I have a really long list that I'm going to read some of for Freedom to Read (Canada's banned book week). I agree, banning books is ridiculous.

I loooooved To Kill a Mockingbird, but I didn't like Lord of the Flies (it was creepy to me) so I'll be interested in your reviews. :)

i've read a couple of those, and some of those are on my tbr list too. (lolita looks especially interesting)...and brave new world too!

I should warn you that Slaughterhouse Five is a fairly confounding read...not bad, but definitely not a leisurely sort of page-turner.

Great list, Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies are really good reads. I've been meaning to read Lolita and Brave New World but haven't gotten around to it yet.
