    4. Hunchback of Notre Dame
    5. Les Misérables
    6. Don Quixote
    7. Secret Garden

    I love the classics

    1. I hope I enjoy them as much as you. I know that I watched The Secret Garden, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, Tom Sawyer and enjoyed them. I also remember reading Tom in school but I thought I’d read it again. I love A Christmas Carol and watch all the movies. So that will be a reread as well.

      1. I grew up on the George C. Scott movie of A Christmas Carol- that is family tradition to watch over the Holidays.

        This year- I reread the entire Narnia series

  2. Amazing lists! I have read some of them, but not too many. And there are quite a few, I really want to read including A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and The Color Purple. Good luck with the Classic Club, I will look out for these posts going forward. 🙂

  3. I’ve read a lot from your list. My favorites include Little Prince; Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe; Great Gatsby; To Kill a Mockingbird; Moby Dick; Watership Down; Arabian Nights; and Animal Farm. I have some from your list on my list, including Helen Keller and A Tale of Two Cities. Good luck!

    1. I read the magicians nephew but never got around to the rest of the series. I have read To Kill a Mockingbird, which was excellent. Thank you. If you would like to set up a buddy read for either of those, let me know. Good luck to you on your journey as well.
