Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week was a freeby, and since I decided I want to read some more classics in the future, I decided to go with the top 10 ones that I should probably have read already!
1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I did start this. Like 4 years ago. When my English wasn’t nearly good enough, so I gave up after about 20 pages. I have all of Jane Austen’s novels on my shelf though, so I will be getting to that soon!
2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
We read excerpts of this one in English class and I LOVED them, so I don’t think it’ll be too long before I pick this one up either. I have the ebook for this one as well.
3. Frankenstein by Mary Shelly
After reading and loving Dracula I feel like I should definitely get to this one soon. Hooray for gothic horror!
4. The Secret History by Donna Tartt
This, and also The Goldfinch, but I’ve heard that Secret History is better, so I’m probably a bit more excited for that.
5. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
I read the first two books in the series, it’s definitely time to read the other five!
6. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Again, we read some stuff by Dickens in English class (mainly excerpts from Hard Times), and it made me really fall in love with his writing style. I have this book on my kindle and I’m sure I’ll get to it at some point in the winter maybe?
7. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
I’m a huge fan of the film, and I’ve had the ebook for years, but it’s just so huge and intimidating D: Maybe I’ll start it before the end of the year. Probably not.
8. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Do I even need to explain this one? The LOTR series is a bit too intimidating for me, but you’d think I could manage The Hobbit, especially since it’s already on my shelf! Well, I haven’t yet…
9. anything by Margaret Atwood
I heard she is amazing, so I wanna try her out. Have absolutely no clue where to start though, haha
10. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Pretty self-explanatory yet again – and I also own a copy of this book. Why havan’t I read it yet? God knows…
Have you read any of these and did you like them? Tell me about the classics you should probably have read already!
