The mayor of Casterbridge
Yes,its my favorite genre!! Im in a childrens classic kick right now. Anything written by L.M.Montgomery, so her Anne and Emily series, Jane Of Lantern Hill, and her adult novel The Blue Castle, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, The Secret Garden, I Capture The Castle, Pride and Prejudice, Frankenstein, A Room With A View, thats definitely not all but all my brain could come up with right now. I add new favorite to the list every year.
Anne series is my all time favourite
Pride & Prejudice
Currently reading Pollyanna and love it! Like I said, I’m obsessed with childrens classics at the moment. lol
Heidi, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, The Secret Garden and The Little House on the Prairie books are some of my very favorite books.
I own Little Women but haven’t read it entirely yet. I’ve only read the first 50 pages and then put it down to read something else at the time I started. I love all the others. I plan to finish Little women soon!
The Portrait of a Lady or In Search if Lost Time
How is in search of lost time?
It’s on my tbr list
It is a beautifully written narrative about a young man’s experiences with the high society of Paris. The characters are wonderfully drawn, but the book requires great patience and rewards slow, careful reading.
I’m going to have to confess here! ? I’m unable to get into the classics. I have not liked any! I tried Lolita and it made me sick. Little women too slow.
I’m a big classic fan! I like above all Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell and Jane Austen.???? ?
