OMG Anna Karenina. The Russian novels. The gothic novels like Jane Eyre. Similarities make me love them both so much.

You just made me hungry to read Russian or gothic.

I’ve read:

The Brothers Karamazov

War and Peace

Crime and Punishment

Fathers and Sons (Turgenev)

Jane Eyre

Wuthering Heights

Not sure what other reads fit in this category or if Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights are in a category by themselves.

Recommendations to scratch the itch this post just caused?

Ami the only one who has an itchy reading spot that can be equallly satisfied by Russian or gothic novels? What do they have in common that I love?

We have a lot of crossover. I have to assume you've read Wuthering Heights right? It's been years since I read it, but I mentally group it with Jane Eyre.
