Classics On My TBR List

Since reading has been a pretty big part of my goals this year, I thought that along with all the books that are sitting on my Kindle waiting to be read, I should also share with you guys books that are considered "classics" that I've just always put off reading for some reason or other. I'm actually pretty proud of the list of classics I already have read which I think is why it annoys me that I haven't prioritized making these particular books be on that "read" list. Hopefully with my transparency, it will give me the motivation I need to get these books out of my "To Be Read" list.

  • Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen: It's killing me that I haven't read this book because I LOVE Jane Austen and I've read all of her other books. I'm hoping to get this last one read by the end of this year so that I can finally say "I've read all of Jane Austen's novels" and not have to add "...except one."
  • Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte: I feel like Anne is the most underrated of the Bronte sisters and I feel bad I haven't read anything by her at all. Agnes Grey has been on my TBR list since 2012 so I think this one is just dying to be read this year.
  • Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes: This is one of those books people always hear about but few ever read. I don't want to be the majority in this case - I want to have read this!
  • Les Miserables by Victor Hugo: I'm constantly having to remind myself that just because I'm familiar with the musical does not mean that I've read the book. It's not going to be the same, obviously, and I need to quit beating around the bush and just read it already.
What are some of the classics on your TBR list?

  2. I haven't read any of these! I really want to read The House of Mirth this year and I'd like to re-read Catcher in the Rye.

  3. I've always wanted to read Les Mis as well! It just seems like such a feat to accomplish, but hopefully someday I'll do it. Best of luck to you!
