Struggling to pick your next book? Well thanks to Good Reads we've got our hands on the top 100 books you should read before you die (according to their users). Which means that you won't need to arbitrarily plump for any of the titles at the airport's WHSmith, nor will you run out of reads by the pool and be forced to read the hotel groups own magazine.
Stepping away from the next list of new must-reads, the reading list includes old favourites, epic classics and beloved children's books that have all clearly left an ever-lasting imprint on all that read them.
Cult reads like the woven word magic of F. Scott Fitzgerald's insanely beautiful The Great Gatsby, Sylvia Plath's devasting only novel The Bell Jar and the scandalous Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov feature as well as a host of classics like War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens and Moby Dick by Herman Melville.
You might recognise childhood favourites like The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne and Charlotte's Web by E.B. White as they still clearly hold a special place in our hearts.
And, of course, there are a whole heap of modern day classics like Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling, Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding and The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.
If you're struggling to find time to read your way through this quintessential list then don't worry because we've thought of that too, here's how to fit more reading into your life.
