Please link your reviews for your Classic with Single-Word Title here.  This is only for the Classic with a Single-Word Title category. Examples include Emma, Germinal, Middlemarch, Kidnapped!, etc. (Titles with articles such as "a," "an," and "the," do not count.)

If you do not have a blog, or somewhere public on the internet where you post book reviews, please write your mini-review/thoughts in the comments section.  If you like, you can include the name of your blog and/or the title of the book in your link, like this: "Karen K. @ Books and Chocolate (Candide)."


  1. Unfortunately, I wasn't too thrilled with my choice for this category. Ramona was too much romance for me.

  2. Mother by Norris was a bit to saccharine and I like saccharine! ;) However, much of it had to do with the time period it was written in and the authors point of view on life. Overall, it was a nice look at the influence mothers have on their children. Amy @ HearthRidgeReflections

  3. I just finished reading Macbeth by William Shakespeare. I thoroughly enjoyed this play and was completely drawn into the tragedy and heartache of each of the characters. Loved it!

  4. I chose Middlemarch and was surprised in more than one way with it! First its length, and then how much I loved it.

    1. One of my top 5 books of all time--I've read it at least 5 times and love it more than ever.

  5. Celestina is quite a book, 519 years old and still going strong. I liked this modern translation a lot, but it's really a book you read for its historical value. Called the first European novel.

  6. I read Candide for this and thought it was great. Surprisingly funny and fast-paced.
