My 2017 Reading List

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!!
