Classic Reads Wish List

Happy Sunday everyone! Can you believe it's already February? Despite the tons of uni readings to sift through, recently I've been thinking about getting back to reading for fun. Yes, it has become so hectic that I have to make time for reading. Sad, isn't it? And I love reading, I think it's a requirement for any writer ; ) There is even a large stack of books on my shelf (I will read you Outlander!!) that are still in need of a good read. With hope, this year will see that stack diminish and have other books fill it's place. I'm a huge fan of classics: Mark Twain, William Shakespeare, Thomas Hardy, Fyodor Dostoevesky, Oscar Wilde, Harper Lee, Bram Stoker... I could go on. Yet, there are so many more classics that I would especially love to get to read. I thought in the spirit of sharing good future reads (never a bad idea, right?), I would post my list of all the books I want to check off. Let me know if you've read any of them : ) 1. War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy 2. All Quiet on the Western Front - Eric Remarquebookscovers350 3. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte 4. The Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis (I need to finish the last two stories in this one!) 5. Oliver Twist - Charles Dickens 6. The Three Musketeers - Alexander Dumas 7. Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy 8. The Inferno - Dante (I mentioned this great guy before!) 9. The Merchant of Venice - William Shakespeare 10. The Complete Collection of the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 11. Les Miserables - Victor Hugo 12. The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne What kinds of books make your list? Are there any you think I should add? xo Novellette

  1. Wuthering Heights should definitely be on that book list. it is an amazing read. I would also add The Taming of the Shrew, for a good Shakespearean chuckle, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Frankenstein ( the actual book is so different and better than any Hollywood version). And lastly, your e-book ” Altai”. I downloaded it last year and it is a terrific book. On that note, I have a cup of tea and a book just waiting to be read.
    Awesome post!

  2. I would love to read Oliver Twist! Why have I never thought of that before? I saw it as a play once and I really loved the story and I definitely think I should read the book now as well. Thank you so much for this post, it’s great! I have to go find a copy of Oliver Twist now….

    1. I figured if I was going to jump into reading more of Dickens, “Please sir, can I have some more,” would be a good place to start, haha! I hope you check it off your list soon too :)

  3. I agree with you about the “love of reading” and the need to escape into a good book. I suggest The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Light Between the Oceans and the Tigers in Red Weather. Thanks for your list.
    Good Post!
