    I suppose it's Dreiser. All his books. And Akunin. His Fandorin's saga is a masterpiece. Worth reading for sure.

    "The Passionate Mind: A Manual For Living Creatively With Yourself" by Joel Kramer is one of the most important books to my life that I've ever read.

    Orwell is awesome. One main work of his but so skillfully written! Incredible!

    This morning I read a very short story by Kafka called "First Sorrow" and which is basically about the life of a trapeze artist who wants to remain on his trapeze at all times to dedicate himself entirely to his art. Though not as well known as "A Hunger Artist", it's still amazing.

    1984. I'm a pleb. :p

    I honestly thought the torture scene was really interesting. Exploring ideas you don't see a lot of books exploring there.

    Wuthering Heights
    Great Gatsby is a great novel, which a movie will NEVER do justice to. Just the way he intertwined all these different personalities and their foibles cannot possibly be shown in a movie
    The Grapes of Wrath
    Dark Elf Trilogy
