Can you tell me if any of these books are good?

Okay my grandpa told me if I read 35 books this summer he will get me a new laptop. I made a list but I was wondering if you read any of these books and think they are great or if they were really bad. Can you give me a few suggestions? Thank you in advanced.

    I just finished reading The Host by Meyer. I thought it was a really good book and it only took me five days to finish it. I have also read It by King. It is a very good book too but since you need to read so many books I would exclude It unless you read really really fast, being that It is one of King’s longest books. It took me a long time to get through it even reading some everyday.

    Thats a weird mix of titles you have there….

    Alchemist is intellectual,
    IT is horror,
    Pride and Prejudice a literary classic,
    Memoirs of Geisha is non-classified.

    If you have to start reading all of these, and you are interested in bio’s; i would suggest start with Memoirs of Geisha. But if you do not have appetite for slow narratives, stay off memoirs and alchemist both.

    All the best.
