What the Expert Says:

Sreya,

This is a very insightful question, and one that you have had to look deep inside yourself to even know what to ask.  For that I applaud you.  

In order to answer your question more completely, can you answer a few questions?  This will give all of us a better understanding of your situation and then provide you with some ideas of what you can do.  Please be honest; we are not passing judgment.

What grade are you in now?
What kinds of literature are you reading in class?
What kinds of things do you like to read on your own (when you aren't in class)?
Is there a particular type of literature that seems to give you a more difficult time?
Is there one particular story or piece of literature you enjoy and did well on the assignments?
What kind of assignments to do you like to complete when it relates to literature?
Is it the assignment you don't like or is it the literature you don't understand?
Is there a classmate that you can read with or sit and discuss the literature with?

In the meantime, here are a few ideas that might help.

Read out to your teacher.  Discuss your concern with him/her.  Ask them for suggestions or if they have a study group before or after school.

Start a book club.  Ask some of your classmates if you can meet over a soda or coffee to discuss the chapters, theme, events, characters, etc.  Often discussion lead to seeing differing points of view and reviewing key ideas, events, and problems.

Listen to the book.  Many public libraries have these books on CD or available for download on to your mp3 (iPod) player.  After reading a section, listen to it again.  You can listen anywhere.  Sometimes hear it for a second time around can be helpful.

Google the title.  However, be careful with this one as anyone can put up anything on the Internet.  You should be able to find reviews or other discussion boards that discuss the text/book.  If you are searching a reputable site, you might get some good insight from other.

Please feel free to email me directly if you'd like.

good luck!

You should give us a little bit more information to get a good helpful answer and solution for your problem. Probably, the main reason could be your luck of time or desire to read books that are required by your school program. They can be not interesting for you, but as you start reading it gets better and more exiting. Also, a good way to improve your grades in literature is to take English literature quizzes ti check your knowledge and expertise. Try a quiz they created on Assignment Mastres.co.uk. It's fast and interesting. You answer questions on famous novels and English writers and immediately get an answer. This way you'll know how well you are at English Literature. http://www.assignmentmasters.co.uk/english-literature-test/

If you have problem with literature I know one thing that might help you.
If you have problems with reading and understanding of other people's work, then try to write your own. That is to say switch places. If you can not write, use the help of special companies such as http://cheapessaywriters.org/we-will-release-you-from-writing-a-research-paper/ and rewrite their work in your own way, and sooner or later , you will learn to delve into the essence of any work and evaluation will certainly improve.
