1. Jane Austen's work
I was doubting whether I would count Jane Austen's novels as 6 separate books, but in the end decided to just put all of her work together on the first place of this top 10. I'm a big Jane Austen fan and her books are definitely, without a doubt, my favourite classic novels of all time.
Next to Jane Austen, I'm also a fan of the work of the Bronte sisters. 'Wuthering Heights' is another classic with a romantic tale at its core and I can honestly say I've never read anything quite like it!
I have to be honest and say I first fell in love with the Disney film 'Alice in Wonderland' before I read the book, but Lewis Carroll's classic definitely deserves a place in this top 10.
Another one of my favourite books of all time!
Another Bronte sister in this top 10; 'Jane Eyre' is one of the first classic English novels I read while I was at secondary school and it's a story that has always stayed with me.
I'm a big Christmas fan, it's my favourite time of year, so it's no wonder this book is part of this top 10!
I remember having to read Elizabeth Gaskell's 'North and South' for one of my university courses, and this led me to another one of her novels, 'Wives and Daughters.' I ended up writing my thesis partly about this book, so it holds a special place in my heart!
Another classic of which I actually first saw the film, which led to me reading the classic book and falling in love with it.
