Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and involves making a lists about a certain topic. And who doesn’t like making lists, right?
This week, I’m splitting my list into classics that I want to read, and classics that I have read.
1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
This is my first, and so far only, Jane Austen book and I really enjoyed it. I loved the relationship between the sisters.
2. The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
I’m half way through this edition of the Sherlock Holmes stories, and I really like it. They’re all so clever, and a lot of fun too.
3. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
After watching the brilliant BBC adaptation of this (I recommend it to all), I had to read the book. Margaret is an awesome character, and I loved her and Thornton together.
4. The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien
I’ve read the whole trilogy, and I had to include them because they are such a fantasy classic. It may have taken me a long time to get through the book, but I really enjoyed them.
5. The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie
A few years ago, I fell in love with Agatha Christie’s book, and my favourites have to be the Hercule Poirot stories. The Mysterious Affair at Styles is his first story, but I love so many of them. They’re all brilliant!
1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
My plan is to read this next month, because Andie at thebookheap is hosting a read-along. I’m so excited about starting it!
2. Emma by Jane Austen
I’ve already seen the BBC version of this and I really loved it, so I can’t wait to read this at some point.
3. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
This has been on my bookshelf for years and I really need to read it at some point.
4. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
It looks really good, and everybody seems to like it.
5. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
It’s another classic that everybody seems to have read and liked, so I’ll definitely be reading this in the near future.
Which classics have you loved? And which ones are you planning on reading?
