The end-of-year-excitement for book blogger started when bloggers begin to post their reading challenges or reading groups of the next year. Funny it is that you were super-excited when planning the reading, but felt under-pressured while executing the plan. Well, at least, for me.
For 2017, actually I have planned to “read with the flow”, opening unlimited reading choices according to my mood. But…. this one is too tempting to be ignored:
The Classic Book-a-Month Club 2017 (#CBAM2017) hosted by Adam
I will only join in about 4 or 5 months of it:
The Three Theban Plays by Sophocles
I have read Oedipus the King about 5 years ago; and loved it. Maybe now is the perfect time to revisit it in English version (I read Indonesian translation back then).
The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
This is one of my most favorite books. Would love to rereading it once again (my last reading was in 2014).
Paradise Lost by John Milton
I might or might not pick this. I’m just curious. And I have been itching to read plays and poems again, so…. just maybe…
Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather
This would be my first Cather. But the theme is interesting, and it’s always exciting to read from an author for the first time.
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Just because the book has been in my TBR for too long; time to tackle it!
Other than that, I have been longing to reread The Great Gatsby and The Iliad! And maybe one or two Shakespeare.
What about you, what classics are you excited to read or reread next year?
