Les Miserables (Classics)
1.  Les Miserables (Classics) by Victor Hugo

Love in a Cold Climate (Penguin Modern Classics)
2.  Love in a Cold Climate (Penguin Modern Classics) by Nancy Mitford
The list author says:

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

We (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)
3.  We (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics) by Yevgeny Zamyatin

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

The Good Earth
4.  The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (66 customer reviews)

The Book Thief
5.  The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Of Mice and Men (New Windmills)
7.  Of Mice and Men (New Windmills) by John Steinbeck
