Sometimes the classics are actually as good as everyone says. So I'm giving myself and y'all an opportunity to talk about our favorites.
I think my enjoyment is augmented by movie and web series adaptations and Tumblr interpretations, but the characters are still compelling.
4. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
One of the few books I read for school and actively enjoyed.
5. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
I loved this as a child.
6. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
Once you get past the unnecessary historical descriptions and the like, this massive tome is actually pretty good! It wouldn't be such an awesome musical if there wasn't something good about the source material.
7. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
Loved it as a kid, went through a phase where I vehemently disliked it for some reason, and now I'm back to loving it (thanks to Green Gables Fables and Jonathan Crombie, primarily).
8. Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace
Such a childhood favorite.
9. Dubliners by James Joyce
Thanks, Dr. Strait.
So I wanna know - what are your favorite classics??
