Back to the Classics Checkin

Karen at Books and Chocolate is hosting the Back to the Classics Challenge this year, and it's time for a check-in post!  I have finished SIX of the ELEVEN categories, and I have the movie of Slaughterhouse-Five ready to watch soon.  I'm still not sure what classic thriller I'll read--I already read a lot of mysteries but I want something a bit special.  Anyway, here you go:

  1. A 20th Century Classic -- If on a winter's night a traveler, by Italo Calvino
  2. A 19th Century Classic -- Mill on the Floss, by George Eliot.
  3. A Classic by a Woman Author
  4. A Classic in Translation    Dead Souls, by Nikolai Gogol.
  5. A Wartime Classic  August 1914, by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
  6. A Classic by an Author Who Is New To You Brideshead Revisited, by Evelyn Waugh
Optional Categories:
  • An American Classic -- 
  • A Classic Mystery, Suspense or Thriller -- 
  • A Historical Fiction Classic. 
  • A Classic That's Been Adapted Into a Movie or TV Series.   Slaughterhouse-Five, by Kurt Vonnegut.
  • Extra Fun Category:  Write a Review of the Movie or TV Series adapted from Optional Category #4.  
I'm going to take a break for the next week or so while I'm doing summer stuff with the kids.  Back soon!


  1. Classic mystery---something by Josephine Tey or Dorothy Sayers?
