The Classics Club Project

I love classics, actually. Since my childhood fairy tales were classics. Though, I couldn’t manage to read some that I’m willing to. And then I found this awesome project hosted by Jillian.

Each time I finished a book, I’ll link the review on this post (you can see the bolded titles). I’ll write in Indonesian language, but still I’ll give some words in English to let international readers know my thoughts (mostly at last words). When I finish this project, I will buy a classic book that is 5-star-rated to me and give it to someone that close to me at that time.

  1. Two thumbs up, Busyra! Jadi gak kesepian lagi karena cuma aku & Melisa yg ikutan. Sama kamu, wakil dari Indonesia ada 3, yayyy!
    Untuk yg Fitzgerald, aku malah pengen baca yg Tender is the Night. Yg lain aku belum sempat browse sih. Memang liat2 list orang lain gini bikin list-ku jadi suka berubah2 deh..

  2. Eh, kita sama2 paling banyak bakalnya baca Charles Dickens! *toss*
    Dan nanti baca Gone with the Wind bareng2 yuk! Rada ngeri sama tebelnya, butuh temen nih kayaknya…

    • iya sih, Dickens tu kesannya ga terlalu berat walaupun muatannya tetep berat. Yg lain2 banyak yg baru pertama nyoba, jadi ga berani banyak2.. rencana kapan Gone With The Wind-nya? aku kayanya masih agak lama, soalnya blm punya bukunya, ngabisin yg ada dulu. Kecuali tiba2 ada yg ngasi, hahaha…

      Fitzgerald kebetulan itu yg udah punya e-book-nya, kecuali The Great Gatsby kayanya masih berlaku copyright-nya.

  3. Welcome to the club😀
    Asyiiik, seneng yang ikut CCP dari Indonesia nambah satu org lagi…
    List mu lumayan bervariasi juga, mari semangat baca klasik! \^_^/

  4. It’s so exciting to be a member of the Classics Club and to have you writing in Indonesian language. I agree that your comments in English would be helpful to other bloggers like me who are English speakers. I like the mutl- cultural mix of the members of this Club (I’m an African), though.

    Bzee, you and I have some books in common, like Dracula, Anna Karenina, King Solomon’s Mines, Alan Quatermain, Pride and Prejudice and Silas Marner, to name a few. Looking forward to reading your reivew on these.

  5. You chose a wonderful variety of titles. I am reading The Brothers Karamazov now and enjoying it so far. Happy Reading!
