Classic Books On My TBR

Right now, I’m reading Rebecca and I’ve really been enjoying it. It’s making me want to pick up more classics to see what I’m missing out on. So here are a few classic books that I’m adding to my tbr. You’ll notice a theme, because I’m stuck in the world of gothic literature right now.

The Woman in White

The Woman in White|Wilkie Collins

I learned about The Woman in White when I was researching for my Halloween Classics list. I didn’t add it to my list right then, but I keep seeing it everywhere. It’s time to give it a try. It sounds spooky, and it promises plot-twists galore. It sounds like something I would love.


Carmilla|Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

While everyone thinks of Dracula as the original vampire novel, Carmilla actually predates it by twenty-six years. I’ve read a lot of reviews that says it sticks closer to the original vampire folklore than most vampire novels. I’m interested to see the differences.

The House of Seven Gables

The House of the Seven Gables|Nathaniel Hawthorne

I’ve always been interested with anything to do with Salem, and this is a must read. The House of the Seven Gables follows a curse on a family that participated in The Salem Witch Trials. I enjoyed The Scarlet Letter, so I’m hoping to enjoy this even more.

The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby|F. Scott Fitzgerald

Lastly, I want to read The Great Gatsby. In my last book haul, I bought a copy of Nick, which tells about Nick before the events in The Great Gatsby. I did read it in school, but I think I need to refresh my memory before diving into Nick.

So those are a few of the classic books on my tbr. Do you have any classic book recommendations? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I’ve never read Rebecca but after reading The Reading List, I think that I probably should. I picked up To Kill a Mockingbird today which is another one featured in The Reading List 😀

  2. I mostly enjoy Jane Eyre (minus the wandering in the moors. Same goes for Wuthering Heights.)
    Not Gothic, but Willa Cather’s writing is great.
