Classics are, without a doubt, some of my favourite books to read. I love delving into a book that tells me so much more than just its plot. Classic literature can reveal so much about how people used to live, history and how society treated people. Often, I find that Classics have incredibly memorable characters and fantastic storylines that never get boring!
Here’s a list of Classics that I plan to read (at some point) in 2019!
#1 Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
This remains the last Jane Austen book for me to read! I didn’t get round to reading it in November but I hope to definitely get to it in 2019.
#2 The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens is one of my favourite authors and I’d love to read more of his work!
#3 War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
This is a very, VERY big book but one that would I would love to tick off the list.
#4 Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
I’m not sure if I’ve ever actually read this book. I’ve seen the film (and loved it!) so many times.
#5 Middlemarch by George Eliot
I’ve heard such good things about this book and I’m very interested in reading more classic female authors.
#6 Villette by Charlotte Brontë
#7 Howards End by E.M Forster
I really enjoyed reading my first E.M Forster book this year (A Room with a View) so I’m definitely up for reading more!
#8 Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
I’ve seen the film adaptation of this starring Carey Mulligan and really enjoyed it!
#9 The Road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell
Another of my favourite authors!
#10 Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
This is an author that I’ve heard so much about but haven’t yet read any of their works.
Have you read any of these books? What’s your favourite Classic?
Thanks for reading!
