8 Alternative Classic Novels You'll Love to Read

This list from Culture Trip has 8 books to read instead of their more well known classic counterparts. I have arranged it so the books on the left are the ones suggested and the books on the right are the ones they replace. Check out the article for their reasoning.
"Snuggling down with a classic novel and cup of tea is a wonderful pastime, but if you are feeling a little more unconventional, why not take a look at our alternative list of classic reads. The novels listed are all similar in some way to their celebrated equivalent — be it by theme, author, style or basic premise — and are without a doubt as equally deserving of their literary fame."
