Have you read any of these books?--part 2

For more information on the meme, please go to my previous post here.
11. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Rowling)
Let’s just say it once. I love all the Harry Potter books. I only wish I could have read them as a kid. I also highly recommend the on tape version. The reader is fabulous.
12. Angels and Demons (Dan Brown)
Read it, I think I have finished all the Dan Brown I care to read
13. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Rowling)
14. A Prayer for Owen Meany (John Irving)
Didn’t read. It never caught my fancy.
15. Memoirs of a Geisha (Arthur Golden)
Enjoyed very much. I would like to check out the movie.
16. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Rowling)
17. Fall on Your Knees (Ann-Marie MacDonald)
I have one of her books on my TBR pile. Not sure if it is this one.
18. The Stand (Stephen King)
Haven’t read. Tend not to read horror novels.
19. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Rowling)
20. Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte)
Right up there with Pride and Prejudice. Read it several times and would read again if needed a comfort book. I wish I had a daughter to share it with.

My have-read on this part of the list is much shorter. I've read all of the Harry Potter ones as well, but not sure I'm up to reading the newest release. I'm getting rather bored with the series (books and movies).
The others I have read are The Stand (years ago, but only because I didn't have anything else to read...it was my mom's book) and Jane Eyre (Would you like to borrow my daughter?*grin*).
I do want to read Memoirs of a Geisha. I've seen the movie, and enjoyed it.

Yes on Harry Potters and yes on The Stand. The Stand isn't actually typical of King's "horror" novels---it's more of an apocolyptal tale.

Yes on Jane Eyre as well.

I read Irving's "The World According to Garp" every other year or so. For some reason, the rest of his books never caught my fancy either. ;-)

Out of those 10 I've only read Jane Eyre. My son has read all the Harry Potter books but victorian novels are more my style. Maybe I'll get to Potter after I hit a few more TBR books. Thanks for tagging me. =)
