Top Ten Tuesday: Classics I Would Be Willing To Read

 Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish

Here are my top ten classics I would willing to read:
(Confession:  I don't really like many classics.  I don't know what it is.  I feel like a loser for admitting this, but it's true.  Here is a list of "classics" I would like to try sometime.)

 1. White Fang by Jack London
I loved the 1990's movie!

White Fang

 2. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
I have heard nothing but good things.  I don't tend to reach for sci-fi, but I would be willing to give this a try!

Ender's Game (The Ender Quintet, #1)

3. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
I've read the Lord of the Rings trilogy, so it seems like the responsible thing to do.

 The Hobbit (Middle-Earth Universe)

4. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
Food, glorious food! Who doesn't like a good orphan-turned-thief story?

 Oliver Twist  

 5. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
Swashbuckling...with muskets!  (Seriously though...they are called the musketeers, but known for swords...)

The Three Musketeers

6. Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
A couple of Ray Bradbury's short stories left last impressions on me as a kid: One Summer Day and The Veldt.  Also, I really liked Fahrenheit 541. 

Something Wicked This Way Comes

7. The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain
Another well known story.

The Prince and the Pauper

8. Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne
Or something Jules Verne.

Around the World in Eighty Days

9. A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
If nothing else, then to imagine Sherlock as Benedict Cumberbatch.

A Study in Scarlet  (Sherlock Holmes, #1)

10. My Man Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
This series has always seemed very charming.

My Man Jeeves (Jeeves, #1)



  1. Great picks! Ender's Game is one of my favorites and I'm hoping to continue on with the series soon.

  2. Well, you know my feelings on Jack London haha! And I can't believe you haven't read The Hobbit!! Especially because you've read LotR! I grew up reading The Hobbit, so I've always loved a lot. I really enjoyed LotR, but The Hobbit is a lot more accessible and is just a generally enchanting story, so it feels like a completely different sort of fantasy. Go read it for sure!
