I went through a period in high school were I read a ton of classics, most of which I look back and think "But why?". lol.
If you would like to learn more about the book (though I am not sure why, since it's on this list!), click the image of the book. This post contains affiliate links.
1. War and Peace
2. Crime and Punishment
3. Tess of the D'Urbervilles
4. Sylvia's Lovers
While I really enjoyed Elizabeth Gaskell's other books, this one was annoying.
5. Jude the Obscure
Another depressing book. I do like some Thomas Hardy's other stories.
6. The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel
While I didn't hate this one, I was disappointed that many of the sequels didn't live up to the first one.
7. Rupert of Hentzau
I didn't realize there was three in the series, but after the Prisoner of Zenda, this one was just kind of depressing. Not at all what I was hoping for!
8. The Thief
Over all, I enjoyed the story, but I really did not care for the style it was written in.
9. Great Expectations
10. Lord of the Flies
