Finally! I have completed the challenge and I can write the Wrap-Up Post for Back to the Classics Challenge 2012 hosted by Sarah Reads Too Much. I enjoyed taking part of this challenge because Sarah divided it into categories which allowed us to explore between genres and eras. Below are all the reviews I have written for the challenge, starting from the very first review I wrote and ends in the last. (The early posts are written fully in Bahasa Indonesia, I hope that won’t be a problem).
- Reread a classic of your choice – Bleak House by Charles Dickens [review was posted on February 16, 2012]
- Any 19th Century Classic – The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo [review was posted on February 26, 2012]
- Classic Mystery/Horror/Crime Fiction – And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie [review was posted on March 5, 2012]
