31 Days of Cult Classics

31 days of cult classics | Modern Mrs Darcy

I wasn’t going to join the 31 days bandwagon unless I could come up with a topic I loved, and preserved the variety of posts so many of you said you love about this blog. Well, this is it.

You won’t find any Rocky Horror Picture Show or Donnie Darko in this series. This is the Modern Mrs Darcy, after all. No, we’ll be talking literary loves, film favorites, and fabulous designs that have earned their highly specific but dedicated fans.

It’s gonna be fun.

This is day one.

Day Three: Girl power gone wrong

Day Four: It’s not a dirty little secret anymore

    This is brilliant! I am totally failing at coming up with an example of a literary cult classic… Dr. Frankenstein maybe? Can’t wait to see what you have in store!

  4. Ana says:

    I can’t wait to see what all you cover! And I must send you a hundred virtual hugs for letting me know new Downton Abbeys can be watched online!!!! Blissful! 🙂

  5. Tim says:

    If today is day 1 of 31, then what’s the first classic thing you love? I’m guessing it’s filling your friends with an overwhelming curiosity of what you will reveal first!

  6. Jennifer H says:

    The Christmas Box (Richard Paul Evans) is kind of a cult classic, isn’t it? BTW, I finally read The Secret Keeper and loved it – thanks for the recommendation.

  7. Julie says:

    I have seen the movie Grey Gardens, and it is worth watching!

    I’ve not watched Fight Club all the way through, but it’s one of my son’s favorite movies. It has a neat twist at the end, but I won’t spoil it for you!
