Top Ten Classics Every Book Lover should Read a bloggers beauty

Even as a child I loved to read. To be lost in the adventure of another world, escaping from the reality of a breaking home was a comfort to me from a young age. I never had to be nagged to do my reading homework and would often have more than one book on the go at one time.
Even as a teen my English-Lit studies were always the first to be done. I found it hard to get all my thoughts an opinion into essays though, and that hindered me a little in my exams but it didn’t stop me reading.

Over time I have lost count of the many many books I have read. Some good, some a struggle to get through and that’s one of the reasons I started ABBBC. However, the writing down of thoughts (I felt) didn’t make it thrive to well. But that didn’t stop me. If anything it was evidence to myself I had done it and a list of read books was, therefore, compiled.

Then along came 2018 and I discovered the Goodreads App which really helped me to log each book and even challenge myself to read more. I struggled a bit with setting time for myself when Evelyn was born and this helped me to set aside time.

As of right now I have 113 on my ’Read’ shelf and 118 on my ‘Want to Read’ shelf’. However, I’m sure there are much more I have read.

Until recently it never occurred to me in the books I read, how little Classics I had read. Those such as Frankenstein and Little Women had not been found on my bookshelf and I shocked myself with the lack of (what I would call) ‘Book Basics’. I feel like there are certain books people should read in their life time and the Classics are one of them. Those such as Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird and 1984 should be read by all those who would call themselves a ‘reader’. They’re like a staple item you put in your basket. Don’t get me wrong I have a good portion of those on my list but there are still some that I need to get through.
Since discovering these things I am well and truly in the process of educating myself.

I thought I would compile my Top Ten Classics Every Book Lover should Read, If anything but to have it all in one place but also to educate.
