    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
