    My favourite book of all time is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

    Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park + Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen
    Oliver Twist - Charles Dickens
    To Kill a Mockingbird + Go Set a Watchman - Harper Lee
    Dracula - Bram Stoker
    Frankenstein - Mary Shelley

    The Great Gatsby - F Scott Fitzgerald
    The Catcher in the Rye - JD Salinger
    Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte

    The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway

    The Plague + The Stranger - Albert Camus
    Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy
    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey
    The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath
    Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth + Much Ado About Nothing - William Shakespeare

    By readig some names and authors, I know what books I want to read next time. Apart from the fact that there are some classics unread at home...

    - Of Mice and Men (GCSE English) (one of my top five books)
    - An Inspector Calls (GCSE English) (not sure if it counts as a classic) (also one of my top five books)
    - Wuthering Heights (back when I was in primary school so it must've been some sort of child-friendly version)
    - Macbeth (GCSE English) (honestly one of my favourite books)
    - A Midsummer Night's Dream (A-Level English Literature)

    Maybe more that I can't remember right now because I'm sleep-deprived.

    My reading list:
    - Jane Eyre and Emma (both books were given to me as gifts from one of the English teachers at my secondary school)
    - To Kill A Mockingbird and Go Set A Watchman
    - Nineteen Eighty Four (I have a second-hand copy that I bought for 20p or 50p)
    - Catcher In The Rye (second-hand copy bought for 20p or 50p)
    - One or two Dostoyevsky books that I can't remember at the moment
    - Possibly more classics that I bought at very cheap prices but can't be bothered to check my book stash
