16. Lolita- Nabokov
 This book is way way too deep and complex to explain in a few sentences but its a must read for any one who wants to claim they know anything abt classic literature. (which is why I initially read it. because i must be a snob about everything.. ) 

 I’ve heard it been called the most beautiful and tragic love story ever to incestuous child pornography that should be banned. Basically it is about a middle aged professor who falls in love with his tenant’s pre-pubescent daughter who is a little.. well, Lolita. A serious tease who owns it and is a little brat/bitch/badass. 

So then the drama starts: the tenant ends up marrying Lo’s mom just to be close to Lo, kills her (arguably) , steals lo, ends up fucking her, they start a relationship and eventually.. well its a tragic love story.. i can’t tell you everything. 🙂

There is a super awesome dramtic ending and is fairly tragic bc inreality no one gives a fuck about the heartbroken tenant… welcometo the real world! Stanley Cooper also made a movie that I love pretty much equally.. So maybe just check that out depending on the laziness of your summer.
