Technically, I was supposed to write a review for every book I read....which I didn't. That being the case, I decided to list all of the books here with a tiny, mini review below each title. Books that I've written full-length reviews on have links below the title.
1. Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
Thought-provoking and useful, definitely will re-read eventually.
2. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
Boring and odd, honestly.
3.Lady Susan by Jane Austen
Finished 9/24/12! (review here)
Interesting, in an evil villainess type of way...
4. Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
Finished 10/5/12! (review here)
Hear the words I never thought I'd say: the movie was better.
5. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Finished 10/22/12! (review here)
One of my favorite Dickens' works, with some of his most memorable characters.
6. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
And one of my least favorites of Dickens' books; I had a hard time getting into it.
7. Cyrano de Bergerac* by Edmond Rostand
Love this one! One of my favorite plays; highly recommended.
8. From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne
Not as interesting as some of Verne's other books; thankfully, it's not nearly as long as most of his other books, either.
9. The Blue Castle by L.M. Montogmery
One of Montgomery's best books, one to re-read and cherish.
10. To Kill a Mockingbird* by Harper Lee
I fully admit I'm not the fan most people seem to be of this novel. But it is a good book, and I love Atticus Finch.
11. The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain
Finished 1/10/13! (review here)
Liked it more than I expected, but not a favorite.
12. Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë
Finished 1/12/13! (review here)
Decent, but bland at times.
13. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Finished 2/15/13! (review here)
The story hidden within this encyclopedia is amazing; it's just a lot to get through. And you'll learn more about the battle of Waterloo and the sewers of Paris than you really wanted to know.
14. Villette by Charlotte Brontë
Finished 3/5/13! (review here)
What a maddening ending! Quite frankly, the Brontës frustrate me.
15. The Secret Garden* by Frances Hodgson Burnett
A childhood favorite; mysterious and lovely.
16. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A shocking surprise- I was not expecting to like it as much as a did. A depressing book, but gorgeously written.
17. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
I was very familiar with this story already (who isn't?) but this was my first time reading it unabridged. Quite frankly, Tom could do with a good spanking.
18. The Importance of Being Earnest* by Oscar Wilde
Another favorite play. It's silly and ridiculous: go read it.
19. The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
Not nearly as exciting as I was expecting. Really very dry; other versions are probably better.
20. A Little Princess* by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Finished 6/5/13! (review here)
Another childhood favorite; I think I like it even better than The Secret Garden.
21. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Finished 7/22/13! (review here)
A surprise favorite, but probably not a candidate for re-reads due to its length.
22. Eldorado by Baroness Orczy
Actually not my favorite of the Scarlet Pimpernel books (go ahead, gasp!) but enjoyable nonetheless.
23. Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
I still think he should have ended up with Rebecca....
24. As You Like It by William Shakespeare
The bard is famous for a reason. This is a good example why.
25. Bleak House by Charles Dickens
Finished 9/9/13! (review here)
A solid offering from Mr. Dickens.
26. King Lear by Willian Shakespeare
Not my favorite, but then I'm more into comedies than tragedies. And also I wanted to smack the king.
27. Mistress Pat by L.M. Montgomery
Not a huge fan; rather boring, and the author has written much better books.
28. Lorna Doone by R.D. Blackmoore
Kind of a disappointment. Everyone seemed to love Lorna because she was pretty. I found her a little annoying.
29. The Professor by Charlotte Brontë
Well, it's the one book by a Brontë that I wasn't tempted to throw across the room...
30. King Solomon’s Mines by H. Rider Haggard
Picked up near the end, but it was more of a "guy" book and I had a hard time getting into it.
31. Treasure Island* by Robert Louis Stevenson
Liked it much better the second time around.
32. Magic For Marigold by L.M. Montgomery
meh. One of my least favorites by Montgomery.
33. The Hidden Hand by E.D.E.N. Southworth
Finished 2/9/14! (review here)
Pretty surprisingly fabulous. Will probably re-read sometime.
34. My Antonia by Willa Cather
Am I the only one who didn't like this book? It rubbed me the wrong way; I either found it boring, annoying, or weird.
35. The Three Musketeers* by Alexandre Dumas
Yeah. Kind of forgot that this one doesn't always have the best morals. And why is everybody so hotheaded???
36. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
Finished 4/07/14! (review here)
If I hadn't decided to treat this book like someone was telling me a ghost story, I would have thrown it across the room long before I finished it.
37. Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
Finished 5/09/14! (review here)
Another favorite Dickens book! Makes me want to watch the miniseries again.
38. The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
More Sir Percy is always a good thing.
39. I Will Repay by Baroness Orczy
Even if Sir Percy wasn't a main character, this is actually one of my favorites in the series.
40. The Mysteries of Udolpho by Anne Radcliffe
Finished 6/12/14! (review here)
Extremely melodramatic and outrageously long, but somehow rather satisfying.
41. The Old Man in the Corner by Baroness Orczy
A great collection of detective stories; enjoyable and reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes.
42. The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
A little odd, but kind of fun all the same. Holmes would probably roll his eyes, but...
43. The Art of War by Sun Tzu
Very much a fan. I need to buy a copy!
44. Captain Blood by Rafael Sabatini
I think I need a hard copy of this one, too.
45. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Finished 8/22/14! (review here)
*folds arms* Did not like. At all. Everybody in it made me mad.
46. Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope
Didn't get into it as much as I was hoping, but I did enjoy it.
47. Inferno by Dante Alighieri
Finished 9/30/14! (review here)
Ah. Written back in the good old days when you could write self-insert fanfiction about seeing all of your political enemies in hell and have it become a piece of classic literature. Literally.
48. Nicholas Nickleby
Finished 11/10/14! (review here)
It had its good parts, but overall I just found it 'okay.'
49. A Room With a View by E.M. Forster
Parts of it were amusing, but for some reason it kind of annoyed me, too.
50. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
The bits about the families I found somewhat interesting; the philosophical ramblings, not so much.
* denotes a book that was a re-read
Don't worry! Even though I've finished the classics club, I'll still continue reading - and blogging about - the classics. I have quite a list of others I'd like to read, although I'm not really committing to a reading goal right now. At the moment, I'm just going to bask in the glory of finishing this list :)
