Top Ten Classics I Want To Read

toptentuesday

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:

58696 32261

David CopperfieldCharles Dickens–  I do like reading Charles Dickens, but this one is has escaped me many times.

Tess Of The D’UrbervillesThomas Hardy– My sister really likes this book. I’m intrigued…

31122 10956

I Capture The CastleDodie Smith– I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this book. I need to read it!

The Virgin SuicidesJeffrey Eugenides– This book is another one I’ve heard many things about, but I’m yet to read.

5797 5470

Vanity FairWilliam 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?

1984George Orwell– I have been meaning to read this book for such a long time now.

5129 890

Brave New WorldAldous 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 MenJohn Steinbeck– I remember another class at school reading this and wishing it was my class! Hopefully, I can read this book soon.

61846336454

Wuthering HeightsEmily Bronte– I know a lot of people love this book, so I’m slightly intimidated to read it.

A Streetcar Named DesireTennessee Williams – My sister absolutely adores this book. It makes me want to read it!
