mine: 

 

-Frankenstein by Mary Shelly ( the best of the best ahmagahplz.png )

-Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert 

-Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy 
 
 
No your favorite books but your favorite classic 
 
 
 
special mention to "Les miserables" by Victor Hugo (amazing, spectacular but way to long) and "The grapes of Wrath ( too sad, I mean that ending?
