Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish. It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists! Check out what others have posted by going over there!
This week’s topic is-
Top Ten Books I can’t believe I haven’t read in X genre. I know I am really sounding redundant, but I pick the top ten Classics I am ashamed I haven’t read yet-
1, Wuthering Heights-sitting on my bookshelf
2. East of Eden– also sitting there.
3. The Bell Jar– is right next to East of Eden
4. 1984- on my Kindle
5. A Farewell to Arms– Kindle also
6. The Count of Monte Cristo– on bookshelf too
7. The Picture of Dorian Gray
8. Mrs. Dalloway
9. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
10. And Then There Were None– I will have to search my son’s room for this one.
This is a pitiful list- especially since I actually OWN most of these. What books can you not believe you haven’t read yet?
Wuthering Heights is on my list too… how have we not read this yet?!
You need to read 1984 – and East of Eden. They’re both so great!!
Thanks for the suggestions!
Start with 1984 which is immensely readable and will stay with you for years to come 🙂
There have been a few suggestions to start with that one- thanks!
I haven’t read any of these except East of Eden. Agatha Christie- I MUST get to her soon!
Too many books!!!
I actually just read The Bell Jar recently after having it on my TBR a while. It was a little different from what I expected, but still good.
AND THEN THERE WERE NONE is not a long book. And it’s fun. Pick that one up. LOL
And Then There Were None nearly made my list, but I am determined to read it this year! 1984 is fabulous and I adored Wuthering Heights when I read it, but I was a 17 year old romantic then so I might have a different reaction if I were to reread it!
I didn’t love Wuthering Heights – I’m not sure you missed much by not reading it.
1984 is a good one- I haven’t read any of the others though.
I’m absolutely determined to read And Then There Were None sometime this year! I’m really not a fan of Wuthering Heights, but I do want to read The Count of Monte Cristo at some point. Great list!
Ooooo, East of Eden is one of my all time favorite novels ever. I want to reread this novel again… Especially now that I’ve recently visited the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas, California as well as Steinbeck’s boyhood home.
And Then There Were None is also one of my favorite Agatha Christie novels. I’ve read 2-3 times already!

1984 is fenomenal so you should get to it soon! 😀
