Catching Up On Classics: What Are The Best Classic Books to Read When You Hate Classical Literature

Mikel Tadeje

We're strong advocates when it comes to never wasting your time on reading books you don't enjoy. Life's simply too short and there are TOO MANY books to waste your time reading something you hate. However, there's a time and a place for literature that isn't "fun" to read.

While we do believe that there are some books out there that are so bad they're good, we also know from personal experience that not all books fit this category. Sometimes, the classics just aren't your cup of tea.

But if you really want to give classic lit a try, here are some that you might find interesting.

1. Moby Dick by Herman Melville


This book is famous for a good reason – Melville's writing style and the story itself is an epic adventure that'll keep you on your toes. If we had to describe it in one word, we would call it "intense". Each and every chapter will leave you at the edge of your seat and wondering what happens next.

2. Dracula by Bram Stoker


This is a gothic horror novel, so if you're into that kind of thing, you should definitely give this book a shot. It's not your typical horror book though. In fact, it was written in a very interesting way that makes the story even more captivating and thought provoking than your average horror story.

3. Hamlet by William Shakespeare


This book is highly regarded as one of Shakespeare's best. While the writing style may be a bit outdated for younger readers, its plot shines through and makes it a book worth reading. It's simply too many layers of depth that you'll only understand on readings (or re-readings) and even then, some mysteries will continue to evade you.

4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte


Like Dracula, this is also a gothic romance, but it's written much better. It's also famous for its unique writing style that really captures the main character's feelings and brings the story to life. It's an interesting book with quite an interesting style. If you're into gothic fiction, then you'll definitely enjoy this read.

5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain


This book is simply "adventure-packed" in epic proportions. You will find yourself laughing, crying and shocked as you read this book that is renowned as being one of, if not the best American novel. It's a great read for those who want a good story to really sink their teeth into.

Tips For Getting Through A Book You Aren't Enjoying


Some books start off slow and eventually become one of the most enjoyable reads you've encountered in your life - I'm looking at you, Throne of Glass. Others start off strong but then lose steam, leaving you with an unsatisfactory reading experience.

Still, there are some books out there that are just plain bad. But what do you do if you find yourself stuck in the middle of one of these books?

Here are some tips for getting through a book you aren't enjoying:

Take A Break From It

If it's not your kind of book, your enjoyment is going to be limited even if you stick with it. You might as well take a break from it and come back later with a fresh eye. Not only will you be able to better enjoy the book, but you'll also find yourself appreciating some of the things that didn't stand out at first.

Read When You're In The Mood For It - Don't Force A Book Down Your Throat If It Ain't Fit For Eating

If you don't like reading classics, don't force yourself to read them just because everyone else is. It's simply pointless. Maybe try reading some lighter books instead. Classical literature can be a very rewarding experience, but only if you're in the right mood for it. Plus, some books just aren't enjoyable to read when you're not in that mood. You'll undoubtedly notice this if you haven't already tried it out yourself.

Go Back To The Book

The most logical thing to do if you're stuck in a book that's not your cup of tea is to go back. Why waste more time on something you don't want to read?  You can always try it again another day if you really want to give the book a shot. If there's a sequel, perhaps you'll find yourself as interested as you were before or as bored as you were before.

Read Up On Its Characters Or Go Shopping For Merch

One of the most effective ways I've tried getting through a book that I'm convinced I hate is by reading up on the characters. When you fall in love with the characters first, it's hard not to like the books. There are many ways to do this - one of which is buying merch like fan art or bookmarks that'll keep the book at the back of your mind until you decide to just tackle the beast head on.

The Takeaway

So, there you have it. This is a list of some classics you might want to read if you have trouble with classics. If you have any recommendations of your own, feel free to comment them down below! We'd love to hear from you!
And remember, there's no shame in not reading classics - focus on books that make you happy, even if you're a mess by the end of it.
