Top Ten British Literature Books I'll Be Reading This School Year 

I moderate a literature co-op with my high school kids and some other families. This year we are covering British Literature, so this is our book list for the year. Fun!


The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer

Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift

A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle by Arthur Conan Doyle

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

Lord of the Flies by William Golding


  1. I've only read Pygmalion on this list, but I enjoyed it okay. I am currently making my way through Pride and Prejudice right now. I'm kind of wishing I would have tried to read it before I saw the movie with Keira and Matthew. I have been interested in reading an Agatha Christie book when I was younger, but I'm not into much of reading mysteries much anymore like I did when I was younger.


  2. Great Top 10! I remember having to read Beowulf in high school. I was surprised that I actually enjoyed it. We also had to watch the movie that had just came out...Good timing I guess ;) My Top Ten Tuesday!
