A Tree Grows in Brooklyn has been sitting in my Kindle Library for a couple of years now. And if I’m honest, I often forget I own this book until I see it on my want to read list on Goodreads.  I figured if I made it a post on my TBR Thursday tag then that might persuade me to read it sooner.  Instead what I find myself wanting to do is create a list of all the classics I need to read or reread at some point.  So I’m adding to my TBR list rather than making it shorter, but I’ll make sure to place A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on the top.

Anyone have any classic books they love that they would like to suggest for my list? I’d love to read them in the comments below.

Happy Reading,

  1. I still have yet to read this one and I would like to. I try to have a classic in my reading rotation as well. Right now I am on The Trial by Kafka. Some of favorite classics to recommend are The Scarlet Letter, The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories, Rebecca, and Beowulf.

    1. The Great Gatsby is one of my favorites and I had to read The Scarlet Letter, Beowulf, and To Kill a Mockingbird in high school. I’ve never heard of The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories and I don’t think I’ve ever read Rebecca so I’ll have to look into those further. I think it’s always a good idea to keep a classic on your reading lists, it’s how I discovered Little Women is my favorite book. Thanks for commenting!
