If you’re on a hunt for the best must-read classic novels, then read on!
Because ‘to read more classic’ has been an infamous bookish resolution last Tuesday, here is a short list of recommendations I got from some awesome book lovers!
I am more than happy to receive all the encouraging comments for my new year’s resolution post last Tuesday! What’s best is that I now have a handful of must-read classics to choose from for this year!
And I am sharing it with you! ❤
From Belinda of Changing my World with Words
“Pride and Prejudice” is a always a good one, but if the 20th century is okay with you, try “To Kill a Mockingbird” or “Rebecca.”
“Emma is great by Jane Austen, The Scarlet Letter by Nathanial Hawthorne, Alice in Wonderland and Alive Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, The Virgin and the Gypsy by D.H. Lawrence, or Son’s and Lovers by the same. The Great Gatsby by Fitzgerald.”
From Irene of Toodles Irene!
“So far the only classic I’ve really enjoyed has been Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck.”
From Wendleberry of Marvel at Words
Some off the cuff recommendations:
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diane Wynne Jones
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
From Alyssa of Book Club Babe
My fav classics are either romances (Wuthering Heights, Age of Innocence) or dystopia (1984, Brave New World).
From Christopher of CLCouch123
“If you’re interested in a kind of classic, I might be able to advise. I happened to buy two new novels while I was away. They are The Fifth Gospel by Ian Caldwell–sort of a Vatican conspiracy-thriller–and The Well by Catherine Chanter, which looks freakish and I trust will be freakishly good.”
From Lynn of Books and Travelling with Lynn
Lots of great classics out there – I second Wendleberry’s above – particularly Howl’s Moving Castle.
Have you picked your classic now?
Please tell me!
