“Our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone - has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash - together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” (from Youth: A Narrative) #josephconrad #litsyclassics #holidayreads
Thank you @BookwormM - it arrived safely this morning 😊. Really not sure how I‘ll get on with this one, but looking forward to giving it a try - and it‘s 112 pages short, which always helps 👍
I‘m still going on last year‘s #litsyclassics challenge.
I am actually quite satisfied with how I did overall with my year-long reading challenges! I came close with #LitsyAtoZ, but put aside the last few to finish up #pop18.
#LitsyClassics went to the wayside, but I think I did read at least 6. Apparently, alphabet challenges are not my thing. 🤷🏻♀️🥳
As 2018 moves into 2019 across the litsy world, I'll wish all my litsy friends and bookworms a happy new year and lots of good books and reading time. Here are my 26 books from the #litsyclassics challenge which was one of the highlights of my reading year.
As midnight passes i will raise a glass to all in our reading community.
Since the year is almost done in my area, I want to thank all the lovely Littens, who participated this year's challenge. #litsyclassics was so much fun for me and I am happy you liked it. 😍💕
Hope you had great reading experience and a lovely year. 🤩💕
#LitsyClassics bk 26 Z
Ta dah i finished and on a highlight of my reading year. Having been in the school chess team many moons ago i loved the story which encompasses more than just a game as it pits two very different men with different stories against each other.
Thanks to @Sarah83 for encouraging this challenge - I'll post a pic of all 26 tomorrow with hopefully my new challenge.

And so my #litsyclassics is concluded. I‘ve enjoyed most of them, some of my five star reads have been from the list, and it has been fun doing this challenge. Thanks to my buddy readers for the comradeship and also @Sarah83 for hosting this.
That‘s a wrap! I finished the tagged book this morning, completing #litsyclassics. I started the year with Jane Eyre, and that remains my favorite of the bunch. Heart of Darkness ranks lowest.
Some other classics read this year that didn‘t make the list: Frankenstein, A Clockwork Orange, The Picture of Dorian Gray, A Wrinkle in Time, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and The Great Gatsby.
