This was a summer-specific prompt last year, so I'll be saving it for my summer reading challenges starting sometime in May.

I would define this as a book that is generally considered a classic but somehow doesn't pop up constantly on lists of classics. I'll be reading The Conjure Woman and Other Conjure Tales. If there's a genre to which you're partial, take a look at some of its early authors who have been overshadowed by the big names of the genre's heyday.

I did start reading The Conjure Woman, but it's really slow going because of the heavy use of dialect. I ended up finishing My Cousin Rachel first. I think I like it better than Rebecca.
