Here is a list and my opinion of the novels I have finished:
- A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens = It was had at first for me to get used to the "Old English" writing style. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and the complexity of the characters.
- David Copperfield by Charles Dickens = I didn't like this one as well as The Tale of Two Cities. I thought the story was lacking a bit of something (I don't know what though). Although, I am glad that I read it and I don't think it was a waste of me time.
- Holes by Louis Sachar = Not a classic. But I read it while in Texas so I added it to the list. And no I have not seen the movie so I do not know how they compare. It was a very easy read and I thought that the moral lessons learned by the characters were great for the age group it was written for to learn.
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen = I am about half-way through this book. I have seen the movie (long movie) but I wish that I hadn't. It is spoiling the book for me. I am very imaginative when I read a novel and having seen the movie prior to reading the book is not letting me have that imagination take place. Plus it has ruined the climax and end of the storyline. But I really like the book and I am very glad that I am reading it. Even though the movie has taken some of the run out of reading the novel, it definitely is not taking away from the great story.
- Great Expectations
- Charlotte's Web
- Gone With the Wind
- Les Miserables
- The Count of Monte Cristo
- The Hobbit
- The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
- A Mid-Summer Night's Dream
- The Taming of the Shrew

I have already read these but it was a long time ago and I would like to read them again:
- To Kill A Mockingbird

- Animal Farm
I am also up for any suggestions. So if you have a good novel that you think I might like to read leave me a comment please.
