5 books that you must read if you have not so far

5 books that you must read if you have not yet:

A well-known American bookbub.com site has asked its visitors to discover what are the best books they have ever read.

Even though we stepped well into the 21st century, it seems that works from the past and even the last century are still the most popular.

Most of us have read some of these works in the olden days, during high school days, as a mandatory part of the proofreading.

However, certainly not all works from this list.

So in fifth place is the famous 1938 Gothic novella “Rebecca”, signed by British writer Dame Daphne du Maurier.

Based on this book, the equally famous film by Alfred Hitchcock, which received an Oscar, was produced.

In fourth place is the legendary novel, which comes from the Department of American Literature, dating back to 1868. Interestingly, the topic it deals with in a certain way is still popular today, the reason why a new film adaptation of the novel was shown at the end of last year. of course “Little Women,” by Louisa May Alcott.

The book, of course, unlike the movie (both the one from 1994 and the one from 2019) still has richer content.

Third place went to the unrivaled “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë.

In second place is the novel by American writer Harper Lee, who was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in the first place, of course, “Kill a Mockingbird.”

First place (it seems forever) belongs to Jane Austen and the cult novel “Pride and Prejudice.”

  1. I have read a ton of books but with my memory slowly leaving I cannot remember them all. As a youngster I used to love Nancy Drew mysteries. I still enjoy to this day Agathat Christie’s books and Stephen King. I remember reading a couple of books from Simone de Beauvoir, Leon Uris and others… One thing though, I mostly think that movies based on books do not do justice to the book or their authors.

  2. I have read some of them, although I also have Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice. I am more into Thomas Hardy novels, Lord of the Flies, and steig larsson trilogy. in high school, i read Flowers in the Attic with its 4 other books that come after it, Mommie Dearest, Audrey Rose, Heaven Can Wait, and Danielle Steele’s The Promise.

  3. Everyones taste in books is different.
    Some books take about 5 pages to get thhe horse and cart over the hill and cant cope with slow moving description.
    I liked Enid Blyton at school and when I got into those, the powers that be at school banned Enid Blytons books.

    Jane Eyre I read in comic form is great.

    I don’t read Alfred Hitchcock but enjoyed reading Agatha Christie.

    To me, “The Hobbit ” and “Lord of the rings” is a must along with C S Lewis with the 7 chronicles of Narnia. Not everyones taste, really enjoyed reading Harry Potter too.

    Used to enjoy reading the medical books & fiction of Frank Slaughter.

    Im not into Mills & Boon, but liked Phillipa Carr, not so much Barbara Cartland.
