(are these Classics?)

Nicole's Top Five

Truthfully, I'm not a big reader of Classics. But if I were to pick one up, these are the top 5 on my list. 

1. 1984 - I have tried reading this book a couple times already, although not very hard. I'd like to read it some day and see what Orwell predicted about the future and how close he was. Besides, it's supposed to be a good story. I own it somewhere... 
2. The Catcher in the Rye - I feel like just about everyone has read this book so I want to join the club. 
3. Catch-22 - Don't ask me what I read in High School because I haven't read this either. This is another one that I feel is really popular and it is necessary for me to read. 
4. Gone With the Wind - This is one of my favorite movies and yet I haven't read the book. That is like a sin in the book world. 
5. Nicholas and Alexandra - My mother adores this book. She actually has this musty old copy stored somewhere in our basement. Not only would it make my mother happy if I read this, but I also happen to be obsessed with Imperial Russia so I imagine I will like it. 

Ashley's Top Five

1. 1984 - I agree with Nicole on wanting to read this one.  I have never actually tried but I hear so many references to it that I feel like I need to get to it. 
2. Animal Farm- Another classic that I feel like I should eventually read.
3. Pride and Predijuce- I loved the movies and have seen them multiple times but never have actually read the book cover to cover before. 
4. Dracula - I read the abridged children's classic version of this one and remember really enjoying it so I would love to give the real version a try
5.To Kill a Mocking Bird- I have read this one before in high school and absolutely loved it but I would like to reread this classic.

What are your top ten?
