Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
This week it’s all about Classics. Now I haven’t read many classics, so instead of picking my Top Ten, I picked the ten that I most want to read. Hopefully I will get round to them this summer!
The Lord of the Rings (J.R.R.Tolkien) – I started this one last summer but lost my place somewhere along the way and never got back round to it. I absolutely loved the films and I would love to immerse myself in this amazing fantasy world from Tolkien’s mind.
The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S.Lewis) – Another one I started but didn’t finish. I am a massive fan of Fantasy worlds and Narnia is one of the best. Really want to finish this one soon!
The Hobbit (J.R.R.Tolkien) – Well, you can’t read TLOTR and not read The Hobbit!
1984 (George Orwell) – It’s one of those books that everyone is always talking about and I’m always so embarrassed that I haven’t read it that I just nod along with the conversation hoping no body asks me anything specific!
The Great Gatsby (F.Scott Fitzgerald) – Before seeing the film adaptation (featuring Leo DiCaprio) I had never had much interest in reading the Great Gatsby, but that was mostly because I had never taken the time to actually find out what it was about. But since being introduced to the story by way of the film, I would love to experience it how it was originally written.
Frankenstein (Mary Shelley) – Another one I’m always embarrassed to admit I haven’t read.
Les Miserables (Victor Hugo) – The story is amazing, so why haven’t I read it already?!?!?!
Dracula (Bram Stoker) – I have always wanted to know the story behind the worlds most famous vampire.
Pride & Prejudice (Jane Austin) – Yes, I know. Why have I not read this book yet?! I did start to, like a year ago, I just haven’t reached the ending yet.
Lord of the Flies (William Golding) – Started it in college and then sadly lost the book. I should really finish it!
What’s on your Classics TBR?
