I loved both Animal Farm and 1984 too.
My favorite books that are actually well-written/classics are:
To Kill a Mockingbird
Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card
Ender's Shadow - Orson Scott Card
Dante's Inferno
The Raven (Poe)
The Time Traveler - H.G. Wells
The Swiss Family Robinson - (Completely umbelievable, but fun to read.)
Frankenstein
The Picture of Dorian Gray - (Sad and well-written.)
Fahrenheit 451
My favorite books/series that are just fun to read are:
Maximum Ride (Going downhill fast, thank goodness the next book is the last book.)
The Mortal Instruments series
The Inheritance series
Artemis Fowl - (Last one made a comeback from mediocrity.)
Skulduggery Pleasant series - (British and completely amazing. 6 books in the series so far.)
The Hunger Games series
"The stars are beautiful because of a flower that cannot be seen." ='( -Le Petite Prince

I'm surprised how James Patterson decided to turn it from a sci-fi into a love story. My Latin teacher was making fun of it after he got it from one of my classmates.

Dava Sobel's Galileo's Daughter is an interesting book whether you like astronomy or not.

I noticed that the "Worst Books" thread has been getting attention lately, so I thought it would be nice to remind people that this thread exists too.
Some of my favorites:
Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" series
Huxley's "Island"
Neil deGrasse Tyson's "Death by Black Hole"
