TOP 5: CLASSICS I WANT TO READ III

As I've made a goal to read at least a dozen classics this year, I thought I would make a list of five I would like to get to soon.

1984 by George Orwell


The classic and essential dystopian book that I have yet to read. I just need to locate my copy of this, and I will read it.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov


We're all familiar with this story, but I want to read it for myself. Sometimes literature is supposed to make us uncomfortable and I think this does that.

Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf


I read The Lighthouse last year and found I had mixed feelings about it, but I definitely want to try another one of her books. I've heard good things about this.

The Trial by Franz Kafka


After the highest recommendations from a colleague at work, I want to try some Kafka!

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank


A book I cannot believe I haven't read, this has been recommended to me over and over, so I really want to get to this soon.

What classics do you want to read soon?

  1. Inferno by Dante. I'm just curious about it! Also I want to finish reading all Sherlock Holmes books this year, because I read it last year and fell in love immediately!

    1. I have actually read Inferno! For me, it was quite difficult to get through and there were a lot of references I didn't get, but it's a fun book to have read!

  2. Definitely Frankenstein and the Sherlock Holmes books: I can't believe I haven't read either of these classics yet!

    1. Frankenstein is sooo good! And Sherlock Holmes is amazing, though I've only read the first two :)

  3. I read 1984 in 2015 and it blew me away. It really makes you think. Also, although I can't remember much about Anne Frank's diary, I really enjoyed that, too. Happy reading! ❤
