Most years I've got a huge reading list, and nearly every year, I don't get to all the titles I'd intended.
This year, I've started out with a list of 12 classic novels, including modern classics. I might add to my reading list as I go along, but I think I'd be happy if I just got through these 12 books this year. Many I've already read, but I'd just like to read them again, a few I've started reading and set down never to finish.
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Moby-Dick by Herman Melville
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
The Call of the Wild by Jack London
The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Emma by Jane Austen
Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy
Atonement by Ian McEwan
So it isn't a very long list, and most of the books are already on my bookshelf. I'm a fan of getting lost in a novel and retreating from the stresses of every day life. So I'm looking forward to finishing books I've never quite gotten through (Anna Karenina), rereading some I know and love, and finding a few new tales along the way.
Do you have a reading list for 2017? I'd love to know what's on it!!
