    The count of Monte Christo is one of my favorites as well!

    I myself would highly recommend Crime and Punishment and Master and Margarete as must read and definitely life-changing books.

    You didn't ask per se, but my all time favorite book is Desert Solitaire, Ed Abbey. A memoir.

    And … The Count of Monte Cristo is written by Dumas! A classic. Written by a person of color! Boggle!

    Hi darling, I published a book months ago. It’s a book about productivity and how to use your mind to achieve your goals. It’s going to be free for the next seven days on Amazon. I’ll leave the link if you’re interested. Thank you! 🙏🏻

    I'd toss in a few books from The Bible to a "read this before you die" list. Namely Proverbs, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and The book of Wisdom, maybe Job….anyway even the staunchest atheist can appreciate the wisdom of proverbs, the emotional rollercoaster of the psalms, and certainly the cynicism of Ecclesiastes. There's a reason billions of people throughout the history of the Judeo Christian world have chosen to dedicate their lives in devotion to these wonderful works of humanity.

    Wuthering heights, is a very dark tale of obsessive love and revenge, but still essentially at its heart, a love story of soul mates., a masterpiece.

    Great list. For spiritual well-being “The Hidden Words,” can be downloaded free. It contains 153 brief passages revealed by Baha’u’llah in 1858, as he walked the banks of the river Tigris in Baghdad. Direct and straightforward, it holds treasures of meaning that facilitates experiences of inner transformation.

    I like to read a lot too, but on a different genre, but I stayed on this video, because you have a Jynx Maze – Mia Khalifa style going on that really kept me captivated. Suscribed.

    The horror element isn't the reason I love King. It's the warmth of his voice, his characters, and his wisdom about the world. And I think that shows up most in his later works like 11/22/63, Duma Key, and Lisey's Story. Plus, I think his prose got a lot better. You might like Lisey's Story if you want a book about grief.

    Great choises, really hard to pick up only 10 books in a vast world of reading. In my opinion there are great writers and famous writers, great novels and stories aswell, but reading is a constant lesson, maybe there is not a lifetime to know every great novel. Thanks for sharing.

    Great list ! I should really read the count of Monte-Cristo !

    My personnal list :
    1. The Little Prince by A. Saint-Exupéry
    2. The Stranger by A. Camus
    3. Froth of the Daydream by B. Vian
    4. The Shadow of the Wind by C. Ruiz Zafon
    5. Lum'en by Laurent Genefort
    6. La mécanique du coeur by M. Malzieu
    7. Dune by F. Herbert (I don't recommand the following books tho, quite disapointing in my opinon)
    8. Notre Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo
    9. Dangerous Liaisons by C. de Laclos
    10. White Fang by J. London

    And I realized these are mostly french novel, but I guess I can't stop reading books in my mother tongue.

    You should have included

    Lolita – Uncomfortable subject matter, masterfully written.

  • Juan Pablo Forero

    It´s curious but I believe I read The count of Monte Cristo and How to win friends, almost the same year, I cannot be sure. But I enjoyed both very much. The count was a school assigment, so I had to read it when I was 14, and I just loved it completely, it was such a marvelous work. Now, you made me want to read Wuthering Heights. I´m lucky I found a tesis document that talks about all the 5 spanish translations and I managed to get the best one, I will read start to read it as soon as I finish The Remains of the days (also in spanish). I also loved How to make friends, it was a mind opening book, really recommended!!

  • Stories Are My Way Home

    January 14, 2021 - 2:52 pm

    Great recommendations. My personal list would be:

    The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath
    Man’s Search for Meaning – Viktor Frankl
    Meditations – Marcus Aurelius
    On the Shortness of Life – Seneca
    The Brothers Karamazov – Fyodor Dostoevsky
    The Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas
    Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu

    Crime and punishment is best to read

  • Fredy Mendez

    January 14, 2021 - 2:52 pm

    My favorite authors are Valeria Luiselli, Mohsin Hammid, Niel Gaiman but Tara Westover memoir “Educated” changed my perspective on life all together!! I read it immediately after I came out and was surprised it was her first time writing a book. Now high schools all over the United States are making ppl read them because it’s so inspirational especially for students and college students.

    I love the look of your bookshelves. I love the way you arrange them. Bc you don't arrange them by color. I don't really get why some people arrange their books by color. It hurts my eyes when i see books arranged by color.
