10 American Classics You Really Shouldn't Miss

Today I'm guest posting for Jessica at Quirky Bookworm, one of my favorite blogs for bibliophiles, about my 10 favorite American classics.

Here's a snippet:
Hi, I’m Keri from Growing in His Glory, and I’m honored to be guest posting today. Before I had children, I was a doctoral student in literature, and, needless to say, I read a lot of books, some that I would recommend to any and everyone I could, others I wondered why I’d wasted my time on them.

That being said, there are some amazing American literary works out there that beg to be devoured, and while I love a thrilling detective novel myself, the classics are classic for a reason and they deserve our attention.

In this post, I will share with you my top 10 favorite American classics. My hope is that you will expand your literary horizons and give at least one of these books a chance. You just might find a new favorite author!

Come by and check out my post to find out my favorites and share yours!!

Blessings to you,

Linking up to these lovely parties.

  1. I have not read a single one, but want to expand my reading of the classics. I have already been thinking of reading Moby Dick...

    1. Salena, Moby Dick is amazing but very long. I would encourage you to start with Of Mice & Men. It's short but so poignant. I cry every time. Thank you for commenting :)

  2. Great choices! I like how you set up the contrast between The Awakening and The Age of Innocence.
    Makes me want to re-read both of them back to back.

    1., too, Frances. It's been awhile since I've read those books, but I think both have such intriguing female protagonists.

  3. Thanks again for the guest post Keri! Perhaps I will actually read some classics next year-- and I'll start with some from your list! :)
