The question for January is thus:
What is the best book you’ve read so far for The Classics Club — and why? Be sure to link to the post where you discussed the book! (Or, if you prefer, what is your least favorite read so far for the club, and why?)If I answer the question as is it will be pretty boring as I've still only read three books from my list. Shocking, I know, but my favourite of the two is, of course, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte, which was so great that I wrote two posts about it. Soooo instead I will answer a question which will undoubtedly come up in coming months and I'll have to repeat myself. The book that I'm most looking forward to reading from my list.
I think it's probably between two (and one is kind of cheating). Firstly the fairytale buff in me is ridiculously excited for the mythical day when I will finally get my hand on a copy of Tales of Mother Goose by Charles Perrault, but I'm also really looking forward to sinking into a big re-read of the Swallows and Amazons series by Arthur Ransome. Bring on the summers of sailing away from adults and responsibility and eating sweets and climbing trees and planning strategic boat captureyness on each other all day. Oh yes.
