Alice's recommended reading list if you're learning American English.

These are all books I read in grade school. (Elementary school and Middle school and High school.) I went to public school in Ohio. These were books I read between 1990 and 2002. These are great classic books!

This is a good list - I recognise some of the titles from the Australian school curriculum.  Ray Bradbury's sci-fi work was also on our reading list, specifically The Day of the Triffids and Fahrenheit 451.  His short story, A Sound of Thunder, is a must-read because there are sometimes references to it in modern pop culture.

The other name that turned up was Geroge Orwell - we read either Animal Farm, or 1984.

Thank you, Alice. I've heard titles of 5 books. Which is the easiest book to read? Reading book is a little bit hard for me.

Crazy I'll make a separate post about that. 

Wirawam honestly I don't remember much at all about the Tom and Huck movie since I haven't watched it since it was in theaters. 

Lemi thank you for the suggestion. 

Thank you Aniko.

Great recommandations! Thanks Alice 😊

What I also liked (like) a lot:

- Ernest Hemingway: "The old man and the sea" and "For whom the bell tolls".

I wish you all a nice day!

There are plenty of great masterpieces of English literature. What I also wanna recommend is an outstanding one - "We Have Always Lived in the Castle" by Shirley Jackson.
