Hey guys!

So like many of you here, Iím a total bookworm! Lately Iíve been reading a lot of classics (Romeo+Juliet, The count of Monte Cristo, etc.) So could you guys recommend a few titles that kinda correlate to books the books Iíve already read?

Also, have any of you read the Phantom of the Opera? What do you guys think of it?

I'm dying over your signature like seriously. I LOVE Phantom of the Opera!!!
I read the book, and I thought it was great because of how similar the plot was to the musical.

And if you're aiming to read more classic books, there's always The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, a good one because of the movie coming out soon. (I personally haven't read it, but it's on my list of books I want to read)
Other classics are The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, and To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

I haven't read any Shakespeare, so I can't help you too much there, but I did read a novel version of A Midsummer Night's Dream, and I really liked that.

If you enjoy reading these classic novels, try googling classic novels. That's what I did to find a bunch of classic books that I wanted to read.

Anyway, hope this helps :goodvibes

The only Shakespeare I've read is Romeo and Juliet and Julius Caesar. Caesar is a good story, but in my opinion it is not as great as R&J. We read the Odyssey this year for school. If you can get past some of the strange grammar and spellings it has a pretty good story. Some of my favorite classics are Treasure Island, Sherlock Holmes, and Tom Sawyer/Huckleberry Finn.

Yay I like to read! (just not the books the teachers make us read. BORING! We were stuck reading Great Expectations one year! Grrrrr! The teacher was the only one who liked it. The other teachers(besides the reading teacher) agreed with us students that you could fall asleep reading a paragraph)

Since I loved the Narnia movies(except the new one) this summer I decided to read the Narnia trilogy. My friends have also gotten me hooked on the Hunger Games series. I'm also tring to find a place that sells the first books of the Kingdom Keeper series. Looks like I'm just going to have to find them online though.
