Top Ten Classics I Can't Believe I Haven't Read

Top Ten Classics I Should Probably Read
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I'm not one to read the classics.  They tend to be long, overly descriptive, and a wee bit dry.  I spent several really long years reading for a purpose (college tend to suck you dry), so when I read, I don't want to really have to work at it.  So goes the age old discussion about why you read.

But there are some books that I'm ashamed I haven't tackled yet.  That maybe I really should give a whirl.  A few I'm going to read this year (fingers crossed)...others I hope I will get to eventually.  So here goes, the top ten classics I can't believe I haven't read and plan on remedying sometime in the not too distant future.

1) The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

2) Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

3) Crime and Punishment by Feodor Dostoevski

4) Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

5) The Wonderful Wizard of Oz L. Frank Baum

6) Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

7) Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

8) Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

9) Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe

10) Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes

  1. Crime and Punishment....so slow. I wanted them to kill me to put me out of my misery.
    I want to read Rebecca. Someday soon.

    1. I've got Crime and Punishment, Rebecca, and Three Musketeers on this year's list. But I'm not holding my breath :)

  2. I recently read Rebecca myself and loved it. It's perfect for a cold night wrapped up in a blanket with some hot cocoa.
