Top Ten Tuesday: Classic Books I've Read & Want to Read

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - This is my most favorite classic read ever and also my most favorite book by Jane Austen. This is the book that made me fall in love with her, and I could just read it over and over again. Plus, Mr. Darcy. Enough said.  I love the movie for the book as well!

2. Emma by Jane Austen - My second favorite Jane Austen novel. I love the characters in the novel, especially Emma and Mr. Knightley. Emma is such a naive and flawed character, you can't help but love her. And Mr. Knightley... swoooooon. ;) Also, the BBC adaptation of the book is one of my most favorite things ever to watch. :)

3. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen - The last Austen novel on my list, I promise!! Sense and Sensibility is yet another of my favorite classic novels. I love everything about this book, the characters, the setting... everything!

4. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins - I read this book as part of a book club read a few years back, and I just really enjoyed the book SO much more than I expected to. It's super mysterious. Check it out sometime!

5. The Princess Bride by William Goldman - I really loved reading this book when I read it a few years ago. It's definitely one that I can see myself re-reading over and over again. I finally watched the movie recently and loved it too!

1. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott - I think I am the only person in the world that hasn't read this book yet! I've heard good things about it, and I'm super curious. I hope that I can read it soon!

2. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier - This is one of my moms favorite books, and I've heard from others how much they loved it as well. Super excited to read this one in the future!

3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - I actually tried to read this book a while back, but the timing wasn't good for me, and I couldn't get into the book. I'd love to try it again sometime.

4. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - I've had this book on my to-read list for quite a while now, and I'm hoping that I can get to it soon.

5. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath - This is yet another book that has been on my to-read list for a while, as I hear about it EVERYWHERE and I'm super curious to finally read it and see what it's all about.

What's on your Top Ten list this week?
