50 lesser known classics in 5 years.

I have joined The Classic Club, which is a club about bloggers who pledge themselves to read and blog about 50 or more classics in the next 5 years. The books I haclassicsclubve choosen still fit in to the project of the books being lesser known and at least 60 years old. The books I am going to read are listed down below, those I have read and written a review for will have the hyperlink. I will be reading some of the books in Norwegian, but all the reviews will be in English 😉

Visit https://theclassicsclubblog.wordpress.com/ to read more about the club and to find other blogs writing reviews about classical books. Because you can never have too many classical books.


I created this blog because I wanted to promote books that weren’t as well known, and I still do. Therefore I will not write a blogpost if I don’t think the book is good. If I think a book is bad I will exchange it, so that by September 2020 I will have at least 50 reviews on this blog.

If you have any thoughts of which book/play I should do next, please let me know.
