I chose…

…Mansfield Park! I think this is one of Jane Austen’s forgotten stories. I’ve read it several times and watched all the adaptions. (The one with Rose from Doctor Who is probably my fave.)

As for books I SparksNoted…they were more books that I’ve been curious about as an adult but unsure I’d ever actually get to reading. They include Moby Dick, Lolita and The Metamorphosis. It’s a curiosity thing. I think I’m ok with not actually reading them.

As for classics that I DO actually want to read. Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte and Persuasion by Jane Austen on that list. I can’t believe there’s even one Austen book I haven’t read, but yeah, confession!

What classic lit books have you either SparksNote’d, actually read or are planning to read (one day?
