5 Books You Should Read Before You Die

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

This amazing book is a Gothic romance, mystery, and psychological thriller. I LOVED this book so much. It was recommended by my friend and I didn’t think it was going to be that great but wow, I was very impressed. If you love books with this kind of genre then you will enjoy it a lot and even if you don’t like this genre you should give the book a try!

 

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The wealthy Jay Gatsby has constructed a mansion on Long Island Sound for the sole purpose of wooing and winning his lost love Daisy Buchanan, who married another man while Gatsby was serving overseas. This classic American novel captures the Jazz Age in all its glory. Both the movie and book are amazing.

 

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I really enjoyed reading this book. I first read it while I was in high school and I honestly didn’t enjoy it at that time I was obligated to read it. Just recently I was helping my mother clean the house and I found in a huge box some dusty books. One of them was Pride and Prejudice and I decided to read it again. After a couple of chapters I was already hooked up on the book!

 

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Modernmrsdarcy.com says the following: “In this 1960 classic, small-town attorney Atticus Finch attempts a hopeless defense of a black man unjustly accused of rape, and to teach his children, Scout and Jem, about the evils of racism. It’s been a staple on high school reading lists for years, but it enjoyed a fresh burst of publicity when its companion Go Set a Watchman was published this summer”.

 

As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner

Faulkner claimed that he wrote it in 6 weeks, working from midnight to 4:00 a.m., and that he didn’t change a word. The story is set in Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi. It is narrated by 15 different characters over 59 chapters. It was even consistently cited as one of the best novels of the 20th century. This book is simply amazing and you have to read it.
