At first I wasn't sure how to chose but I thought to myself, what is one book that you could read over and over again and never get bored of. World War Z by Max Brooks. close second is I am Legend by Richard Matheson

bruhhh how can i choose?! theres so many good books out there.

ok but the percy jackson and heroes of olympus series are great. anything by rick riordan is a great read (even if its targeted towards young kids lol). i genuinely can’t wait for the disney series. hopefully its better than the movies.

ummm purposely didn't include this before bc its such a hard decision. i'm currently reading crime and punishment and although i find it amazing i think im too young to fully understand it so can't appreciate how good it really is. maybe ill read it again in a few years time. but for now it has to be either moneyball by michael lewis or cant hurt me by david goggins.

i sense a heavy skew towards fiction here. my friend highly recommends the olympus series too.
i recently read the hunger games series and i enjoyed them even though they are targeted for younger kids too so i can relate lol

crime and punishment has been collected dust on my shelf for the past year, maybe this is a sign. You also seem to have a specific taste when it comes to books, they seem to toe the line between fiction and non-fiction quite finely, far too motivating a "genre" for me. Good taste nonetheless...

yes definitely read it and tell me what u think.
ur spot on about me liking books between fiction and non-fiction... i never knew how to describe this before but i like the way u put it 'toe the line between...'
and finally what do u mean by motivating. i obvs know what the word means but in this context what do u mean exactly by too motivating for u?

I've been trying to get through lots of more classic novels over the past few years, I'd probably say 1984 is my favourite out of them so far. I like the concepts of plenty of others (e.g. Brave New World, Day of the triffids, Clockwork orange) but I never really like their endings and I can stomach the ending of 1984. I'm still working my way through Don Quixote which is also a great read (if you can cope with the massive volume of it)

I can't say I have a favourite book. The Bell Jar was probably the most relatable book I have ever read though.
