Other people have suggested it, but I also HIGHLY recommend The Count of Monte Cristo. It’s my all time favorite.
Brave New World!
The Sherlock Holmes stories are still my favorites!!!
Yes! Lol the gif is perfect too. Holmes is my favorite, old and new stories
I 100% agree!!
Right now I am reading the Sherlock Holmes the devils promise :3
I’m in the middle of re-reading “The Red-Headed League” Story for the third time ? I love them all!
That one is amazing! I love when Holmes laughs and covers his mouth XD he’s like “oh crap”
i absolutely love it!!
Whenever people say Holmes is cold and doesn’t laugh or smile I show them the red headed league and Jeremy Brett XD
yes!! He is quite hilarious sometimes ??
I actually tested it and in a lot of Jeremy Brett episodes his lines are word for word from the book. It is quite amazing.
My favorite Brett has to be Musgrave ritual lol
i will definitely be checking it out!!
Lol he is visiting a college friend and gets high, he is a giggling mess and it is fantastic lol
Jane Austen’s books
To Kill a Mockingbird, Their Eyes Were Watching God, Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby
1984 The Picture of Dorian Gray Gone with the Wind The catcher in the rye Anything by C.S. Lewis
Ken Follet’s books
he’s a modern author, no classical
The Outsiders The Little Princess The Secret Garden One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest ??
Ooo yeah! The outsiders is my favorite! I just read it last week ?
East of Eden John Steinbeck
Gone with the Wind Pride and Prejuidice The Great Gatsby
Alexander Dumas’ books are good: The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. I always thought the books were better than the various movies. Personal favorites: A Tale of Two Cities, Shakespeare, especially Hamlet and Macbeth, The Scarlett Letter, and The Crucible (which is a play but reads decently as a novel). Not a fan of Poe at all, but everyone else seems to like him.
i highly recommend Jane Eyre the great gatsby , Emma , Sense and sensibility , Jane Austen’s novels are absolutely worth reading !
Thanks everyone making a list
The great gatsby
No one has mentioned Of Mice and Men. Great read
The Count of Monte Cristo ❤❤❤ absolute favorite. To Kill a Mockingbird. Tale of Two Cities. Frankenstein. Grapes of Wrath!
As I Lay Dying!!! It’s written in stream of consciousness, so some people find it hard to follow, but southern gothic is one of my favorite genres ❤
