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!
