You know I am all for greaty literary books, but I admit I have not read some of these. Even back in school, I always read R.L. Stine, The Annimorphs, The Babysitters Club, Sweet Vally High, etc I hardly ever got into great english works. I tried but its just not me.

Oh gosh, I tried to read Atonement a couple of years back and I found it to be rather horrid.

I actually enjoyed To Kill A Mockingbird. The Catcher in the Rye is very "meh" to me. I don't think I'll ever see the huge appeal =]

Cass (Words on Paper) said...

I've read To Kill A Mockingbird and The Great Gatsby. Both for school. I liked both, but I hated analysing them! English class ruins everything.

Melody said...

I didn't like Atonement either. I could have added some of your other books to my list (Kite Runner, Geisha)

Daisy said...

Go read Pride and Prejudice! I love that book so much, and now you have it on your list of shame there's no going back really ;)

danya said...

Seconding Daisy here - definitely pick up Pride and Prejudice as soon as you can! It's absolutely excellent :)

Lu said...

Will do :)

ConnieGirl said...

Oooooh so many of these you really should move up on your TBR list! Pride and Prejudice, although cliche, is actually really excellent, and Kite Runner and Memoirs of a Geisha are really excellent, too, and Catcher in the Rye is one of my all-time favorites.

I enjoyed reading To Kill a Mockingbird in high school. I want to pick it up again and see if I still like it. I also mostly enjoyed The Kite Runner. But that's all I've read from your list as well... man this is shaming me.

To Kill a Mockingbird and P&P are actually two of those classic books that aren't as tedious or boring as you'd expect them to be. And Memoirs of a Geisha is very good, even if the ending is a bit frustrating.

Lu said...

Putting all of these on my wishlist on bookmooch/bookdepository ect :)

readerbuzz said...

All my best readers at my school would always check out War of the Worlds. It was always returned unread. Just take a look at the very first sentence...daunting!

You've got some great books on this list. I should have added Atonement to mine too. Memoirs of a Geisha and The Kite Runner are both fabulous. You would really enjoy them. Same with P & P. Austen is at her best in that one, I think.
