    Great Gatsby and Of Mice and Men should fit the bill on both counts

    Anna Karenina is a good book, it's very long, but very well written (It's tolstoy, how could it not be amazing). Catcher in the Rye, Catch 22, A lesson before dying, Ethan Frome, War and peace, A portrait of the Artist, Atlas Shrugged, anything by Dostoevsky, The Bell Jar, On the Road, anything by Kurt Vonnegut Any number of classic literature books. These are just some books that were read by me (or fellow classmates) in my ap english 12 class.
