T13 - Classic Books Edition

Thirteen Classic Books...
...I never read as a youth (and still need to read!)

Here are the authors of 13 classic books I never read growing up. I still want to get to them though! Do you know the titles? (Some authors represent more than one book, of course, but I'd never read any of them, so I'm flexible when it comes to exact titles.) No googling! lol

Alphabetical Order by Author
1. L. Frank Baum
2. Emily Bronte
3. Stephen Crane
4. Alexandre Dumas
5. Fred Gipson
6. Harper Lee
7. Jack London
8. John Milton
9. Mary Shelley
10. Bram Stoker
11. Leo Tolstoy

Extra Credit: List your own (a few, not 13) missed classics that you still want to get to!
