Tales of a Misguided Mommy

What I am reading


I clearly have a Jane Austin obsession lately huh?  And Katie has me on a mission to read the top ten book that Time Magazine says you have to read.  I think I will Start with Lolita just because it freaked her out so much.  Here is the list:

  1. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
  2. Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
  3. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
  4. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
  5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
  6. Hamlet by William Shakespeare
  7. The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald
  8. In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust
  9. The Stories of Anton Chekhov by Anton Chekhov
  10. Middlemarch by George Eliot

Does it count if I read Gatsby in high school?  Any way Anna Karenina is the only one I've read so far.  Lolita will be next after I finish My Jane Austin Collection and Katie and I are on a mission to read Water for Elephants also...heavy load huh?

Love, Misguided Mommy

Great List! I've been wanting to start Anna Karenina for while now. I think my sister has a copy at my parents house. I'll have to look.
