Blame it on Leo and another film adaptation of a great book, but this is one classic love story that we can’t get enough of. Written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby tells the tale of glitz, glamour, pain and privilege — in an easy read that is short and sweet. Gatsby’s neighbor Nick Caraway recounts the story of the love between Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan in the early 1920s, brought to life by over-the-top parties and Gatsby's lavish wealth.
Though you may already know how this book ends because of its Hollywood coverage in recent years (no spoilers here!), The Great Gatsby follows suit with other tear-jerking and page-turning love stories that end in heartbreak.
