Airchair BEA: Classic Literature (Classics)

Design credit: Nina of Nina Reads. 
Ah the Classics...the ups and downs,timeless entertainment and epic experience(s)! I do agree that it is sometimes misunderstood,some under or overrated by critics but found their place in comforts of so many readers(all ages) around the world .I think this is the one of many ultimate as I may say "award" many writers/authors dream of their works being Completely Legendary! (hence Classic).

I definitely need to read more of these...I didn't really particularly like this section before I found it boring and way too time consuming but I still gave it a shot! and found out that most of my favorite timeless tales are here as if some of my life story and answers could be found within this category haha! I fell in love with this genre due to The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.I recently finished Vol. I.I must admit it took me awhile to read it but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT! XD

There's just something about it that definitely grabbed me the first time I read the blurb and the first story of Sherlock deciphering Watson,meeting him the first time by jove! he's so clever!.(I found out all about it after watching an anime called Detective Conan I didn't even know such could exist but it did! :O)

Oh wow it's so amazingly EPIC! every case full of mystery solved in a matter of seconds or so. If Sherlock is real for sure there would definitely be extremely low-No crime rates everywhere!The best and my all time favorite fictional detective of all time!

So yeah if you like Mystery/Thriller definitely check out Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Bits of romance and characters (full of character): any works by Jane Austen.I highly recommend *cough* Pride and Prejudice *cough*.Wuthering heights by Emily Bronte never fails to make me cry every single time! the epic love of Cathy and Heathcliff T_T .Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, makes me want to be this secret philanthropist and help a lot of people as much as I can and of course, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, This is the first book I've read and re-read this year (same year!yeah it rarely happens) I read it due to the upcoming/now released movie adaptation (in which I should watch asap) I'm still not sure if I should count it as an all time favorite since I read it twice but it must count for something right? anyway, these books taught me a lot of stuff like to empathize and appreciate things in life etc.

I think the classic genre is a must got to-read at least once in your life to experience the wonders of it all!

  1. I love both Charles Dickens and other writers from the classics era. I have a very special place in my heart for Shakespeare, however. And next year, I'll have the chance to go to England and see several plays with one of my English literature classes!

    I look forward to getting to know you better during the Armchair BEA!


    1. OMG! That's so awesome Lexxie and thank you so much for commenting. I'd also love to visit England some time soon and I hope you have a wonderful time!

  2. I only recently downloaded The Great Gatsby....wanting to read it before seeing the new adaptation. I saw the 1970s movie, but somehow missed reading the book.

    I have some favorite classics that I read long ago...here's MY ARMCHAIR BEA POST

      I'll surely check out your post and thanks for commenting!

  3. I think you've got some great suggestions, here! I'm also working my way through the complete Sherlock Holmes, and totally loving it. I'm not quite finished with Volume 1, but I'm getting there! Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is up next, for me. :)

    1. Thank you and Yey! it's quite a journey this volume but I'm definitely looking forward to volume II.Have you seen any tv adaptation(s) of Sherlock holmes? I like the old & new ones for they're quite faithful to the story & nice to see them live in action XD
