The #ClassicsCommunity2020 tag is created by Lucy The Reader. She’s a YouTube who reads mostly classics and wanted to bring all the classics readers together. She also want it to make it easier for non classics to find out about the ones that are easy to read, so for beginners and to make it accessible for everyone. The #ClassicsCommunity2020 tag is a tag that everyone uses, so we can find each other more easily. Each year we change te tag to the current year, so we stay up to date. You watch her video announcement here. Anyways, these are alle the classics I’m hoping to read in 2020.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Jane Eyre is one of my favorite classics, but I haven’t reread it since 2015. I’ve never even read this edition. It’s on of those classics that everyone loves, so if you haven’t read it yet I highly recommend you to do so.
Another Country by James Baldwin
I’m already planning on reading this one, as mentioned in the “Previous Books I’ve Owned The Longest” post. I’ve owned it since 2014 so If I don’t read it by the end of the year I have to get rid of it. I really don’t want to get rid of it, so that might give me extra motivation to read it.
Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell
Again, I’m already planning on reading this one, as mentioned in the “Previous Books I’ve Owned The Longest” post. I’ve also owned it since 2014, so it has the same rule as Another Country.
Way of Seeing by John Berger
Way of Seeing is a book that I’m really interested in, because it’s about how we see art and things in general. I’m now in my last year of studying Media Design, so I’m all day surrounded by design/art.
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh by Robert C.O. Brien
I love reading children’s classics and in 2019 I’ve watched the movie of Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh. Loved that one as well, but I haven’t read the classic before I watched it. Which is something I usually do, but I had no idea it was based on a book! So I can’t wait to read it.
Kim by Rudyard Kipling
And again, one that I’ve also mentioned in “Previous Books I’ve Owned The Longest” post. I’ve read and loved The Jungle Book by him and I think I will love this one as well. And it’s really short so I have no reason not to read it.
Anne of Windy Willows and Anne’s House of Dreams by L.M. Montgomery
These are the continuation of the Anne of Green Gables series (books four and five). I’ve read up until the third book and I’m really loving it, so I really think I’m going to get to these in 2020.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence
This one is besides Jane Eyre also one of my favorite classics. I read it in 2018 in a different edition, but this year I really want to reread in this edition (I want to reread it anyways though).
I really think I can get to them all, because none of them are that big. Only Jane Eyre, but I know that’ll be a quick read.
