Reader Participation Post! Favourite classics

In preparation for a future post, I'd like to know some of your favourite classic novels.  Some of mine include:

  • Jane Eyre
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Mrs. Dalloway
Wow.  I'm very girly.  Girliness is not a requirement in your suggestions!  So please, tell me, what are your favourite classics?


  1. Oh I'm curious!

    Here are my pics off the top of my head!

    Little Women; Black Beauty; A Little Princess; The Woman in White; Anne of Green Gables

  2. Mazo De La Roche's (Canadian author) series (16 books) called the Jalna Series or the Whiteoak Chronicles. It covers 100 years of the Whiteoak family from the time a governess came to the home and married Whiteoak. It follows her life to very old age and includes all the generations. It was a fantastic series I read in the 70's but were started in 1927.

  3. Henry James' Portrait of a Lady

    I didn't read it until college, and was blown away by it. Also love Dickens' Bleak House, among many of his others.

    And yes, I second Jane Eyre and Little Women!

  4. I'd have to say:

    Jane Eyre
    Jane Eyre
    and...oh! Jane Eyre

    Best book ever ;)
