    Wow, that’s an impressive list!

    • emma says:

      Haha I know, the list keeps growing as well! Have lots more that I’ve read but don’t really want to write on so these are the ones I actually quite liked 🙂

      • beckyday6 says:

        In that case it’s even more impressive! I hope one day I will be able to get though as many classics as you. 🙂 I do really enjoy them but often feel the need to space them out between other books that are a little easier. Especially when I’m at university, it’s hard enough to get the time to read an easy book, let alone a classic! Lol. 🙂

        Even when I go back to reading easier books, I end up analysing them like the classics! I can thank my uni courses for that 😛 Aww you’ll get around to most of these books eventually – I probably wouldn’t have been introduced to any of them if I hadn’t chosen to study literature 🙂

  2. Nice list, I have read 18 of these. I guess I should draw up a separate list of all the Classics titles I have read as well.

    Some great books on that list. Can’t wait until you review The Woman in White. Great book.
