As in my previous post where I told you about the 12 books I wanna read next year, in today’s one it’s all about the 12 classics I would love to get to in 2016.
None of them are required reading for University this year and that’s why I included them. I wanted to pick up some authors who I will study but whose books are not the ones I need to get to, mandatorily speaking. There are also some modern classics. All of them, however, have in common one thing: they've been added to my bookshelves this year and I don't want them to start piling up.
Here is the list:
- The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.
- Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.
- The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë.
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.
- A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith.
- Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf.
- Persuasion by Jane Austen.
- North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell.
- Middlemarch by George Eliot.
- Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert.
- Mariana by Monica Dickens.
- Someone at a Distance by Dorothy Whipple.
I hope you had an amazing Christmas Day and you got a lot of bookish gifts because those are the best, aren’t they? Have you read any of these classcis?
