More Books that Everyone Should Read  

A book that was mentioned a lot in the comments was Catch-22. It may have slipped our minds but we agree that it should have been included on the first list. The same goes for The Count of Monte Cristo. That is an amazing novel that I recommend to everyone that enjoys great works of literature.  

We included amazing novels such as Watership Down and Song of Solomon on this list. Many of these books are books you would read in school and for good reason. When else will these books come across your path again?  

One novel that probably feels out of place would be Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. But once you read it, you will see why we included it on this list. In our opinion, it is a classic and any novel that spawns a new subgenre is worth reading.  


That is all for our list of 17 more novels that everyone should read at least once. That is a total of 40 books in total so far. What novels should we include in the next post? Let us know in the comments below!

    Another sign this is generate by a bot – John Steinbeck wrote East of Eden, not Ernest Hemingway. And it’s Ernest, not Earnest. Or maybe you’re reading too much Oscar Wilde.

      perhaps they meant The Garden of Eden by Hemingway, a better book in my opinion than the Steinbeck (though I think mist readers rate them the other way around)

        One and one only: Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. Too often missed. Damned shame.

    Yep can’t read an article with so many errors.

      Glad others noticed the errors! Good grief!

  3. David Scott Cole says:

    Ditto. Sad to see such an error, Mr. Malaprop.

  4. Samir Mokdad says:

    I very much hope Mr. Ahaqir you will next mention Gibran Kahlil Gibran book “The Prophet”
    As I mentioned to you earlier it is translated into 22 languages and is the most read book world wide after the Bible and the Qur’an.
    Stockholm – Sweden.

    Could this have been compiled by AI? When you use CHATGPT, you should always check the facts (and the spelling).

  6. Brent says:

    A list with no reasons *why*; what a FAIL.

  7. Gloria Grant says:

    All Quiet on the Western Front (Im Western Nights Neues in the original German) should have been listed.
