Top Ten Favourite Classics
I’m going to do my top 5 favourite classics and then my top 5 classics I want to read. I haven’t read too many since they’re hard to get into but this is what I came up with.
5 Favourite Classics
1. To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
This was probably my first experience with classic literature. We had to read it in school but I was ok with that since I really enjoyed reading it. I loved the younger narrator and all the great quotes from this book.
2. Sense and Sensibility – Jane Austen
My first Jane Austen book. I really do love her and need to read more of her books. She’s just amazing at writing strong female characters from that time period. Even though the language can be a little harder to understand, I love everything about this book.
3. The Hobbit – J.R>R Tolkien
I expected this book to be a lot harder than it was. It was actually a really fun read with lots of action. It is a huge book however and can look a little scary but it’s worth it.
4. The Chronicles of Narnia – C.S. Lewis
I love this series. Who doesn’t though? Everything about it is perfect. It’s technically about religion but I like how it doesn’t push that fact in your face. It’s something you have to figure out on your own. The characters in this series are my favourite thing I think. They have so much detail!
5. The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Originally Le Petit Prince, I read this book in it’s original language (french) and it was great. It look like a children’s book but I thought the morals were more so for adults. It was a great and entertaining read though and I recommend it to everyone.
5 Classics I Want to Read
1. Emma by Jane Austen
2. The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
3. Anne of Green Gables – L.M. Montgomery
4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Lewis Caroll
5. The Brother’s Grimm Fairy Tales
