Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is either Top Ten Favourite Classics or Top Ten Classics I Want To Read. I had to pick the top ten classics I want to read, as I am AWFUL at reading classics. I don’t know what it is about them, I just haven’t read as many as I feel like I should have done.
Some are more modern classics than others, but here is my selection in no particular order:
David Copperfield– Charles Dickens– I do like reading Charles Dickens, but this one is has escaped me many times.
Tess Of The D’Urbervilles– Thomas Hardy– My sister really likes this book. I’m intrigued…
I Capture The Castle– Dodie Smith– I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this book. I need to read it!
The Virgin Suicides– Jeffrey Eugenides– This book is another one I’ve heard many things about, but I’m yet to read.
Vanity Fair– William Makepeace Thackeray– I’m not sure if I’ll ever get around to this book, as the size of it really puts me off. But maybe I can be persuaded to read it?
1984– George Orwell– I have been meaning to read this book for such a long time now.
Brave New World– Aldous Huxley– Another book that I’ve been meaning to read for ages (there are just too many books 😉 ). I really hope to get to this at some point.
Of Mice and Men– John Steinbeck– I remember another class at school reading this and wishing it was my class! Hopefully, I can read this book soon.
Wuthering Heights– Emily Bronte– I know a lot of people love this book, so I’m slightly intimidated to read it.
A Streetcar Named Desire– Tennessee Williams – My sister absolutely adores this book. It makes me want to read it!
Have you read any of these classics? Which would you recommend? Which would you stay away from? Please feel free to leave a link to your Top Ten post and I’ll come and check it out!
