My #2016ClassicsChallenge TBR!

Hello, readers! This is a very belated blog post (I was supposed to publish this a couple of days ago... whoops) but one I have been very excited about writing! Basically, I made a very hasty and impromptu decision to partake in the 2016 Classics Challenge! I have never  taken part in a reading challenge before, but I saw that a lot of my blogger friends were joining in so I thought, why not?! Besides, I love reading classics but I still have loads on my bookshelf that I haven't picked up yet, so I thought I would enjoy taking part.

The 2016 Classics Challenge is hosted by the wonderful Stacey from The Pretty Books- go check her out, she's awesome!

The aim is simple- to read one classic every month for a whole year! That's 12 books in total *ooer*. But I'm pretty sure I can do it. I will also be updating you on this blog, Delightful Book Reviews, and on my YouTube channel where I will be vlogging my experience :)

I have made a TBR especially for this challenge- I don't have all the books to hand right now as they are either in Manchester or Cornwall (my two other homes other than London!) However, I will be showing you all the books I will be reading at some point or other.
