Top Ten Classics I Want To Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is back to school so anything vaguely related to school and reading.

Classics are books that I want to read, if only to find out why they’re classics, but they can be quite intimidating. Recently I read All Quiet on the Western Front, which I really enjoyed, and it’s reinforced my want to read more classics.

  1. I’ve never heard of The Diary of the Provincial Lady, but I’ll have to check it out! I recently finished reading War and Peace and it was so much more enjoyable than I initially thought it would be.

    1. I’ve read a small part of it and it’s basically like those books which has a mother commenting on her life with her husband and children but it’s set in the 1930s. I’m finding it enjoyable so far!
      War and Peace has always been quite intimidating but I’ve seen people (and you’re one of them!) who have nothing but good things to say about it, so it’s definitely moved up my classics list.
