Five For Friday – Classics Novels I Want To Read This Year

Hello everyone, I have decided to choose 5x big books that I would like to read this year. I am trying to think more about quality than quantity. The idea came to me when I picked up a copy of Les Miserables the other night… that book is just a challenge in itself! Anyway here’s my five…

1. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
This book was on my last list but it also fits this list too. I really want to read this book this year, so I better start soon, it’s a biggun!!!

2. Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier
Ever since I read Rebecca last year (which was one of my favourite reads) I have been desperate to read more of her novels. Jamaica Inn is based in Cornwall so I can’t wait to read this.

3. Sense And Sensibility by Jane Austen
I really love Pride and Prejudice but have never got into any other Jane Austen novels, I have loved all the movies and TV shows based on her books, so it’s time to get reading another one of her classics.

4. Animal Farm by George Orwell
I LOVED 1984, I read it years ago, but I have never read Animal Farm. It’s a very short book, and a classic that I think is a must read.

5. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
I may wait until the end of the year to read this one, it’s the perfect Christmas read which I have never picked up! Shameful.

What classic novels do you plan to read this year? Have you read any of the ones I have mentioned. I would love to chat, so let me know. Katie x

      I’m going to try again too and if I can’t get into it I will get rid of my copy. I absolutely love the film with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet I love the storyline but for some reason the book is so hard! Let me know if you do read it ☺️

        Thanks – oddly this was Jane’s most popular book at first, because it was the most similar to other books out there. Now I think it’s probably not many people’s favourite.

    Great post!

    I know it’s not on the list, but you mentioned Rebecca. I got that book on sale forever ago and still haven’t read it yet. I became aware of it when there was suppose to be a Broadway musical that never ended up happening. It was suppose to come to New York not once, but twice, some kind of drama with the producer kept it from happening. Definitely hope to read that book finally this year.

      I had no idea it was meant to be a musical, I know my parents went to see it in the theatre but I think that was just a play. The book is so good it’s definitely now one of my favourite classic reads, I hope you get the chance to read it this year and enjoy it as much as I did 🙂
