    I think I made a mistake when adding mine. It isn’t showing up yet, but I automatically clicked on what was there and it’s listed just as Lee@ Butterfly Blessings and that link is for The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie. Thanks. :o)

  2. I have just finished the first book for the challenge – Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte! Below is the link to my review at my blog, Looking Glass Reviews. 🙂

  3. Finally got around to writing my review for Tess of the D’Ubervilles on Goodreads. I should have another review to post soon!

  4. stilettostorytime

    Thanks to everyone who has participated so far! Remember any challenge participant that posts a classic review by March 25th will receive five extra entries into my Jane Eyre Movie Prize Pack! Happy Reading!

  5. Finished my first classic.

  6. I just added 3 or 4 reviews to the linky, but don’t see them. I may have messed up?!

    • stilettostorytime

      No not a problem Jaycie…for some reason I am having technical issues with this Linky…so I go back and update them every few days manually…the ones you added should show now! Thanks for the great reviews and can’t wait to read them! ~Courtney

  7. Lee Smith

    Forgot to add my review of “Age of Innocence” until just now. It hasn’t shown up yet, but it’s the middle of the night and I’m sure it will in time. :o)

  8. Greeting from Canada! awesome blog here my friend. I hope you keep writing because it’s nice to see refreshing styles such as yours

  9. Hi, there! I added #24 (A Little Princess) but it didn’t show up on this page. If you click to the review page linky, it is there. Ooops, I just noticed that I misspelled “Princess” as “Princes”. Can you fix that? thanks!

  10. stilettostorytime

    No Problem Darlene…should be fixed now! Happy Reading and thanks for the classic reviews!

  11. Just added two new links! School is finally out so maybe I will have more to add soon!

  12. Just read my first classic for the year! Madame Bovary, by Gustave Flaubert. Yay! I have piles of them on my shelves that I have never read, so this is a perfect excuse!

  13. Tressa

    Just got my first one linked – I’m a little behind, but a new baby will do that to you. 😉

    • stilettostorytime

      Tressa- Congrats on the new addition…I’m surprised you’ve gotten any reading done! I have been there..thanks for the review and Happy Reading!

  14. Jessica's Musings

    Ugh… so behind. Just posted book 3. “Notes from Underground” by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

  15. Just added my review for Evelina by Frances Burney, a re-read but a review of the audiobook version I just had the pleasure of listening to.

  16. My blog includes reviews of The Sound and the Fury, Paradise Lost, North and South, Pride and Prejudice and Daniel Deronda.

  17. I just added my Goodreads review of The Autobiography of Mark Twain…which I figured could be categorized as an ‘instant classic’

  18. Glad you agree 🙂 (soooooo good btw)

    • stilettostorytime

      I have it on my Nook but have yet to dive in! Glad you enjoyed it…might move it up on TBR some. =)

  19. Jessica's Musings

    Just finished “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck. Not my first time reading it, but I haven’t read it in years. Such a great story.

  20. Jessica's Musings

    Three more posted:
    A Wrinkle In Time
    Oliver Twist
    To KIll a Mockingbird

  21. Jessica
