Top Ten Favorite Classic Books

Its time for Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

This week's theme is:  Top Ten Favorite Classic Books 

This year I joined The Classics Club and have agreed to read 50 classics in the next five years. This means I have read quite a few of these this year alone!  Here's my favorites so far: 

1. To Kill A Mockingbird: This is my favorite book period.  Its just amazing.

 

2. Great Expectations: I recently read this and was quite impressed.  I really liked how the main character really wasn't the best person at all times. He needed to be corrected several times.


3. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn:  I love this book, although it's been over ten years since I read it.  I think a reread is in order.


4. Slaughterhouse Five:  This book is unique and hilarious.


5. A Christmas Carol: Such a fun book for a holiday season!

6. The Hobbit: This is my favorite fantasy book.


7. The Count of Monte Cristo: I would love to reread this someday but it's a huge undertaking.


8. Anne of Green Gables: This is a cute fun tale I can't wait to read to my daughters (when I have daughters).


9. Catch 22: This is another unique and hilarious book.


10. Something Wicked This Way Comes: This is a fun a eery tale.

  1. Great list! I've been meaning to re-visit Catch 22; I remember enjoying it immensely but it'd be nice to re-read it again, maybe spot things I missed the first time around, and review the book xD

  6. "Well now..." I personally think you can read Ann of Green Gables to you sons too... when you have sons. I reread it when I need reminded that most of humanity is silently decent. :)

    1. This is true. Considering my husband is a big fan, I am guessing my sons will too.

  7. I'm dying to read the Count of Monte Cristo but I still have to make my way through Dracula, Les Miserables, and Anna Karenina first... :/ So impressed you've read it! Great choice. :)

    1. Les Miserable is so much bigger than The Count of Monte Cristo. Good luck with that! It's on my TBR list, but man, it's intimidating.
