Top Ten Tuesday 08.16.11

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten is a freebie!

So, we get to make up a top ten of anything we want. I'm choosing to do my Top Ten Authors I Keep Meaning to Read. These are authors I really want to read, but I haven't yet gotten to their work!

  1. Anne Sexton
  2. W. Somerset Maugham
  3. Vita Sackville-West
  4. Dorothy Parker
  5. Alexandre Dumas
  6. Victor Hugo
  7. Charles Dickens
  8. Doris Lessing
  9. Elizabeth Von Arnim
  10. Henry James

Many people are intimidated because of Charles Dickens' reputation, but as with many other phenomena on Earth, give him a reputation yourself. And you can only enjoy his novels if you murders the memory of your English teacher talking about them and sit down, with A GREAT AMOUNT of time, to enjoy. And enjoy! Also be sure to try Gabriel Garcia Marquez if you haven't already!

I have been meaning to read Dumas and Hugo forever and just have never gotten there.

Maugham is on my list too. I have only read one Dickens, so I would like to read more from him too.
