  1. I've always been curious about Ivanhoe but never read it. I should really do that. I have enjoyed the movie version I think it's really interesting.

    1. Which Ivanhoe film version do you watch? There's three popular ones. I have always enjoyed the one with Anthony Andrews but I know there's a more recent one that a lot of people enjoy that I hope to watch soon.

  3. Macbeth is my favorite Shakespeare play hands down. I think part of it is that when I first read it for school the teacher I had that year was absolutely fantastic. Great list! I've got both Oscar Wilde and Little Women coming up on my reading list soon.
