Okay, I'm moving past the fact that you haven't already read P&P. It's not even my favorite Austen--though it is delightful. If you like it, I recommend Persuasion. I do NOT, however, recommend A Brave New World. But maybe that's my high school brain talking. It bored me to death.

The Anne books would count, wouldn't they? I love L.M. Montgomery.

I have a beautiful copy of Gone with the Wind that I always tell myself I will read, and then I never do. But, but...do you know how many pages are in that book?!? Terrifying.

It took me forever to read Pride and Prejudice. I'm one of those weird people who doesn't swoon over their romance at all. But I LOVE Northanger Abbey if you'd maybe want to consider that one too? :)

Brave New World was...good and important to read but not exactly FUN. It's clear the message NOT the storytelling was the author's focus, I think.

Wuthering Heights is awesome. It's totally insane. Those people, gah, they're awful. But in a good way. I still have no clue what Joseph says (his dialog is written phonetically and I always read it like "id;ahgdugheblahblahidohger"

I like that you encourage spontaneous babble in your comments :P

Thanks for joining Logan! I've read P&P and it's really fun. I haven't read any of the others on your list though!
