Apparently I’ve read 9 of these books… Which isn’t an awful lot but I honestly am not one to read a lot of classics? And most of these are just that, right? I think…
I also added which books I already own and plan on reading at some point, which are six of these! So, maybe one day I’ll be able to say I’ve read 15 of these books? Who knows…


If you’re reading this, you’re tagged. Sorry, not sorry!
Apart from that, Marie @ Drizzle & Huricane Books, Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm, Destiny @ Howling Libraries and Misty @ Misty’s Bookspace: consider yourself tagged!
Mostly because I’m curious to see how many books you’ve read of this list. If you don’t do tags anymore or already did this one, don’t feel obliged to do it!

    1. You’re welcome! Figured I’d tag you since it’s a really easy one to put together as well, haha. [Time-management is key when you NEED to read!]

      The day I suddenly have a thing with classics, I’ll be able to up my number but.. Yeah, for now, no classics gal. :’)

  1. Thanks for doing the tag!! 9 isn’t bad 🙂 especially if you don’t read the classics. Of the ones on your TBR list, I would highly suggest Pride and Prejudice, The Golden Compass and Lord of the Rings! Those three are all really great books!

  2. Oh well that’s a fun tag, I’m not sure I will come up with as many books as you did there, though, hahaha, that’s still a decent score! I am not a huge classics reader either 😛

  3. Nice list! I’ve read 15 of them so far. Some of the other books were sitting on my goodreads TBR for years and only recently got removed after i admitted to myself that i will probably not read them in the foreseeable future…
