Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Top Ten Classics I Want To Read
This is an interesting topic for me as although I have read quite a few so far in my life, there are even more classics I want to read than what I have already read! I really do need to read more classics and I intend to do so as soon as I can (once I get through my already towering TBR pile that is!)
1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald: I have always wanted to read this but have never found the time (yet).
2. Persuasion by Jane Austen: I have read most of Austen’s other works but have not yet read this – it is definitely one of the classics I want to read sooner rather than later.
3. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy: One of the classics I have wanted to read for years. I really enjoyed the film version.
4. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy: I have gotten halfway through this book twice! I have to finish it at some point.
5. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky: I am really intrigued by this book and it’s certainly one of the classics I want to read.
6. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas: I have always fancied reading this.
7. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde: I have always been a bit fascinated by Oscar Wilde so really want to read this.
8. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo: I have made a pact with myself to read this one day.
9. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne: This is a book I have heard many good things about so I am deeply curious about it.
10. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier: I actually cannot believe I haven’t read this already!
