  1. Love this list! Hard Times was my first Dickens novel, and now I’m obsessed with him so it must have done something right. The Iliad is also on my list. It’s one of those high school reads that we read parts of it but not everything, so it’s high time I get through the whole read. Hope you enjoy your book!


    1. I’ve read Great Expectations and really enjoyed it. I should really read more Dickens. You’re list is great too! What if you get The Odyssey? Shouldn’t Iliad come before Odyssey. It was recommended by my boyfriend who studies classics. He fell asleep at the first few pages and wants to see if I can get any further!
