The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green by Joshua Braff
Such a good, relaxed read. Very, very funny. And also very moving.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
One of the best British Victorian novels.. or any novel.. of all time. I absolutely loved this book. The Bronte sisters are incredible.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.
The Color Purple by Alice Walker
Very beautiful story about the life of two black sisters in the 1950’s. Takes place in southern U.S.A.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
Awesome! Simultaneously hilarious and haunting.
Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
A classic… but ‘meh.’
The Death of Ivan Ilych by Leo Tolstoy
Beautiful commentary on living “the good life.” Highly recommended.
