10 Books that would be on my Syllabus if I taught (fun to read) Classics 101

Over the past couple years I have been making a point to read more classics. I love YA but sometimes I need a break and I want to read something that has stood the test of time and lived long enough to be deemed a classic. I loved the idea of this weeks top 10 Tuesday post so without further ado I give you my syllabus for (fun to read) Classics 101!

1 The Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
2 Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
3 Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

4 To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
5 The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

6 The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
7 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
8 The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins

9 Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
10 Animal Farm by George Orwell


  1. I haven't read a ton of classics, but there are several on your list that I should read. I've thought about exploring JA since I like several of the movies based on her books, but just haven't yet. anyway great list!

  2. Great choices! :) I definitely need to read more classics! I have read a few of these. I really like The Secret Garden and Alice in Wonderland. I would really like to read The Great Gatsby and Pride and Prejudice. :)

    1. Gatsby is potentially my favorite book of all time, it is a definite must read!

  3. How did i not also think of The Portrait of Dorian Gray?? That book belongs on the syllabus.
