The_Fault_in_Our_StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

This novel gives us a feisty protagonist in cancer-stricken Hazel, who falls hard for fellow cancer patient Augustus Waters. The way these two characters speak to each other is both ridiculous and charming, and you’ll find yourself rooting for their love to flourish. Be warned, though: You’ll need half a box of tissues to get through the ending.

THE-GREAT-GATSBYThe Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

The plot takes Nick’s character — a Midwesterner — into the lavish yet tragic world of his Long Island neighbor Jay Gatsby. Remember the symbolism of the green light at the end of the dock? If you don’t, it’s time to read this one again.
