What's an exciting classic book you would recommend?
Got rejected from library. But I really I haven't read many classics.

Looking for short story anthology too.

Call of the Wild is a quick read you should read if you haven’t before.

If you like Call of the Wild, read White Fang.

re: What's an exciting classic book you would recommend?
Frankenstein by Mary Shelly
Animal Farm as suggested earlier
Lord of the Flies
Brom Stoker's Dracula

Many of the Edgar Rice Burroughs series are entertaining if sometimes far fetched (Tarzan, John Carter)

Several Kipling options (not sure why he has somewhat fallen out of favor) I'm a big fan of The Jungle Book.

Edgar Allan Poe wrote great short stories.

If an ebook is acceptable amazon has decent prices, here is an example.

Edgar-Allan-Poe-Anthology-Illustrations-ebook

You may be able to find many of the authors on one of the public domain/free site like
https://www.gutenberg.org/

The Jungle Book Options

If you have the patience to get past the dissertations. Moby Dick has some very exciting parts.

Try Bernard Cornwell’s Last Kingdom series. Historical fiction set in King Alfreds reign.

I like the show.

Really good recommendations, lovecraft is a good foray into goth horror

Book Thief by Zusak is awesome. I'm not sure it's 100% classic but it worth reading. It wasn't my own decision to read it but anyway I'm glad I was asked to write an essay by this book. That's how I started reading it. After all I've got some writing help here and I got a lot of pleasure during reading process.
