5. The ‘We read this in high school, but we actually want to read it now’ novel
“The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1925

Whatever it is, we can’t wait to relive Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan’s tumultuous relationship and relive the symbolism that we dreaded learning about as teenagers. Bring it on, Fitzy.
