Dracula (Bram Stoker)
Another one for the Goths! If you’re a fan of our undead friends, it’s worth experiencing one of the books that started it all. The story is terrific for those after a good, suspenseful gothic horror. It’s easy to think that Dracula is another hard-to-read classic, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The writing holds up really well (after over 100 years, that’s quite a feat) and it’s genuinely spooky in parts.

The Republic (Plato)
Greek philosophers are still harkened back to all these centuries later, which means they’re unlikely to fall out of style any time soon. Plato is arguably the most famous Greek philosopher — next to Socrates and Aristotle — and The Republic is his most famous work. What’s most striking about much (though thankfully maybe not all) of ancient Greek writing is how relatable it is today.
