The Classics Club

The Classics Club is hosted by Jillian of A Room of One's Own. For me this challenge will run from May 2012 to May 2017 and I've put together a list of 60 books I'd like to read in that time period (an average of 12 per year) but the goal will be to finish at least 50 of them, for sure. As well as reading these books, I'd like to watch as many film adaptations of these books as I can find as well. Here are the books I've chosen for this challenge:
