Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gems of Classic Literature

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share hidden gems–in other words, books that we believe aren’t discussed or read often enough. As per usual, I’m going to focus on classics that I believe deserve to be read more, discussed more, and highlighted more, both within and beyond the classroom setting.

What classics do you wish were discussed more often? What do you thinks of the books on my list? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

HOLLY

  1. Great list! Love North and South, and I really want to read Between the Acts. My favourite neglected classics are Mary Elizabeth Braddon’s Lady Audley’s Secret and Anne Bronte’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, both are wonderful and important classics I wish people talked about more!

  2. I added “The Lost World” to my TBR earlier this summer when you were talking about it as the original Jurassic Park. πŸ™‚ You always have such good classic lit suggestions. πŸ™‚

  3. Ooooh I had to watch the tv series adaptation for North & South when I took a course for European History last year… and through that, I learned about how different northern and southern English accents are! I needed to put on subtitles for the show πŸ˜‚ Anyways, I’ve always wanted to read North & South, so thank you for bringing it back to the forefront of my mind again πŸ™‚
