Hi there! Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is all about looking ahead to 2016 and what we will read then.
I took a little bit of a different spin off that topic and made a list of the classics I hope to read for The Classics Club in 2016. Enjoy!
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy // 2016 is the year! I have had this one on my list for a while, but have been totally intimidated by it. This coming year my brother-in-law and I are reading it! I think that will totally help me get through it.
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte // Anne is the last of the Bronte sisters for me to read. I am very excited about this book!
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank // This is definitely a newer classic as far as classics go. But I have never read it all the way through and I am really excited to experience it this coming year.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen // My last Austen novel to have read the 6 complete novels! I love the Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet movie adaptation so I look forward to reading the novel!
Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne // I recently bought this one at a darling bookstore back home. I have never read any Verne so this will be my first experience!
Heidi by Joanna Spryi // Another book I have not read but I do enjoy the movie. I have started it before but this year I hope to finish it!
Mere Christianity by CS Lewis // I absolutely love the Narnia books and found The Screwtape Letters to be fascinating. I have always wanted to read more Lewis. I am intrigued by this one.
Evelina by Fanny Burney // I hear Burney was one of Jane Austen’s inspirations. I heard about this book in graduate school and am excited to read it.
Little Men by Louisa May Alcott // I have a beautiful copy of this book given to me for Christmas last year. Excited to continue the beautiful story of Little Women (see my review here).
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens // Okay. 2016 is the year! I have started this novel so many times but I seriously haven’t finished it. I am determined to do it!
What classics are you reading this coming year?
Any books I should read in 2016 (classic or otherwise)?
