Classic TBR List

While organizing my bookshelf over the weekend I reacquainted myself with the classics that I own, most of which I haven’t read. It might be surprising considering that I have an English degree, but I haven’t read many classics and it’s something that I have wanted to change for awhile. So I thought I’d put together a Classic To-Be-Read List, with some of the classics that I own that I want to read the most.

  1. Little Men (and Jo’s Boys), by Louisa May Alcott. Reading Little Women definitely made me interested in the rest of Alcott’s works. I don’t have Jo’s Boys, but I have Little Men. I just pulled it off the shelf to read.
  2. Emma, Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen. I didn’t like Austen’s novels for the longest time, but once I read Northanger Abbey and then Persuasion I knew that I wanted to read more.
  3. The Beautiful and the Damned, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Well, all of his books, really. I’ve read The Great Gatsby, but that’s it.
  4. The Princess Bride, by William Goldman.
  5. The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, by Victor Hugo.
  6. The Phantom of the Opera, by Gaston Leroux
  7. Clarissa, by Samuel Richardson.
  8. The Metamorphosis, by Ovid. I once read a book called The Love-Artist, by Jane Alison, which is about Ovid, and ever since I’ve wanted to read this book.
  9. The Mysteries of Udolpho, by Ann Radcliffe. I’ve wanted to read this since I read Northanger Abbey. It’s bigger than I thought it would be, though!
  10. The Age of Innocence, by Edith Wharton. I’m really excited for this one, because Wharton wrote one of my favorite short stories.
  11. The Picture of Dorian Grey, by Oscar Wilde.

Are there any classics that you want to read?
