Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Seeing as I haven't read many of the classics for myself, I didn't know what to do for this weeks TTT. Then, I decided that I would ask for recommendations from my friends who HAVE read them. A few that were recommended, I have read and loved, but some don't consider them to be classics!



Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
This was the very first book that came out of all three of my friends mouths! Can you guess what the next one is?

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I have gotten some pretty nasty looks when I admit that I haven't read this one. I will try to fix that soon!


Emma by Jane Austen
Jane Austen seems to be the pretty popular choice!


Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Recommended and I have wanted to read it for a long time!



To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
I have heard how beautiful and wonderful, and I have been told it is an experience I need to have for myself!



Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
It is a classic to me, and one of my favorite books in the world!



Highly recommended and I Adored it!



This just makes me smile!



Alice in Wonderland.......



The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
They made us read it in school, but I didn't mind at all. I loved this book, and I have read it several times since.

And a special shout out goes to....


The Giver by Lois Lowry
This book deserves to be on the Classics list. It holds a special place in my heart!


See you next week, y'all! Happy Fourth of July! My hubby and I are heading to Colorado for the week, and I am so excited. Just thought I would share that random piece of information!

  2. I haven't heard about 'The Outsiders' before, it was not mandatory read in my school. Sounds interesting though.
    And I agree Pride and Prejudice is a must read. Also I would add as recommendation: Count of Monte Cristo: fun and emotional adventure.
