  1. WOW! Impressive. You're really read a LOT of lengthy books, and not only that, but classics. I'm such a wimp when it comes to long books, so mine list is lucky to be books of all 400+ pages. ;)

    1. I read most of them when I was in high school and had a lot more time on my hands. I don't dare attempt them now that I have kids.;)

  4. Girl. I am impressed as hell. I've never even thought of trying War and Peace. I HAVE Les Miserable and I've never cracked it open. Congrats for the most impressive list I've seen so far and probably will ever see this TTT.

    2. Thank you! This is what happens when you have a high schooler who likes to read and is in charge of her own lit list.;)

  6. War and Peace... I had a friend in college who used that book as a doorstop bc it was so thick! LOL! I've not read any of them (I admit that I don't particularly like big books), but am familiar with some.

  8. This week really makes me want to read Les Miserables. It's already on my TBR, I just have to read it. I probably won't get to it until next year though.

  9. I have not read any of the novels on your TTT post! They look like really good reads. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to get around to reading a few of them!
