An over-hyped classic you really didn’t like:
For me, reading this at another time would have probably been better. It put me in an odd mental space.
Favorite time period to read about: Tudor era and Victorian era
Favorite fairy-tale: Fairy tales are something that I don’t know too much about, but I would like to read more of them one day. The Little Mermaid was one of my favorite stories growing up.
What is the most embarrassed classic you haven’t read yet:
Top 5 classics you would like to read (soon):
Favorite modern book/series based on a classic:
I still haven’t read the current book, but I probably will one day. These books aren’t perfect, but they’re an interesting retelling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and also the zombie genre.
Favorite movie version/TV-series based on a classic:
Another book that I’ve never read, but I love the film version and Bates Motel ended up being so much better than I ever thought it would be when I first saw the previews. Originally I didn’t care for it being set outside of the lates 1950s and then I watched season one on Netflix. Now it’s one of my current favorite shows.
Worst classic to movie adaptation:
Really thought that I would like the twist, but I just didn’t love it. And I’m sure I’ve seen much worse, but this was the first thing that came to mind.
Favorite edition(s) you’d like to collect more classics from: Everyman’s Library. I love this collection’s design.
An under-hyped classic you’d recommend to everyone: Would We Have Always Lived in the Castle by considered under-hyped? It’s short, so you might as well read it, and it doesn’t feel that old to me, so it’s great if you’re not sure about classics.
I tag: YOU! Anyone who wants to do this. I’d love to see your posts and get some recommendations and hear your favorites and least favorites. This is such a great and fun post.
