Hello Lovelies! Yes, once again, I am a day late and a dollar short when it comes to Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish). But here they are anyway. This week's topic is 

Top Ten Classic Books I'd Like to Read

So, in no particular order, here they are.

Moby Dick : I feel like even saying that is guaranteeing myself torture, but a semi-reliable source thinks it's amazing, so I'll give it a try.

Little Women: I watched the movie because it's one of my best friend's favorite movies and found it enjoyable. I can only imagine that the book will be better (isn't that usually the case?).

Three Musketeers: Another one which I've seen adapted in various ways, but I want to read the book for myself.

Count of Monte Cristo: I tried to read this in high school but I gave up pretty early on. I think I've learned how to be patient with my reading by now, and I'd like to try it again.

Dracula: I love vampires, but I've never read this classic--what's wrong with me?

East of Eden: My best friend adores this book, and I actually liked Grapes of Wrath in retrospect, so I'd like to try it. 

Watership Down: I know, I know, how'd I miss this one? I was more of a Redwall fan when I was young. I never made it around to Watership Down.

Oliver Twist: I love Dickens. I can't wait to get to reading this one.

Great Expectations: It's a honker, but I think it'll be worth it once I try to tackle it.

I know why the Caged Bird Sings: I've had this on my shelf for ages and with the recent passing of the author, it seems appropriate to finally read it.

What classics are on your list, lovelies? Which of these should I read immediately?? Let me know in the comments!
