1. The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Seen the film? Check. Attended a 1920s prohibition-themed party? Done! But you simply haven’t got firmly to grips with spirit of the roaring twenties until you’ve delved into F. Scott Fitzgerald’s work of literary art.
2. The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini
Many people describe this novel as ‘heart-wrenching’ and ‘devastating’, and with good reason. Based around the themes of betrayal, guilt and redemption, there’s a whole lotta learning crammed into the pages of this bestseller.
3. The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins
One for the thriller fans here, Hawkins’ psychological rollercoaster of a novel is getting a lot of attention thanks to the superb big-screen adaptation with Emily Blunt but, as with all good book-to-screen situations, you’ve absolutely got to thumb the pages of the real thing first.
