Hello my loves! I am trying out a new bookish blog meme #5OnMyTBR. I think this will be a fun way to share the books I am excited about (and hopefully) motivate me to ACTUALLY read them!! So this weeks prompt is five classics on your TBR. Now you all know I’m not super into classics but I do have a few sitting on my shelf. Let me know in the comments what I should prioritize! If you have read these I want to know your thoughts!!
Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
Okay. Okay. I know I haven’t read this yet and literally EVERYONE recommends it! I love the movie with Colin Firth.. you know which one I’m talking about!! I do hope to get to this soon.
Little Women by Louisa May Allcott
Little Women. I have loved this movie since I was like ten…so why haven’t I read the book? No one really knows. I just watched the new movie a month ago and I’m motivated to finally pick this up. Plus this has all the winter feels so it will be perfect for the end of the year.
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
So I feel like Rebecca has some creepy gothic vibes and I am here for that. So I am planning on picking it up next month during spooky season!
The Iliad by Homer (translated by Richard Lattimore)
Full disclosure…I basically want to read this for two reasons. One, I read The Song of Achilles this year and will die for it. Also, I was in such a slump that I watched all of the interviews of Madeline Miller that I could find. She basically made me want to be in love with all things Greek Myth. Second, in the darkest days of quarantine Pierce Brown went live on Instagram and was reading the Iliad. I need to read the rest!!
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Yeah…this one probably doesn’t fully count. I’ve already read it. A few times. However, I want to do another reread of the Secret Garden. It’s just one of my favorites. I’m dying for someone to write a fantasy retelling. I think it could it could be epic.
