The never-ending TBR list…

So, I’ve been thinking lately about actually starting to tackle that TBR list.  Not just the pile of books that I haven’t read yet, but the books that I’ve wanted to read for years and never got around to… or even some books that I probably read too young and would like to read.  For instance, I just finished The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison (review to come) and am currently reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.  I’ve never read Jane Eyre… or any of Jane Austen’s books, I’m ashamed to say.  This will be remedied shortly.  Thus, I’ve assembled a list of classic books that have been on my list  for a while now, to share with you.  Let me start off by clarifying; this is by no means an exhaustive list nor are the books listed in any particular order.

1. Pride and Prejudice

2. To Kill a Mockingbird* (This is a re-read to be honest – I read it in middle school)

3. War and Peace

4. Beloved

5. The Hiding Place

6. Anna Karenina

7. The Princess Bride

8. Little Women* (Another re-read)

9. The Bridges of Madison County

10. Emma (Well, the whole Jane Austen collection, really)

11. The Handmaid’s Tale

12. The Color Purple

13. A Wrinkle in Time

14. The Great Gatsby

15. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

So, what do you think about my list?  How many of these have you read?  Am I forgetting any?  What’s on your list?
