This week's Top Ten Tuesday theme (meme hosted by the bloggers of The Broke and Bookish): books which we're determined to read in 2013. My New Year's reading resolution: I'm hellbent on reading some classics. For all the many, many books I read, very few are considered classics and I definitely want to change that, being a freshman English major and all. So much that I'm devising a new weekly (or bi-weekly) blog feature with reviews of the classics I read. Anyway, here are some of the classics at the top of my list:
I most likely won't get to the very thick Anna Karenina before the movie leaves theaters, but maybe in time for its Red Box release.
This is another thick one, but I generally love Arthurian books, so hopefully it will be enjoyable.
I want to read a few more Jane Austen books this year-- Sense and Sensibility is one I started, but never finished yet.
1984 is like the dystopia classic.
Then Brave New World is a close second-- another famous dystopia.
It's going to be a modern translation of The Canterbury Tales for me, yep. My Middle English is a bit rough.
Othello and other works by the Bard. The only Shakespeare I've read are Hamlet, The Tempest, and Twelfth Night.
I've still never read the original Alice!
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
Rebecca is said to be excellent and suspenseful, yet slow-paced.
So what books have you resolved to read in 2013? And what's your favorite classic-- any I should add to my list?? Leave the links to your Top Tens and I'll visit back.
