Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!
First off, I am kind of goggling at the fact that I haven’t done a TTT post since – wait for it – March 31st! Good grief, I really did fail at being a blogger the last few months, didn’t I? However, I THINK I’m back – hopefully for good – and am ready to give you all my list of the Top Ten Classics I Want to Read. You know, at some point in the (probably not-very-near) future. I’m sure you all can empathize a bit with me on that, right? I mean, there’s just SO MANY THINGS to read out there! And I tend to find so-called “classic” literature a bit more dull and/or dry than what’s released nowadays, which doesn’t help. And in that vein, in order to mix this list up a bit, I’ve created a list of “new” and “old” “classics” to share this week. I promise that, at some point, I WILL read these books. You can put that down in writing!
Books listed: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas | The Iliad by Homer | The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky | The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer | Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor | The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood | The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham | Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier | Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys | Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
So what does your list look like this week? Did we do the same topic? Or did you spin things a different way? Please link me so I can come visit you!
