Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week we get a new topic for a top ten list. I always say I want to read more classics, and then I never do because my TBR resembles the leaning Tower of Pisa and I never get around to picking any up. PS. Want some classics recommendations? Check out Hannah from So Obsessed With’s feature, Consider This Classic!
1. Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte. This is going to sound really pathetic, but Wuthering Heights has been on my list since Bella was blathering on about it in Twilight.
2. Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte. So I watched the movie with Michael Fassbender, because hello Michael Fassbender, but I’ve heard the novel is very different and I want to know the original story.
3. Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier. I had never heard of this book before Jamie recommended it to me as one I would like.
4. 1984, George Orwell. I love science fiction, so it’s surprising that I’ve never gotten around to this one.
5. Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury. There are so many references to this book in pop culture, so I’d like to know what everyone’s talking about.
6. Paradise Lost, John Milton. So maybe my angel obsession has everything to do with a certain Castiel, but I think I would really enjoy this one.
7. Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen. I adore Pride & Prejudice, but I’ve never read any other Austen novel. I feel like I need to remedy this.
8. Little Women, Louisa May Alcott. So this one made the list solely because they read it on Friends.
9. The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood. A co-worker recently recommended this book to me.
10. Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie. I honestly can’t believe I’ve never read this. I’ve seen so many versions of this in movie-form, but I’ve never heard the original story.
