So, if you haven’t already guessed, I love reading. I love old books, new books, long, short. It doesn’t matter, I’m a huge bookworm. Since moving into our own place, me and Matt have had the freedom (and space!) to fill our home with as much of ‘us’ as we like, and that means a huge collection of books.
I do love reading the classics. Most of my ‘all time favourite books’ are classic novels! Recently though, I’ve been going through a huge YA phase. I think that’s because I’ve recently found the bookish community on social media (WordPress, Instagram) and a lot of the accounts I follow do tend to revolve around YA books. I feel like the phase, for me, is coming to a close, and the giant, beautiful hard back collection of classic novels on my bookshelf have been staring at me for way too long!
Classic Novels I Can’t Wait To Read!
I’m a huge science fiction fan. These have been on my reading list for years and years now, and now whenever I think about any of the I get butterflies because I’m so excited to read them!
Can I call myself a bookworm if I haven’t ever read a Jane Austen book? I also can’t allow myself to watch any film adaptations until I’ve read the book, so there’s that too. This is one of the ‘ultimate classics’ that is on the tip of everybody’s tongue and I can’t believe I haven’t read it.
I love Gothic Horror, I love horror, I love vampires, I love history. I have a feeling I’ll really like this book.
I’ve never read an Agatha Christie mystery, but I have always wanted to. Since Doctor Who did an episode based around her, I’ve been even more eager. I’d say this novel was one of the more famous ones, so I guess I’ll start there!
I haven’t read the book, I haven’t seen the film. I think the idea of the 1920’s is beautiful, and I can only imagine how descriptive of the time the novel is! I’ve heard quite a lot of it, and I vaguely remember being told a huge spoiler but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it just the same!
