Top Ten Classics I want to read…

I rarely read Classics. I read quite a few during my English Literature course a few years ago with The Open University. I think because I had to study and analyse them so much it took the enjoyment out of them for me. I am sure that if I read them purely for pleasure I would enjoy them a lot more.

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
1984 by George Orwell
Animal Farm by George Orwell
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
 Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Have you read any of these? I am hoping to get to some of these in 2015. Any that I should get to immediately?

Happy Reading!

  1. I loved REBECCA. Read it with my mystery group last fall. Very gothic. The movie is good too and an Alfred Hitchcock classic. 🙂

  2. I need to read a couple of these books so bad!!! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday if you wanna check it out 🙂 http://bookbabble.weebly.com/blog/top-ten-tuesday1
