I'm a big fan of classics, so here's a list for that. If you guys have any recommendations, please drop them down below!
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I know people talk about this book a lot, but it's for a reason. This book deserves all the hype. The sequel isn't as good, but this book is a solid 100/10.
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. This book is a little bit more dense because of Hawthorne's flowery language, but his descriptions are part of why it's so good. It takes a while to get through, but it's worth every minute of reading.
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. This one isn't quite as classic, but still a fantastic read. It tells the story from two drastically different viewpoints, but somehow, it works.
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I will admit, I was pretty skeptical about this one, but after the initial read, I fell in love. Anna Karenina is brilliantly written, masterfully thought out, and without a doubt one of the best novels on this list.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. Anything by Charlotte Brontë is a given on a list of classics. The thing that stood out to me about Jane Eyre was the period; women were not supposed to be strong characters, but here Jane was, serving us all the quiet strength and confidence that we needed to get through the book.
