Top Ten Tuesday!

This week's TTT is about books that have been on your TBR the longest. Since I've been participating in Down the TBR Hole, I think that base has already been covered. I'm instead going to borrow another blogger's take on this prompt:

Top Ten Classics Eternally on My TBR List

1. Dracula by Bram Stoker
2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
3. The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
4. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
5. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

6. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
7. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
8. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
9. Candide by Voltaire
10. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Have you read any of these? What classics are on your list?

  1. I hope you don't feel bad about this. When I started blogging, I felt guilty for never reading the classics. But now I realize you should only be reading what makes you happy.

    The only one on your list I've actually read is Great Gatsby and it's my favorite because of the writing, but it's definitely not a book for everybody because the characters are mostly shallow and terrible, but I don't think I've ever found a writer who writes like F. Scott.

    1. I used to love reading classics, but maybe I was just trying to seem pretentious as a teenager, haha.

      I genuinely love gothic horrors, but I've exhausted a lot of that genre. Now, whenever I pick up a classic, I do enjoy it, but it takes me as long to read as 3 other books. I guess I just have to find the right balance.

  2. Don't feel bad I've only read The Great Gatsby on this list because I was forced to in school! I do own Catch 22 and Brave New World but sadly haven't made them a priority
