Top Ten Tuesday is THE bookish meme, hosted by the wonderful ladies at The Broke and the Bookish, the book blog that hooked me on all other book blogs! I’m a sucker for bookish memes, so here we go…
Today’s topic is Top Ten Classic Books! They can be books you’ve read, books you want to read, whatever spin you want to take on the topic. I’ve decided to focus on Classics I Love and Classics I Want to Read. Anyhoo, in no particular order here’s my list 🙂
Classics I Adore
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – This is the ulitmate for me, I adore it!
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen – Another great read by Jane Austen, and I also love the film adaptation.
Little Women Series by Louisa May Alcott – Another series I’ve loved since childhood, and it’s stood the test of time for me like the others on this list.
Anne of Green Gables Series by L.M. Montgomery – I have adored this series since childhood, I’ve always wanted my own Gilbert Blythe!
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank – This book opened my (very young) eyes to the atrocities of the Holocaust, very sad and moving read.
Classics On My TBR & Also On My Bookshelf
I have a lot of classic books I want to read, so I decided to narrow it down to the ones I’m keen to read that are also sitting on my bookshelf right now 🙂
I’ve had most of these for YEARS and I have no idea why I haven’t read them yet! Actually, I do know why, my super procrastination skills strike again… Maybe 2014 will be my year, or what’s left of it anyway 🙂
There you have it, that’s my list! How about you, what did you have on your list? Have you got any others that you could recommend to me?
