#CatchUpOnClassics Announcement

 CatchUpOnClassicsHey friends! I have something so exciting to announce for you! in 2019, me and my dear friend Dani at Book Geeks Uncompromised are hosting six classic readalongs!

  1. I might actually join you for Sense & Sensibility!!! I’ve been wanting to read that for forever because I really liked Pride & Prejudice.. but I never find motivation to pick up a classic.
    And I love the way you set this up and that you’re also watching adaptations! I think it’s gonna motivate a lot of people to join you and read more classics this year ♥

      1. I’m pretty sure I have a couple of these on my kindle already but there might be some I have to try and get from my library or maybe I can find them on scribd. Yeah when I saw November’s pick I was like oh gosh lol.

      2. Me too!! I love buddy reading books and like I said I think it will make reading classics easier and more enjoyable. How do you plan on doing this. Are you going to have a place where everybody can chat about the book?

  2. I’m a pretty big classics reader so I’ve read all but one of these already. But I will definitely join you for A Study in Scarlet!! And I am so nervous and excited for you to read Wuthering Heights, I’m hoping so hard that you love it! ❤

  3. One of my goals this year was to read more classics, and I kind of failed, so this is the perfect opportunity! I’m going to try to read along as best as possible. 🙂
    Also, I’m very excited to read Sherlock Holmes! I actually have read A Study In Charlotte, and while I didn’t love it, it was a fun story to read!
    I can’t wait for this event to start!! ❤

  5. Love this! I’ve actually read all of these (three of them this year!), but I think I’m going to try and participate and reread at least A Study in Scarlett and Wuthering Heights. Maybe Anna Karenina, too.

    1. Yessss! I am honored, Stephanie! And even more excited now! And… I’m going to need all the friends and buddy reads in the world for Anna Karenina! But I’m hyped! Hahah! I hope you’re having happy reading! 💕xx

      1. I actually really liked Anna Karenina, so it might be fun to reread! And I’ve been meaning to revisit Wuthering Heights, because it’s been a while. So I’m definitely going to participate as much as I can. This looks so fun!

  6. I’m in – I’m always up for more classics. I’ve read A Study in Scarlet and Rebecca but not the others. So this will be fun! The new book the Winter by Lisa Gabriele was inspired by Rebecca if your looking for a follow up to read after Rebecca. That is is you love Rebecca. 🙂

    Thanks for all the planning and posting the schedule ahead of time. I got this bookmarked and I follow on instagram. Can’t wait for January!

  8. This is awesome! I’m interested in joining for A Study in Scarlet, Wuthering Heights, and Anna Karenina. But it really depends if I finish reading Frankenstein and We Have Always Lived in the Castle by then. I borrowed these from the library so I just can’t postpone them. 😂

  9. How exciting! I adore classics! I’m trying to read one classic a month next year, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to yet! Hahaha. I’m really crossing my fingers that you like Study in Scarlet and Wuthering Heights! ❤

  10. This is a great idea! I have Wuthering Heights so joining your readalong might actually convince me to read it! And I’ve always wanted to read Anna Karenina so might join in on that one too! Looking forward to it!
