Top Ten Tuesday- American Classics

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish blog.

TTT is taking a well-deserved break until August 15th, so I will be making my own lists- or recycling old topics from before I had this blog- during the hiatus.

This week I decided to feature my Top Ten American Classics in honor of July Fourth.



1. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith



2. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath



3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott 



4. The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton 



5. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee



6. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston 



7. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald



8. The Color Purple by Alice Walker 



9. We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson



10. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell


What are some of your favorite American classics?

  1. Great idea! I may do this too until fall (if you don’t mind me copying…) Some favorites on your list include A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Little Women, Gone With the Wind and We Have Always Lived in the Castle!


  2. OOOO, I don’t care how creepy Merricat is, I LOVE We Have Always Lived in This Castle, I consider it the best of Jackson’s works.
    The Bell Jar was such a touching read for me. Plath’s voice definitely comes out in her writing.
    I look forward to reading more from you soon… Happy Reading 🙂
