Classics, classics and classics again!

My favorite in English language so far is the controversial novel the great Gatsby by Fitzgerald. Don't forget to mention Oscar Wilde's only novel, the picture of Dorian Gray.

If you're looking for recommendations then I'd recommend checking out some BookTube videos! Depending on what you're interested in I can recommend a few different people's channels?

Interesting! I'm going to be studying Gatsby for my A level in English literature. At my school we are comparing the great gatsby with The Rotters Club, which is absolutely hilarious.

Have you read Jane Eyre? It was the first classic I ever read and I loved it!

I don't know who to recommend for that sort of thing, most channels focus on YA. It might be worth just having a look around the internet, perhaps going on Goodreads.

Just some excerpts in English lessons, unfortunately! and the real pity: it is not in my novel collection.

I love 'Ransom my heart' by Meg Cabot. It's not the most intellectual read but it's such a sweet and satisfying romance novel that I can't help reading it over and over.

I would recommend Dostoyevsky to anyone! The Idiot is my favourite, but the novella The Double is spectacular too. He really is a spellbinding author, and reading his books is a unique, disturbing, compulsive experience.

I really like Persuasion by Jane Austen (but Sense and Sensibility is great too), and for even lighter reading Miss Marple and Poirot are always good 😊
