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

What’s on your list? Let me know!

  1. I love Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the Grimm’s Fairy Tales, I hope you enjoy them! I’m rather ashamed to admit I still haven’t read To Kill a Mockingbird – I need to get on that!

  2. Oh, Anne of Green Gables! I haven’t read that either, but I do own a copy. I’ve heard greta things about it. Emma is on my list too, for TBR. I love Austen, and knowing how the story goes is different from experiencing it when reading.
