The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme with a prompt featuring a book related question. The hop begins on a Friday and ends on a Thursday and should hopefully give people the opportunity to learn something new about the blogger.
The Book Blogger Hop can be found on Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and obviously my answers can be found here!
My book amigo’s this is your lucky day because I am giving you not one, not two but THREE classic novel’s that I haven’t read and have always wanted to.
Ready? In no particular order…
Everything I know about book one is based from this song. OK… and a movie version starring Tom Hardy.
Yes book one (if you haven’t guessed) is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
Why haven’t I read it yet? Well, I read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and, sorry to say, I hated it and it unfairly put me off the rest of the Bronte sisters.
Let’s carry on with relating a song to the book shall we?
Look, I never said this was a high class blog. But you’ve got to love this video, right?!
If you hadn’t guessed book two then it’s Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
Why haven’t I read it yet? Honestly, I’m a bit scared to. Not because I think the book will be scary but actually I really want to love this book and I’m worried that I’ll find it over complicated and difficult and so won’t.
It’s not a song but the opening to one of my favourite movies of the 90’s.
If you didn’t know then let me educate you. Clueless was based off of Emma by Jane Austen and is one of the best examples of how a story can transcend well… time and space.
I adore Clueless. It’s funny, endearing and Cher is a sweetie who is a well meaning meddler into other people’s romantic lives but gets it wrong more often than gets it right.
Why haven’t I read it yet? Well, I’ve seen Clueless so….
Only joking, I live in Jane Austen country so you’d think I would be tripping over myself to have read all her books but because I live in Jane Austen country I have avoided most like the plague. It’s not my ‘type’ of book so haven’t dipped a toe in those quaint Regency waters but I guess I should start.
I owe it to Paul Rudd.

Are you shocked that I haven’t read any of the above classics? Have you read them? What do you think of them if you have?
Are there any classics you haven’t read and if yes, what’s the thing that’s stopping you so far?
