'Of the first or highest quality,class or rank: a classic piece of work.'
My definition of a classic...a book that speaks to my mind and heart, and is timeless. Classics for me from my youth include: Little Women, Call of The Wild, and White Fang. From adulthood: Gone With The Wind, The Virginian and Sea Biscuit.
I'm not sure, I'd nudge them into the classic category just yet, but the Twilight and Hunger Games Series were favorites of mine. I know they weren't everyone's cup of tea. But I think both authors are amazing story-tellers. And speaking of the Twilight Series, I'm going to get off track here a bit. I once heard a YA agent diss the series. I wouldn't have thought anything about it, as previously mentioned, its not everyone's cup of tea, if she hadn't said she'd never read it. Hmm.
Anyhoo. Enough about my favorites. What are yours?
