1987 is the year that I was born into. It was a good year if I do say so myself. I mean I graced your presence. Something must have gone right. Gosh where did that confidence come from?
ANYWAY, today we are talking about books that were written before you were born for Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl). Books that you have read or that you still want to read. Honestly with classics this shouldn’t be too hard.
Pride and Prejudice (1813)
Not a fantasy but I have always enjoyed this story.
Of course Frankenstein had to be on here. Unfortunately another classic I couldn’t quite appreciate.
Is that enough before my time? Honestly I read Ivanhoe on a wim during my teen years when I couldn’t find a decent English book in the school library. I don’t think much is still remembered.
The start of the vampire craze, well mostly. It was okay. It struggled to hold my attention in places.
The War of the Worlds (1898)
In 2019 I read a few Sci-Fi Classics. The War of the Worlds was one of them. Interesting concept. Boring Read.
The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902)
This is probably my favorite Sherlock Holmes story.
I know Orwell is much loved but this was just okay for me. Animal Farm too by the way.
An interesting short story that I managed to read in 2019 as well.
The Dispossessed (1974)
Not my kind of book but good to have read it.
The Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (1979)
A fun read that I never realized during reading just how old this really was.
