Hey y’all! Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish question idea that was originally created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, from way back in June 2010! Since January 2018, Top Ten Tuesday has been hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Thanks for taking it over! The idea is to make a list of ten books or bookish things on different topics each week. Check out her site for details on how to join and what the upcoming prompts are. 😊
This week’s prompt is actually “21st century books you think will become classics” but I have no idea where to go with that one so I made a list of ten classic books I’ve never read! Being a voracious reader and an English major, this is kind of an exclusive list for these books. Which maybe means there’s a reason I haven’t tackled these ones. 😅
My ten classic books I’ve never read!
So why haven’t I read these books before?
A Tale of Two Cities: I tried Oliver Twist and was bored to tears. Sorry, Dickens.
Frankenstein: actually, kind of interested in this one for the drama of the story behind it’s writing
The Count of Monte Cristo: just purchased a copy! Holly loved it, and got me interested
Wuthering Heights: sounds dreary and Bella loved it
The Grapes of Wrath: seems as dry as the dust bowl itself
Dracula: probably not as cool as I would want it to be
Don Quixote: seems super weird with the dude talking to windmills and such
Little Women: I might actually read this one, or at least some retellings
The Metamorphosis: if Don Quixote is too weird for me, what even is this
The Little Prince: never came up in my childhood, but I see it referenced often in K dramas & webtoons
