Thanks! :) This is all the stuff I already have on my Kindle so I figured I'd better get started organizing them :D

I'm halfway through the Monster Collection. I started with Frankenstein and am making my way through Dracula now. I'm saving Jekyll for last because it's read by the wonderful Richard Armitage. I figured since I still have that to look forward to, might as well use it for the challenge :D

Andrea | 127 comments Hey guys!

I would love some recommendations for "North American Classic" and "Australia etc" classic.

I'd be really glad if you could help me out 😊


message 9: by Rosemarie (new)

Rosemarie | 1556 comments For Australia, I have read My Brilliant Career by Miles Franklin, which was very entertaining, Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay, for which I have mixed impressions, and The Fortunes Of Richard Mahoney by Henry Handel Richardson.
I enjoyed the last book, but it is much longer than the other two.

What type of genres do you enjoy reading? I have a lot more suggestions for North America.

Thank you so much! I'll look into those!

I'll read anything, really 😁 I'm currently reading classics and m/m romances at the same time, so. Whatever I'm in the mood for. I'm not the biggest fan of non-fiction or biographies, but other than that...


message 11: by Rosemarie (new)

Rosemarie | 1556 comments I have lately discovered just how much I like the writing of two American authors-John Steinbeck and Ray Bradbury, so I recommend them highly.


message 12: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 127 comments THANK YOU :) That means I now have everything all planned out! Yay.

Oh wait... Just saw, I'm missing an "African Classic". Any ideas? :D:D:D


message 13: by Rosemarie (new)

Rosemarie | 1556 comments I need an African classic too.

That's a list of books set there.

I didn't know Heart of Darkness was set in Africa. I've been meaning to read that anyway. 🤔😁
