TOP TEN TUESDAY

I try to do these weekly but I have failed for a long time now haha. Forgive me? This is a weekly challenge hosted by the broke and the bookish. I saw this weeks on Coffeeloving Bookoholic  and the books she picked and some of my all time favourites- so I feel like I HAVE to do it.

TOP TEN BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO CLASSICS. 

I absolutely love classics I do…good thing I studies an English Literature undergraduate course.

  1. My all time favourite book is – On the Road by Jack Kerouac.  It both breaks my heart and baffles me when I see people giving it like one star. WHYYYY? I initially read this book in anticipation for the 2012 movie starring Kristen Stewart (one of my all time favourite actresses) but I am so glad I read it then because it still stays with me now. qqq.gif
  2. The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald. I first read this years ago and then I had to study it for first year at University and I fell in love with it deeper. 7.gif
  3. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. I love love love Dickens. 0.gif
  4. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. http---mashable.com-wp-content-gallery-classics-you-should-read-tumblr_lx025fwjgg1r6gxmgo1_r1_500.gif 
  5.  Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. 11.gif
  6. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontetumblr_oieqvj0OWL1u76npoo1_500.gif

  1. I have read in no particular order: The Secret Garden, Lord of the Flies, The Great Gatsby, and Wuthering Heights. Others I have seen as movies, but don’t consider that the same as reading them. I think I still find Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead as well as Betty Smith’s Joy in the Morning all classics that I have read more than once and will re-read again.

  2. I’ve read all of them except Oliver Twist (I did read an abridged version though…). As to On The Road – I think it’s the kind of book that you will only love if you read it at the right moment. I only read it as a full grown working adult with responsibility and it seemed so frivolous. But had I read it at university – I know I would have loved it. I have a similar reaction to Catcher in the Rye – read it as a teeneager and believed it was the best book ever. If I think back, I agree now with the people who say Holden is a self centered jerk, but so are all teens for a bit and that’s why the book is so great. I missed the window and now it’s just tainted.
