Over the years Classic literature has transformed from something that felt really rather daunting and out of reach to something that I actively enjoy engaging with, and this is largely down to mandatory explorations of such texts at school. In my love for deep analysis I found a real love for the types of literature I was studying, and thus my love for classics was born! Despite loving this (almost) genre so much my TBR pile where classics are concerned remains huge, and so I’ve decided to compile a more manageable and realistic Classics TBR which I thought would be fun to share!
I would love to know if we have any books in common (be it that you, like me, wish to read them or that you’ve already read them), and hope that this post perhaps inspires you to read something that wasn’t previously on your TBR!
So without further ado, lets begin!
Modern Classics are a particular favorite of mine, and so I thought it right that this is the list I should begin with! Some of the novels mentioned are probably considered modern classics in a very loose sense, and this list certainly does not consist only of penguin modern classics! But they are books that I wish to read all the same, and include some of those that I am most excited for!
The Modern Classics that I wish to read include:
My Classics TBR is absolutely huge, but for everyone’s sake I’ve decided to include only novels which I already own!
Classics that I wish to read include:
Sense and Sensibility, North and South, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Middlemarch, Great Expectations, Dracula, A Room of One’s Own, Jane Eyre, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, Wuthering Heights, Little Women, Hard Times and Paradise Lost.
There are a large number of plays that I wish to read, so much so that I’ve had to really narrow this list down considerably for it to be considered reasonable!
These plays include:
And that rounds up my realistic classics TBR! I really look forward to making my way through these books, and would love to know if we have any books in common!
