    Okay, Jane Austen is amazing, so definitely read Pride and Prejudice and Emma. Frankenstein is literally my least favorite book in the world, and I would highly recommend that you burn it at the soonest possibility. Catcher in the Rye, Dracula, 1984, & Alice in Wonderland are all pretty good. As for the others, I haven’t read them.

    You should also consider reading the Sherlock Holmes books (the first is A Study in Scarlet), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and The Importance of Being Earnest (this is actually a play, but it’s hilarious!).

    Good luck! ^_^

  2. Hi, Amy. This isn’t the Classic a Month Challenge, but the Classic Catchup 2016 at the Goodreads RMFAO group is perfect for you! One a month would put you at the top level –
    Level 5: Professor: 12 or more books
    Since you’re already in the RMFAO group, all you need to do is go to that thread and say you’re in! You can keep track of your books read there, ask questions, make recommendations, whatever.

      1. Good, hope to see you there! The cut-off date for that particular Challenge is 1940, so a couple of yours won’t qualify for it. No problem though, it’s not really one per month, but the total for the year.

    I’m doing a Classic Literature course next semester at uni, so we can discover them together! I’m actually super excited. I mean, as much as we love YA, we gotta expand our reading a little 😉

  4. You haven’t got any Charles Dickens on the list. I’d suggest Great Expectations as it’s one of the best and possibly the most reasonable length of his novels.
    Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre are musts. Wuthering Heights also worth a look, but that one divides readers much more than the other two (you either love it or can’t stand the characters).
    And, in defence of Frankenstein, I think it’s good. There are a couple of really shocking bits in it. I guess it just isn’t as shocking today as it was back when it was written. Another good classic by a female author though…

  5. DON’T READ CATHER IN THE RYE! DON’T DO IT! IT’S A TRAP! 0.0

    Animal Farm is dark, grotesque, and disturbing. You’ve been warned.

    I quite enjoyed Lord of the Flies, even though most people haven’t, and I have yet to read Alice in Wonderland. *should do that*

    I completely and wholeheartedly approve of ‘1984’(but haven’t read it), ‘Frankenstein'(but haven’t read it), ‘Dracula'(but haven’t read it), and ‘Pride and Prejudice'(read part of it :p). Oo! But I have read ‘The Westing Game!’ Gosh! I read that forever ago and could NEVER remember the title. So, thank you so very much for putting that on the list for me. ^.^

      1. NO!!!!! Run away! Run far away! Cather in the Rye was terrible! (In my opinion.)

        Bahaha! Perhaps I’m just scarred because I read ‘Animal Farm’ in 8th grade. *shudder*

        I really enjoyed ‘The Westing Game’. So, you should definitely make sure to read that one. ^.^

  6. Reading classics is the one goal I set for myself at the beginning of 2015 that I didn’t reach. I read a couple and just couldn’t get into them. I think it’s just not my reading style. I will definitely try other classics in the future but I think I learned a lot about not pressuring myself to read things I don’t want to read. So maybe for 2016 I’ll read one or two. Classics are hard. Hope all goes well for you and you find some that you LOVE!
