Top Ten Tuesday – Classics I Want To Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and it is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Backlist Books I Want To Read, but  I changed it to Classics I Want to Read. Here’s my list:

1. Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray


2. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley


3. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen


4. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy


5. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy


6. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë


7. Shirley by Charlotte Brontë


8. Silas Marner by George Eliot


9. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens


10. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

  1. After watching Vanity Fair I was completely put off from the book. I am rereading Dracula at the moment, I forgot how good it is. I don’t think I’ll read War and Peace. I couldn’t get into Agnes Grey so I’m not sure if I’ll read another book just yet by Anne Brontë. I live classics. Austen,Hardy and Charlotte Brontë are my favourites. I love Jane Eyre

  2. You have some great books on here. I find Serial Reader really helpful to break down the classics into daily chunks. I read War & Peace and Crime & Punishment that way. I love Frankenstein, Mansfield Park, the Tenant of Wildfell Hall, and A Tale of Two Cities, and I hope you do too. I still need to read Vanity Fair, Silas Marner, and Shirley on this list (I’m currently reading Villette so Shirley will be next!).

    1. I’m interested in the Russian ones but they’re sooooo long! I tried reading Frankenstein a few years ago and I couldn’t get into it. But I just read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein and I loved it, so I want to give it another try.

  3. I read Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy earlier this year and as more time passes I can honestly say I am liking it more and more the more I think about it. It has an almost timeless quality to it that can be relatable in some ways.
