Back to the Classics 2017: My Final 12

Well... I love classic literature. I try to dig a little deeper, branch out just a smidge more each year, dipping my toes in those beautiful masterpieces of amazing words.

In 2017 I finally banded up with like-minded peoples, and joined the Back to the Classics challenge, where I had to read 12 classics that fit into the appointed 12 categories. What excitement that was for me!

This is a look back at the 12 books I chose to read for the challenge.
So that's 3 entries into the yearly giveaway. Yay!
All titles are linked back to my reviews. Please, feel welcome to comment on any of them. I love chatting about old books.
