No Twilight Zone, I promise.

Gone With the Wind - A classic but a good one. Written by Margaret Mitchell, Gone With the Wind is a story about the naivety of not realising how important somebody is to you, and taking them for granted. Gone with the Wind follows the character Scarlett O’Hara as she seeks to pursue her own selfish wants, which consequently results in her inability to see how much she loves the dashingly confident, intelligent and arrogant Rhett Butler. Both characters are as infuriating as each other, but so fantastically fun to read about. Set during the American Civil War, it is also an entertaining way to brush up on your history. Whist it is a long novel, you are guaranteed not to put this one down.

Lolita - Written by Vladmir Nabokov, this story is above anything...a daring one. A story about the disturbingly endearing paedophile Humbert and his lusting relationship over the young teenager Lolita. So how does this novel teach us about love while covering such a controversial topic? This book is an exploration of power in relationships, and how destructive and imbalance in power can be in a relationship. It is also a very accurate depiction of what lust can be rather than love. It is a novel that can be related to many troubled relationships; it is only the way that Nabokov explores this, that may repel readers.

The Great Gatsby - This classic by F. Scott Fitzgerald explores the idea of undying love and obsession. Set in 1920’s New York, it follows the main character Gatsby and his love for Daisy, through the narration of Daisy’s cousin Nick. The story explores Gatsby’s denial and refusal to believe that his one true love Daisy, who he met in his youth, and has not seen for many years has moved forward. It explores relationships as they are forced apart, and accurately depicts how different they can be when reignited years later. The hardest part about this novel is that there is a certain feeling of detachment from the main characters as the narration is told by a spectator rather than an important character.
