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
  7. Lord of the Flies by William Golding. 8888.gif  
  8. A Clockwork Orange  by Anthony Burgess88.gif

Which classics do you love?

WHAT I AM READING NEXT 📚

…drum roll please…. dun dun dun….I am going to read… Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland. 

I got this for my mum for her birthday but I’ve been eager to read it myself for ages. Did I slyly just buy it for myself for “for her” . Sorry Mum! 🙌🏻 

   

Excuse the messy bookshelf, I had to cram a lot of stuff on it while I am home for summer. (There are still like 8 boxes of books downstairs aswell 😂)

  1. Did you have a dream last night? What happened?                                                                 Ummm…did I dream last night? ahhh yes, yes I did…I dreamt that I was Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. This is probably because I was reading it before bed…can’t blame a girl for dreaming about Mr.Darcy.

     

  2. Elephants or giraffes?                                                                                                                 Elephants…or both. I love both.
  3. Going to the cinema or having a movie night in?                                                                           Brooke…why have you asked the hardest questions. I spent ages deciding on elephants or giraffes…now this. I honestly like both. Sometimes I love staying in but if it’s a film i’ve been anticipating I have to see it asap.
  4. Indian or Chinese food?                                                                                                           Indian all the way.
  5. In the film Cars, do they have car insurance or life insurance?                                 What an interesting and thought provoking question…ummm probably life insurance. But, maybe their care insurance is just called life insurance.
  6. Sweet or savoury?                                                                                                                                       Savoury.
  7. Never be able to wash your clothes again or never be able to wash your bedding again? You can’t change or buy new ones either.                                            I know it would be gross to never wash your bedding but I guess your skin has direct contact with your clothes daily so i’d have to pick them.  Although never washing bedding makes me feel sick and gives me the hebejebes.
  8. What are the first 5 things you do when you wake up?                                                  Check my phone, wash my teeth, wash my face, think about what I am going to wear and eat breakfast (not always)
  9. What are the first 5 things you do before you fall asleep?                                           check my phone (am I addicted to my phone?) , think about what I am going to wear the next day, think about what I have to do, read and have a cup of peppermint tea.
  10. Do you go to the gym? How often?                                                                                             Honestly, and this is AWFUL…but I cannot remember the last time I went to the gym. I prefer to do exercise at home or outside. I am too poor for the gym right now.
  11. If you could create a law, what would it be?                                                                     Another thought provoking question. Ummm I would try and do something with the stigma around mental health.
