Today I wanted to admit something too you. something that as a reader, I am a bit ashamed off. I have basically read no classics. I can count the amount of classics that I have read on one hand. It is terrible. And I need to rectify it. If you are wondering why I have read so few classics, it’s because of the language. I am mildly dyslexic. For me it mainly affects my ability to spell (although that is a lot better since I started this blog), I can struggle to get my thoughts onto paper and I can’t read classics. Every time I try and pick one up, I get a few pages into it and my brain basically just goes, ‘no’. I just physically cannot read them. but, in the last year or so I have discovered that if I listen to the audiobook of a classic, I can read it. My brain doesn’t freak out. and so I have now made it my mission to listen to a shit ton of classics. Today, I thought that I would share with you the titles that I am really interested in. so let’s do this.
A Tale Of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen
The Catcher In The Rye by J D Salinger
The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
Little Woman by Louisa May Alcott
The Adventures Of Huckleberry Fin by Mark Twain
And there we go. Those are the classics that I am really interested in reading. I already own a few of these (Tale Of Two Cities, Wuthering Heights, To Kill A Mocking Bird) so hopefully I will be able to read a few of them soon. Have you read many classics? Would you be interested in a post talking about the few classics that I have read and what I thought about them? I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and I will see you all again very soon.
