Day 10 – Favorite classic book
I couldn’t choose between these two.
East of Eden by John Steinbeck
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Admittedly, I don’t love many classics. I try to enrich myself by reading one or two classics a year, but I rarely enjoy them. I certainly appreciate them. But these are two books that I love and can read over and over again. East of Eden is such a rich story that pulls from the biblical tales, but retells them in such a twisted and character-driven way. I think it’s just beautiful. Little Women is one of the first books I fell in love with, and the first that really helped me establish my love for books about sisterly bonds and relationships. While I wish I could be more like Jo, I am definitely more like Meg.
Are there any classics that you can just pick up over and over again?
