Top 10 Classics

Top Ten Classics
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I'm going halfsies with this list because I differentiate classics into two categories..."grown-up" and "kids and teens." And to be honest, I've not read a lot of "classic" books.  I have my moments of shame and guilt especially as a library, but I've come to realize that life is too short, and there are too many shiny books, to let this get me down.  So here's a mix of age stretching classic books.

And I would LOVE to get your recommendations.  One of my reading goals was to read a classic a month this year, but that's SO not going to happen...but I might be able to squeeze in a few before 2015.

What's on your list?

1) To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

2) Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

3) The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

4) The Great Gatsby By F. Scott Fitzgerald

5) Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

6) The Little Prince by Anotine de Saint-Expery

7) A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle
8) The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

9) Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

10) The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster


  1. I love all these books though I haven't read Phantom Tollbooth! No need to feel shame - as you say life's too short - read what you want. This is my list of fave classics: My TTT.

  2. Great list! I haven't read To Kill a Mockingbird, though. (Hangs head in shame.) And I didn't really care for The Great Gatsby, but that's just me. I'm totally on board with all the others, though! (Well, Phantom Tollbooth wasn't one of my all-time faves, but it's fun.)
