I have never actually read a classic book like the Great Gatsby, Pride and Prejudice (yet) or Little Women or anything like that but I want to. I feel like it is a whole other world of literature compared to what is written today. So here is a list of the couple that I would like to finish before I finish high school! If you have any recommendations please comment 🙂
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – This is actually next on my TBR pile and I am really excited to finally read it! I have a good feeling that I am going to enjoy it but it may just take a few pages for me to get into it. After I finish the book, I am planning on watching one of the film adaptations because the only Jane Austen related movies I’ve seen are Austenland and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but I did like those movies a lot so hopefully I will also like the actually movie…
The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald – Only recently did I decide I wanted to read this and since they didn’t have it at my library I just got the movie for now. I honestly have no idea what it is about besides that it is set in the 1920’s and has Leonardo DiCaprio staring in it so that is good enough for me. Once I find the book I will read it and hopefully it is as amazing as everyone says it is!
Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne – I have this book sitting on my shelf but I just haven’t picked it up and its annoying me so much because I really want to read it! When I was younger, my grandpa told me stories and he told me the plot line for this book and I just fell in love. I had to read it so he ordered it for me but after 4 years I still haven’t read it…I will though. I am determined to read it this year.
Those are the top 3 classic books that I want to read before I finish high school! There are definitely more but those are the ones I am determined to read. Hope you enjoyed 🙂

Pride and Prejudice and The Great Gatsby are amazing! I haven’t read the Jules Verne yet, though. The Keira Knightley movie of Pride and Prejudice is the best, by the way, and The Great Gatsby Movie is pretty phenomenal, as well, in my opinion. Hope you enjoy them! 🙂
Thanks for the feedback! I will definitely check out that version of P&P 🙂
