I’ve finally decided to join The Classics Club! It is a challenge whereby you commit to reading 50 (or more) classics within 5 years. Which means by 01 May 2018 I would have hopefully read all the 50 books that I’m going to list in this post.

I have thought about joining for a while, especially since I love reading classics. Another reason for joining is that a lot of my book blogging peers (friends) joined and have invited (told) me to come to the party… and now I am 🙂

I have added two Afrikaans (my first language) fiction novels and two South African fiction classics, because I don’t read many of them and I want too!
