Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Classics

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Favourite Classic Books

1. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: My favourite series of all time. I love how epic the whole thing is and I will forever want to be an elf because of it.

2. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: One of my favourite childhood books, who doesn't want to fall down that rabbit hole?

3. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald: So much awesomeness packed into this small little book. It's the perfect story about how we obsess over things so much that we make them into something that doesn't even exist.

4. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger: I read this one in high school and it's stuck with me ever since. Holden is my favourite.

5. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee: Another high school fave, this book taught me more than I could have imagined.

6. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare: The first Shakespeare play I read and I fell in love with the tragedy of it all. These characters have never left my mind.

7. The Lord of the Flies by William Golding: So creepy but so good. The idea of how quickly things will get rough without adults there to stop it played out so perfectly.

8. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis: Who didn't want to open a closet at their house and hope to be whisked off to Narnia? Such fond memories of this book from my childhood.

9. Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote: It certainly wasn't as sweet and adorable as the movie, but this short book packed a punch.

10. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: What can I say, I love the guy. This book was so much fun to read and I loved Smaug. Can't wait for the last movie to come out!


  1. Great List! Romeo and Juliet is my favorite Shakespeare piece I have read so far. I really need to start the Chronicles of Narnia soon!

  2. I've only read Romeo and Juliet in your list. :D
