Reading Challenge 2022: Short Classics

Happy New Year Guys!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are ready to start a New Year of reading!

For this year, I will be reading as many short classic novels as possible. What inspired this challenge as I do enjoy the occasional classic novel though the only problem is most are quite long and difficult to read.

However I came across on Interest the post below which lists a number of short classic novels that can be read in a day – some I have read before, most I haven’t and some I’ve never heard of (the only one I had already read and reviewed on this blog is A Christmas Carol) so I figured why don’t I read as many of these as possible over the year and  encourage people to do the same.

As I read each one I’ll tick them off and add a link to the post below.

The books are:

  • The Great Gatsby
  • Animal Farm
  • The Pearl
  • The Old Man & The Sera
  • A Christmas Carol
  • Of Mice And Men
  • Siddhartha
  • Breakfast At Tiffany’s
  • The Metamorphosis
  • Night
  • Speedboat
  • Bonjour Tristesse
  • Sula
  • Things Fall Apart
  • The Little Prince
  • The Turn Of The Screw
  • Mrs Dalloway
  • One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich
  • Who Will Run The Frog Hospital?
  • We Have Always Lived In The Castle
  • Franny and Zooey
  • Wide Sargasso Sea
  • Letters From A Father To His Daughter
  • Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
  • The Tale Of Peter Rabbit
  • Matilda
  • The Story Of Doctor Doolittle
  • Chronicles Of A Death Foretold
  • Lord Of The Flies
  • The Autobiography Of An Ex-Colored Man
  • O Pioneers!
