Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish. It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists! Check out what others have posted by going over there! http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com
Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope you are all well- here is a list of the top ten Classics I would like as I am still planning on joining The Classics Club soon! These are books I haven’t read yet- most of the Classics that come straight to mind will have to be rereads for me.
1. East of Eden
2. And Then There Were None
3. The Bell Jar
5. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
6. Animal Farm
7. My Cousin Rachel
8. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
10. The Divine Comedy
I joined the Classics Club this year and really need to get moving on my challenge in 2014. I plan to read 1984 and the Bell Jar next year as part of it. 🙂 I hope you enjoy these and get to join the Classics Club- it’s great motivation for getting through some of the older books as they have group reads and a monthly spin.
The Bell Jar is one I want to read, and of course you can’t go wrong with Sherlock Holmes! Merry Christmas!
I read East of Eden for Classics Club this year! It was surprisingly good (and I didn’t even like the two other Steinbeck novels I had read before that.)
I read Animal Farm in school and Sherlock Holmes when I was younger, but other than that I haven’t read any on your list! I read part of Dracula and need to finish it sometime! 1984 and My Cousin Rachel are on my TBR list! I think about joining the Classics Club sometimes! I hope you have fun!
Some good books–I’ve read most of them. I adore Sherlock, he’s the original smart-@ss detective.
I hope you get all the books in your wish list. I’m going to read The Bell Jar next year. I have 1984 in my shelves but I haven’t read it yet. Merry Christmas! 🙂
What a great idea! I’m trying to add more classics into my reading year for 2014 as well. There’s a certain edition of Dracula I have my eye on…
You have so many great books on this list. I loved Animal Farm, I thought The Bell Jar was worth a read, but I didn’t love it as much as her poetry, and I definitely want to read East of Eden as well.
