Top Ten Tuesday (23)

Happy Tuesday! Today I've decided to participate in Top Ten Tuesday, formerly hosted by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish, now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today's topic is: 

Back to School/Learning Freebie
... which means I get to pick, and I'm choosing my Favorite Classics/"Required Reading"!

A Room with a View  Night (The Night Trilogy, #1)  Of Mice and Men

Animal Farm  Pride and Prejudice  The Giver (The Giver, #1)
A Midsummer Night's Dream  Jane Eyre
The Island of Eternal Love  The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

I'm actually not that into "the classics" and could barely get through any of the required reading in school (despite having a deep love for reading). But these books (and more, these are just ten) are incredible. I highly recommend!


  1. I was the same in school. I loathe the classics which makes me an odd reader I guess! I only had a very select few, less than 10 and likely less than 5 unless we count fairy tales as classics! Lol!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. I actually liked most of the books I read as part of required reading, though it took me until college to really love Shakespeare. :) I agree with Of Mice and Men and Night.


  3. I was never a fan of required reading. There were a couple books that I did like: The Outsiders, Fahrenheit 451, Airborn by Kenneth Oppel, Freedom Writers. I also liked Shakespeare- but only when I was in high school- The Taming of the Shrew is probably my favorite.

    There were two books that I absolutely disliked that I had to read for school... The Hiding Place by Carrie Ten Boom- this person could not write at all... even though she had important story to tell. And Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe- it was just a hard book to get through...

    i keep telling myself I should read classics but i can't seem to get into them.

  4. It's fun to see how the required reading changed since I was in school, Lena. :-) I did, however, get to take a movie trip and see Taming of the Shrew for my drama class.

  5. I loved Jane Eyre

  6. Look at that! We both had Huck Finn and Animal Farm on our lists. I doubt I would have read these book had they not been required, but they were among some of the ones I enjoyed.

  7. I couldn't get into any of my required reading in school either, despite my love of reading. It's different when you're forced to read something!

  8. I've only read a couple of these and they are amazing, especially Night. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to check out some of the ones I haven't read yet.

  9. I remember reading "The Giver". I actually really enjoyed it so much that I recently picked up the sequel from a thrift store.
