    I've read some of the hound of the baskervilles and some of great expectations and they've given me confidence that English isn't my subject because I just can't finish the books.

    It seems that you are also reading French classics - in French language? Have also a French classic novel at home (the count of Montechristo written by Duma), but not in original language.

    Are the first named classics written by Tolstoi by any chance? *

    Tess of the D'Urbervilles
    The Great Gatsby
    To Kill A Mockingbird
    A Midsummer Night's Dream
    The Secret Garden
    A Little Princess
    Breakfast at Tiffany's!! (Can't believe I forgot that, one of my most faves)

    I began to read Wuthering Heights for A2 Lit but it was unbearable to continue reading and I dropped Lit anyway.

    I have Great Expectations, War and Peace and Anna Karenina and I need to start reading them soon

    In terms of me, it is vice versa. I am reading both translated and original language, German and English to be exact. I guess I would never read in another languages.*

    I am just doing that to hold my level. It is easier by reading English-speaking books. And if there are good classics even better. *
