you forgot northanger abbey and mansfield park by jane austen!
i'm an austen fan :D great looking list!
Wha-- Oh! We did :D I just added those to the list! (Haha, sorry, it's late for me)
(Btw we = me and my friend Sarah who helped me create this list)
i read 47 of those books!!!
That's awesome! But you might want to recount... Some more books have been added :)
For some reason we didn't have anything by John Green on it so that had to be fixed :D
*copies, paste to word document, saves* Thank you for the list! I want to read more classics or must read books :D
And that's exactly why this list was started!
Thank you for making me smile while I attempt to tell my teacher that I learned something this semester in his class... Stupid final exams...
This list is fabulous, and amazingly extensive. But might I suggest Faulkner (Sound and the Fury)? Also, Milan Kundera (The Unbearable Lightness of Being)?
:) I definitely need to add some (ha, or most?) of these to my own list... So little time...
Although Jude the Obscure is by far my favorite of Hardy's, you probably should add Mayor of Casterbridge... = major classic.
I've read and loved The Catcher in the Rye and all of John Green's books (except TFIOS, of course).
I've read The Great Gatsby, Animal Farm, To Kill a Mockingbird, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, The Giver, Fahrenheit 451, The Bell Jar, and Beowulf for school, and have had lukewarm to negative opinions on them (except for The Giver, which I'd probably give a 7.5 or 8).
I've also read Ender's Game, A Wrinkle in Time, The War of the Worlds, and the first four Harry Potter books (I didn't like the fourth one, that's why I stopped), and they were all okay.
I'm reading Jane Eyre and Interview With a Vampire, but I'm not really enjoying either.
I gave up on Life of Pi and Little Women.
So yeah, I'm unfortunately a little too picky a reader. But I also think that an essential book is Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.
