There are tons of classics out there and choosing only five feels like a crime. These five are the ones that stood out the most. But we wouldn’t be surprised if some of these didn’t make your top five. You can check out the full list below!
The Five Must Read Classics
- The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Like most readers, I have a love hate relationship with the classics. Some of them are amazing like To Kill a Mockingbird and The Count of Monte Cristo. And then you’ll come across a classic that will make you never want to read a classic again. But for the most part, I have enjoyed most classics and I am glad I gave them a chance.
The Catcher in the Rye is an interesting pick because it is a novel that readers either love or hate. There is no in between. After revisiting this novel, I do believe it deserves the recognition it has gotten over the decades. There is a lot to take away and the novel is even more relevant in this day and age.
One of the most popular novels ever written had to be The Handmaid’s Tale. Some people may have read it in school while others read it for fun but either way, it is an impactful novel. The T.V. show has made it relevant again as well as introducing it to a newer generation.
That is all for the five classics that you must read. How many of these classics have you read? Which classics should we add on our next list? Let us know in the comments below!
