Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Belle du Seigneur by Albert Cohen
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Jackson's Dilemma by Iris Murdoch
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark

Honestly, this is kind of just a random selection of some of the books I really enjoyed... I probably have more like 100 favourite books.

Pride and Prejudice is definitely one of my absolute favourites... I read Of Mice and Men, but didn't really like it (though I did read it for school, with a not very good teacher, and I was little young - like 10 years old).
If you like P&P, you should definitely read I Capture the Castle, it's a lot like it, just more modern :)

most of these are childhood favorites that have followed me up to now

His Dark Materials -Pullman
Lord of the Flies -Golding
Lolita -Nabokov
The Castle -Kafka
1984 -Orwell

Pretty well-known but I guess that's why they're classics :]
