Six in Six - 2018 Edition

From Margaret at Books please I found this one-time-a-year challenge hosted by The Book Jotter. The idea is to look through what you have read in the first sex months of the years and share 6 books in 6 categories. For the categories go to the link above. List your books and post some time in July. The images are from the category of my favourite covers, in no specific order.

Six classics I have read

The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James
A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
Candide by Voltaire
Lancelot by Chrétien de Troyes
The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Six new authors to me

Marie Benedict (The Other Einstein)
Michel Bussi (After the Crash)
Elizabeth Strout (My Name is Lucy Barton)
Stephen Fry (Mythos)
Diane Setterfield (The Thirteenth Tale)
Anna-Karin Palm (Målarens döttrar)

Six blogging events I enjoyed
