Hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far! Today I am going to complete the Classics Book Tag. I was super excited when I found it on Its a Books World because I have always loved reading the classics. Even when I was little, I could always be found reading an abridged version of Anne of Green Gables or Little Women. I hope you find a few classics to add to your TBR, and let me know your favorite classics in the comments!
1. An Overhyped Classic You Really Didn't Like
This is a rather hard question because I have enjoyed most of the classics I have read. I guess I would say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. While I didn't "dislike" the novel, it was not one of my favorites. The characters were intriguing, but the story never really resonated with me.
2. Favorite Time Period to Read About
Okay, so I absolutely LOVE reading classics set during the Medieval times. I know, a tad basic, but I adore the idea of knights, kings and queens. I have also enjoyed many classics which take place during the late 1800s.
3. Favorite Fairy Tale
To be honest, asking me to pick a favorite fairy tale is like asking a parent to choose a favorite child. It's an impossible decision. I will say a few (there are many more) of my favorites include Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and Rapunzel. I have many precious memories of reading these stories when I was little, so they hold special places in my heart.
4. Which classic are you most embarrassed about not reading it yet?
There are actually a few. I am rather ashamed to admit that I have not yet read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.
5. Top Five Classics You Would Like to Read Soon
1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
2. Les Miserables by Rolland Livingstone
3. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
4. Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
5. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
6. Favorite Modern Book/Series Based on a Classic
I have two favorite books based on classics. First is Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell. Additionally, I love The Looking Glass Wars series by Frank Beddor. Unhooked is inspired by Peter Pan and The Looking Glass Wars series is inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
7. Favorite Movie Version/TV Series Based on a Classic
Definitely Clueless. It is an incredibly funny modern version of Jane Austen's Emma.
8. Worst Classic-to-Movie Adaption
To be completely honest, I have not seen enough classic-to-movie adaptions to comment on this because I have enjoyed all of the ones I have seen. If I see any in the future, I'll update this post!
9. Favorite Editions You Would Like to Collect More Classics From
I have been eyeing the Barnes and Noble leather bound editions for YEARS. I don't have any from the collection right now, but they are beautiful and I would love to add a few to my personal library!
10. An Underhyped Classic You Would Recommend to Everyone
Alright, so I don't know if this one is exactly "underhyped", but I feel anyone who enjoys and treasures reading should check out Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
