Are you a bibliophile? Here is a list of books one must read before they die

Books are everyone’s dearest friends, serving as a patch of solace and the most lovely companion in joys and sorrows.

A book enthusiast is aware that few things may provide them as much happiness and solace as reading a wonderful book. Every bibliophile, though, feels as though they are missing out on a great work of art. Too many books, not enough time. How are you, a bibliophile, supposed to choose the books to read in your constrained time? Come let's find out a few limited and interesting books that you must read.

Pride and Prejudice

This book by Jane Austen is one of the best that keeps calling to you because it is always current. This work is a parody of Georgian England's rigid and shallow class structures as well as an expose of the marriage market. But after reading this, you might be surprised to learn that society has probably not altered much in recent years.


A book by Toni Morrison should be read for a variety of reasons and one of them is the fact that a woman of colour who won the Pulitzer for writing this particular book wrote it. This enduring classic is an indictment of the American slave trade and the main individual is haunted by the hurtful spirit of “Beloved”, which stands for America’s troubled past.

Never let me go

Kazuo Ishiguro, the Noble Prize winner for literature, explores the complexities of love, friendship, independence, youth, loss and acceptance in this science-fiction book. Even though they are “clones” in a dystopian society, the primary protagonists of “Never Let Me Go” are imperfect, much like typical humans. This is one of the best novels to read before you pass away since it’s an emotional read that offers important life lessons.

Things Fall Apart

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe offers a fascinating window into African literature and society. The evolving power structures in colonised Africa are the subject of the book. Okonkwo, the main character, finds it challenging to accept the rules and regulations imposed on his community. This is one of the best books to read before you pass away because it helps you to understand the meaning of civilisation and community.

All about Love

Bell Hooks’ “All About Love” is yet another title on the list of novels you must read before you pass away. This amazing book teaches us all about "love," the most significant attribute a person can have.

You can embark on your adventure now that you are aware of the books you must read. Your life will get more and more richer as you proceed down the list.
