Reading the Classics Update #2: Down the rabbit hole.

As you may or may not remember (or know) I decided this year I’ll be reading at least one classic book per month. I told this tomy mother a few weeks ago and she gave me her list of classics she thinks i should read… now let me tell you a little about my mother’s expectations….

She thinks i should read stuff like, The Iliad, Faust, The idiot, War and Peace.

Now, those weren’t the kind of classics i was hopping to read, but something more interesting. So i decided the kind of classics i will be reading are more “original”. They aren’t necessarily the greatest books of all time, they also aren’t all books written for adults.

Yes, i decided in my search for interesting classic i’ll be adding some childhood classics.

Or those which should be childhood classics, because the first one i have in mind never touched my house and that’s because my mom never liked the story, or the movie (which i never saw).

The first “children” book i’ll be reading in my classics list is no other than; Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

I bought this copy a while a go thinking i’ll read it one day, i just didn’t know exactly when… but hey! it’s time to read it, don’t you think?

Yes, i did watch Tim Burton’s adaptation but it was so long ago i don’t remember anything.

So i thought i would be a fun and strange read since i never heard the real story.

What do you think?

Have you read the book? Did you like it? Do you have any recommendations for Classics i should read? Leave your comment down below!
