So come join me on my great classics read festival! Just check out some of the posts below, leave comments on the reviews, read a book that catches your attention, or maybe even suggest a classic to add to my list.
I've already read (and reviewed):
Daddy Long-Legs by Jean Webster
My review of Daddy Long-Legs by Jean Webster can be found here. Long story short - this is a book that no child should grow up without.
A Little Princess by Frances H. Burnett
My review of A Little Princess by Frances H. Burnett can be found here. Long story short - some books stay with you your whole life. And A Little Princess is definitely one of them.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
My review of Jane Austen's wildly famous Pride and Prejudice can be found here. Long story short - this book helped me realize what makes a classic different from a normal book: the fact that it deals with basic human emotions. This book is special because of Austen's brilliant characters, good plot, and vibrant writing.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan DoyleThere are some books that should be read once by everyone - whether or not they like the genre of fiction or whether or not they like the author. Read this book for Sherlock Holmes, the character, and for the different (fantastic) ways in which basic human emotions manifest themselves in this book. Click here for my review of the book.
Good Wives by Louisa May Alcott
Some books will come back to haunt you every now and then. (Generally in a good way) And Good Wives is definitely one of them. A sweet, heartwarming adventure of four sisters as they struggle with life and love as wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers - it is a book that will enrich your life.
