What are your favorite classics?
Leave a comment- I love to hear from you!
Great lists. I’ll have to work on mine.
Great list! The Bell Jar is one of my favorite books, so I hope you like it.
I am going to definitely read it this summer!
Great list! I love Pride & Prejudice as well, and there are a ton of books on your list that I need to read!
I just read Rebecca this year and loved it! I also want to read The Bell Jar…high on my list this year. Great list!
I read a lot of classics during Banned book Week as most of them are on the banned book list 🙂
Giid idea- will have to keep my eyes opened for that this year.
Little Women and To Kill a Mockingbird are two of my most favorite books!
Me too- it may be time for some serious re-reads!
I’m so glad to see Gone with the Wind & Little Women on your list! 🙂 East of Eden is excellent. One of my favorites.
I couldn’t find it today in the bookstore 😦
Need to hit the library!
I love that you did the two lists! I’m on board with most of your favorite classics, but a lot of your want-to-read-classics are ones that I’ve been steering clear of. :p
Me too- that’s why I haven’t read them!
LOTR, Brave New World, Jane Eyre, and The Bell Jar are all classics I haven’t read yet but want to!
Great list! I love A Tale of Two Cities, and I really should read some Sherlock Holmes too!
Little Women and To Kill A Mockingbird just barely didn’t make my top ten list, they’re amazing. I also want to read a Tale of Two Cities!
I think you will love The Bell Jar. I never get tired of recommending it and telling everyone that it is a book that will change their lives, no matter their age.
If you want to start with an amazing Sherlock Holmes, I recommend you The Hound of the Baskervilles. That is where I started and it made me fall head over heels in love with crime fiction.
So many great choices on both lists! I LOVE Rebecca, P&P, LOTR and How to Kill a Mockingbird! I need to read Brave New World, and some of the others! And I love Sherlock Holmes but need to read so many on your second list, too!
I think the biggest thing I learned from doing this TTT was how many classics that I haven’t read and would like to – you were very smart to do both lists! I’ll put in a plug for A Tale of Two Cities – it was assigned reading in high school and I actually remember a good bit about it which considering my bad memory means it must have made a deep impression.
I loved Rebecca and I’m considering a re-read. There are a few books on your list I definitely want to read – great list!
