Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Persuasion by Jane Austen
Middlemarch by George Eliot
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Possession by A.S. Byatt
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Books I disliked: From Russia With Love (my first - and likely last - James Bond novel; the movies are fun, but I couldn't get past the misogyny); Tess of the D'Urbervilles (I don't mind depressing, but this book is seriously depressing); Vanity Fair (hated all the characters). That's all that come to mind. I generally am pretty picky about what I read, so I don't read a lot of books that end up disliking.Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Veronica ~ SarahPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

Books I disliked, hmm...I remember trying to get into Gossip Girl, and I loved the first one, but after that, I couldn't be bothered, as they bored me. I also really didn't like the Pretty Little Liars series after the 3rd book, which put me off of the tv show.haley. nineteen.
