1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I’ve been wanting to reread this for an age–who knows if 2021 is the mood for a romance so toxic it borders on a hate story rather than a love story, but I’m willing to give it a go!

  1. I read all these Austens so long ago but I definitely want to reread them at some point! Same goes for Wuthering Heights 😊 I’m hoping to get to Rebecca this year because that’s a classic I keep hearing so many great things about. Awesome list!
