    • Ah yeah, how could I forget Great Gatsby. And Slaughterhouse5 is good too. (Fitzgerald)

  • The Count of Monte Cristo.
    War and Peace.
    The Picture of Dorian Gray.
    Dracula
    Paradise Lost and one of my favourites, the Sorrows of Young Werther.

    Did you know? That the Sorrows of Young Werther was originally banned in Europe because it led to a cult of young men committing suicide.

    • 1984 was not the business. I'm sorry, but I really disliked that book.

  • The unabridged versions of Les Miserables and War and Peace, Animal Farm, anything by Mark Twain.

    • Did you really enjoy War and Peace? I found it somehow a very "monotone" read.. Perhaps I was to young though.

    • It was easier to read than Les Miserables, that's for sure.

  • Catcher in the Rye is a great book for a teen. First read it when I was 15. I was really moved. It really spoke to me.

What Girls Said 7

  • Austin: Persuasion, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park... Everyone reads Pride & Prejudice and thinks... this is love. But once you read Persuasion, what Elizabeth and Darcy have is nothing compared to Anne and Wentworth.

    Maya Angelou: I know why the caged bird sings (you'll cry)
    Harper Lee: To kill a mockingbird (you'll cry here too)
    Lois Lowry: The Giver (definitely cry)

    Lmao. Just read these with a box of tissues nearby :D

  • Moby Dick
    It's long winded but has incredible characters... QueeQueg and Ahab are two of my favorite literary characters ever, so yeah... I love Moby Dick.
