Today’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the Broke and Bookish, is a freebie. I decided to use this opportunity to post the top ten classics I want to read. I made this list a couple weeks ago and now looking back I notice that I have two categories of classics I’m interested in, romances and politic/society. Here are the top ten classics on my to be read list:
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Lolita by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
It is no secret that I love reading romances and as classic romances I’ve been eyeing these novels for a while now. While Thomas Hardy is a classic romance novelist along the same lines of Jane Austen, I honestly had never heard of him until I read Fifty Shades of Grey and noticed that Anastasia, an English major, loves his novels. Now I don’t consider myself a particularly political person, I do have my opinions on many matters but I keep them to myself. I do have an interest in read The Prince and Utopia because they are supposed to be about the ideals. Utopia the ideal society and The Prince as the ideal royalty. I consider myself to be quite liberal and intrigued by socialism and have wanted to read the Communist Manifesto for a while now. 1984 has been on my to read list since I found out that it is practically one of the first dystopian novels.
