Probably about a million of these are posted a day but I'm too lazy to find the answers myself, oops. I'm doing A-Level Lit next year (I don't know which syllabus) and I'd like some recommendations. It doesn't need to be preparatory reading or anything, but I would like a good mix of classics and modern; this includes graphic novels as I work in a comic shop anyway. No John Green, Nick and Norah or Harry Potter type **** though (no offence). Can anybody help?

Wait, someone on the 'Books, literature and comics' section who isn't looking for female teen fiction? :O
OT: for books at A2 I'm looking at Frankenstein, Great Gatsby, The Collector and The Road.
for plays I'm looking at All My Sons, Antony and Cleopatra and Streetcar Named Desire

Dont get me wrong, romance is good, just not the type thats full of "quirky" girls and "awkward" guys. As for Harry Potter, its just abismal, there is no getting round that!
I love The Road, Im not so keen on Gatsby but I'll read them both again, along with the rest, over Summer.
Thank you so much for replying 😁
