Books to read before I die

I’m not planing on dying anytime soon if you’re wondering. I’m just writing down this list of books I think I should read before I leave this plane.

«1984» by George Orwell
«War and Peace» by Leo Tolstoy
«Great Expectations» by Charles Dickens
«The Catcher in the Rye» by JD Salinger
«After A Passage To India» by EM Forster
«To Kill a Mockingbird» by Harper Lee
«Crime and Punishment» by Fyodor Dostoevsky
«Pride and Prejudice» by Jane Austen
«Jane Eyre» by Charlotte Bronte
«Lord of the Rings» by J.R.R. Tolkien

So I recently read in a newspaper that this list is the ten books most people lie about having read. I haven’t read any of them. Well I have read the last one, sort of, I skipped a lot of lore when reading it, I found it boring, and to be honest, confusing. That’s why I’m not removing it. I think I should read it properly.

Any suggestions for other books I should read?
