September 12: Throwback Freebie: Ten Books I Loved During The First Year I Started My Blog, Favorite Books Published 5 or 10 or 15 Years Ago, Ten Older Books I Forgot How Much I Loved, etc. etc. Tweak however you want!
Let’s throw it waaay back, shall we? Top Ten Books from the 19th Century.
- Persuasion; Jane Austen. My second favorite Austen, for variety.
2. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; Lewis Carol. A trip.
3. Oliver Twist; Charles Dickens. Can you have some more?
4. The Three Musketeers; Alexandre Dumas. Every book needs some sword fights.
5. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes; Arthur Conan Doyle. Witty and short. Holmes is kind of terrible, but still entertaining.
6. Frankenstein; Mary Shelley. We’re all a little bit the monster, I think.
7. Treasure Island; Robert Lois Stevenson. Pirates! Arrr!
8. Dracula; Bram Stoker. You rather have to admire this old school vampire story. It’s creepy and gothic, and monstrous.
9. Around the World in Eighty Days; Jules Verne. Packed full of adventure.
10. The Picture of Dorian Gray; Oscar Wilde. A really terrible character that gets what’s coming to him.
