16 Books You Need to Read to Call Yourself a Book Lover

The Great Gatsby

01_The-Great-Gatsby

Perhaps the greatest of all great American novels, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tale of the Roaring Twenties’ tragic decadence and greed is just as relevant today as it was nearly 100 years ago when it was written in 1925. It’s even inspired modern hit novels like Amor Towles’s Rules of Civility and Stephanie Powell Watts’ No One Is Coming to Save Us. Book lovers embrace the novel’s gorgeous prose, including one of the most famous last lines ever written: “And so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” Book lovers also need to have these runner-up GANs (great American novels, as author Henry James nicknamed them) on their bookshelf: John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, and J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye.
