#CatchUpOnClassics Announcement

Earlier this year, I had the ridiculously enormous pleasure of buddy reading a few classics with Melanie at Meltotheany and we had so much fun doing it that we are making it a thing for 2019 and anyone that wants to join us is welcome to! 

We have six books selected and dates planned out for them all so you can jump in on any one that floats your boat! Maybe you’ve been meaning to read it forever or maybe jumping into classics just seems like a daunting task that would be better with friends. I am so excited about this as it already means I will be crossing out six books on my Classics TBR that I have been wanting to read for forever and I hope you all join us!

ALSO! In addition to reading these books together, on the Sunday night after finishing each book, we are going to have a Movie Night! We picked out adaptations for all of the books so everyone can watch together and continue to chat about what we read and how that adaptation did at working the story onto the screen.
