I have the short stories of Edger Allan Poe on my TBR, and I suspect there will be some in that collection that I'll want to put in this list...but for now, this is how it stands.



  1. The Gift of the Magi was such a good read. I reread it every December.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  2. Great list! I’ve read most of these, and I’m reading The Little Prince right now. I hope I like it as much as you did.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. Nice list! I've read half of these, but didn't like heart of darkness due to how it was taught in class.
    Here's my TTT post

  4. Great list. I've read all but #s 3 and 9. Since you have good taste in books :), I trust your judgment and will look them up.

    1. The Story of the Other Wise Man is truly glorious.
