  1. Oh my goodness, I just scrolled through your reading list – what a mix of emotions! I recognise some titles from my school years, others I’ve loved since (including The Woman In White, which for no sensible reason, is my all time favourite Classic) and some I know in the deep recesses of my heart I will never read. I’m just embarking on a year (if I can make it) of not buying any new books, but instead reading the ones on my shelves that I’ve somehow managed to miss – or indeed to re-read a few that are special to me. I certainly have enough of the titles on your list to keep me busy for a long time, so perhaps you’ve fired me up with enough excitement to add some to my pile.

    So pleased to have found you here in Blogland!

    1. I’m so glad that my list brought back some good memories and emotions! I’m just foraying into Collins’ work with The Moonstone and am enjoying it very much! Definitely plan to read The Woman in White soon and his No Name, which I’ve been told is one of his best.

      The feeling is mutual! I love historical buildings and places, they’re like stepping through time. :)

  2. You’ve got quite a long list, but there are some beautiful novels on there. I do hope that you manage to finish them all.
    I must say that one of my favorites is “The Wasteland” by TS Elliot; it was a coursework text when I read it, and I just fell in love with it. I hope that when you get to it, you find it just as wonderful.

    1. I certainly hope to! :) But it will take some time. Thanks! I’m planning on going shopping for some books next week and will probably buy The Wasteland– I fell in love with poetry last year. :)

      1. I have a Faber anthology of Elliot’s poetry and it is one of my most read books. Poems are brilliant for when you’re short on time but still want to read. I can honestly say that “The Fire Sermon” left more of a lasting impression than some of the novels I’ve read over the years. It’s a story where every word has a reason for being there.
        I hope you enjoy your book shopping :-)

  3. Hello Katherine, I am glad to see that there is another blogger who enjoys literary classics :) You sure have a great reading list. I invite you to my blog, Exploring Classics. Cheers.
