Since I started blogging, I have found so many books that I’ve wanted to read (or need to read in certain cases), my time I would normally devote to classics has been eaten away! I’m slowly whittling down my TBR (to be read list) though. I think I have maybe 9 books left?!? Once that’s done, I’m going to be catching up on some classics! Here are the ones that are up first on my TBR.
1. Dune by Frank Herbert
Considered a classic in the sci-fi realm, it’s the world’s best selling science fiction novel. My husband read it and loved it, so our marriage is currently hinging on my reading this book soon (just kidding, sort of). I tried listening to the audiobook of it, but there were WAY too many new words/names, that I couldn’t understand WTF was going on. Definitely one I need to read first!
2. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
3. Cannery Row by John Steinback
This book takes place in one of my favorite places: the central coast of California, and more specifically, Monterey, CA (one of my favorite cities!). I have to read it!
4. The Once and Future King by T.H. White
Considered a fantasy classic, this book is a story inspired by the Arthurian legends! I have heard a million good things about it.
5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
There are so many children’s classics I haven’t read yet. I am slowly working my way through them.
6. Heidi by Johanna Spyri
7. Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
8. Le Morte d’ Arthur: King Arthur and the Legends of the Round Table by Thomas Malory
I started reading some of these, and they are seriously hilarious (not intentionally… but they’re so ridiculous that I couldn’t help but LOL). I can’t wait to read all of them!
What are some classics you’ve read lately? Or ones you want to read?
