What would you recommend to read?

I'm 13 and a freshman in high school, and we get to choose a book to read and do a project on (go over symbolism and characterization in the story, make thematic connections to other novels, etc.). I love reading and I don't mind long books, and some of my favorite genres are mystery, adventure, and any book with dramatic turns and climaxes. I adore Harry Potter and it's one of the few books I've read over and over, and I like horror stories as well, anything that grasps your attention. I'd rather hear an opinion about one of them rather than read the summaries and be exposed to spoilers. It is a quite extensive list. Our choices are the following: The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy Atonement by Ian McEwan The Awakening by Kate Chopin Beloved by Toni Morrison Benito Cereno by Herman Melville Billy Budd by Herman Melville Black Boy by Richard Wright Bless Me, Ultima by Ru

Which of these classics/coming-of-age-novels are the best, most interesting, shortest, simplest, etc.?

I have to do this AP Reading project for school, and it's due a week before the end of the semester, which means I have to get started. I have to choose 2 books on the list (below) and find words I don't know in the books (total 40) and write down their definition, part of speech, etc. Then I have to write an Annotated Bibliography for each, which means I give a citation and write a... summary, kind of. Then I have to present each in front of my LA class. I want to know which one you liked to read, or would be easy for writing vocab for/summarizing. I've already done a few of these books in past years, so I marked them with a "*".
