) And I'm so glad you're going to do the challenge in 2014!

  2. Congratulations on completing the challenge! These are some great books that you read. I am sure, that like me, you are looking forward to reading more great books in 2014.

    Have a happy New Year Jane!

  3. I love A Tale of Two Cities, my second experient with Dickens after reading Oliver Twist in 2013. I will read Dickens again in February 2014 with fellow Dickensian :D
    Dr. Jeckyl & Hyde also my favorite, and I will read Kidnapped in 2014.
    Congratulations for completing the challenge too :D

  4. You read such a great variety of classics!
