Just finished To Kill a Mockingbird. Anyone got any other suggestions for me to read?
Cheers!

It's nearly impossible for me to choose a favorite book but if I had to choose, I'd go with Pride and Prejudice.

This book still send chills down my spine when I think about it.

Of Mice and Men | John Steinbeck

Mehso-so

Honestly a good read but too sad of an ending. An interesting story about two men trying to make their way in the world. But the ending is extremely anti climatic, with the death of Lennie.

Titus Andronicus | William Shakespeare
Mehso-so

Not really a review, just a quick thought. I used to think Macbeth was brutal and violent but now I know that Titus Andronicus is just one big book if violence.
This is essentially Shakespeare before he became Shakespeare. Perhaps he chose to write this one is the previously established style of violent plots. He only later started to write in his own style that provided entertainment for the next 400 or so years.

Eleven Minutes | Paulo Coelho
Pickpick

Honestly I'm surprised at how much this book moved me. Coelho generally has a very linear writing style. But this book moved from the general philosophical style and talks in a more human and simple level. Beautiful and touching.

Love Poems | Pablo Neruda

"Take bread away from me, if you wish,
take air away, but
do not take from me your laughter."

By far, some of the most beautiful lines I've ever read. Poetry at its best.

You | Caroline Kepnes
Pickpick

This book leaves you on the edge of your seat. The language wisps you away into a world of mystery, love, murder. A story about the dark side of romance.
