Classics Club

In the Classics Club, you select your own list of classics to read by a stated date. The following is my second list, which I originally posted on June 30, 2017, and I plan to finish it by June 29, 2021.

My First Classics Club List

My New List!

I can’t seem to bring myself to make a list of 100 books at a time for the Classics Club. I think it is more satisfying for me to finish shorter lists faster than to finish a long list more slowly.

15th Century

16th Century

  • The Prince by Machievelli (1532)
  • Edward II by Christopher Marlowe (1592)
  • Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare (1588-1593)

17th Century

  • Oroonoko by Aphra Behn (1688)
  • The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster (1612-13)

18th Century

19th Century

20th Century

    I love seeing them broken up by century. You’ve picked some great ones!

      Thanks! I can’t claim that was an original idea, however. I copied it from another Classics Club friend.

    Which ones are your “tried & true” favorites? I think you mentioned 6-8 of your classics you’ve read & re-read. Just curious to see what your favorites are. Your list looks great! You have a lor of really great books & even a few I haven’t heard much about yet. Keep us posted on how this goes!

      I love Victorian novels,so among others the Dickens books, Middlemarch, and the Hardy are retreads.

    Nice list! I see several favorites here (Rebecca! Robinson Crusoe!), and several that are also on my list. Welcome to the club! I’ve only been a member since early January, but it’s already been a lot of fun and a great way to meet new book-loving bloggers.

      Thanks so much! I’ll have to take a look at your list!
