Favorite Books I Never Talk About

When i talk about books i love, i always talk about the same ones. I’ve realized this not long ago and because of that i wanted to get a shout out to the rest of the books i adore with all my heart and never give them the space they deserve. Obviously there are more books that may be on a favorite standard, but either i can recalled them this moment or i just talked about them before.

The Catcher in the Rye

Yes, i do realize having this book as a favorite is a cliche. Still, i remember reading it when i was in high school and really feeling connected to Holden. There was something different about him than any other character i’ve ever read about and so i used to call him my literary boyfriend, thinking on how we would run away together. It’s been a while since i last read the book and i can’t remember if he wanted to go east or west (i think east), but i used to write him letters every week.

Catch-22

This book changed my life and the way i write fiction. I remember the death of Snowden in the book as if i read it yeasterday. The way this book describes things, it just changed me forever. I loved the main character, and i loved the fact that his crewmate was dead in the tent and nobody cared. Like, honestly, what is this book. Can i tattoo everything on my skin, i wish i had this book on my body.

Fahrenheit 451

The book i wish i could remember by heart. If you know what i mean. At first i didn’t like this book, but by the end i was so engaged i couldn’t stop reading it. Such a remarkable book. I have scenes marked in my brain, i think i’ll never forget them.

1984

I own the same edition. I remember reading it in spanish for the first time, and how i started to talk the same way the characters did while i was reading it. I had many expectation for O’Brein, but i guess back then i wasn’t that good catching up what was gonna happen. Now it’s much easier. Another book i wish i could tattoo on my skin. Amazing book.

Flowers for Algernon

When i read this book i happened to meet a person with the same characteristics as the main character which made the experience even more interesting. Obviously the person i knew didn’t went through the treatment as the main character (Charlie) did, but he began in the same place as the person i met. It was interesting because i could see their behavior and understood more the story Charlie was going through, or so i felt.

Manuscript Found in Accra

I haven’t read much by Paulo Coelho, but this is my favorite book by him. By far the most eye opener of them all, i enjoy it so much, i love the quotes i took from it, i still think about them a lot. Still, not one of my favorite authors, i think he is pretty overrated. I know i’m being ridiculous because i keep reading his books after not liking them, but one was worth it, maybe there’s another gem out there.

I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Sometimes when i’m stressed out i like to repeat a song, a word, a phrase. I’m thinking of ending things is one of those lines i like to repeat to myself when i’m feeling anxiety. For some reason after a while it helps me get trhough the difficult time. Now, the book was the most unexpected book i’ve read in a very long time, and i adored it when i read it. Still one of my favorites.

We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Somedays i can’t stop myself from thinking about this book. It was just so eerie, i adored it. I don’t have muh to say about it, i just, felt to conected to the characters i couldn’t stop reading once i started i finished it in one sit. Remarkable and unforgettable, the story of these two sisters and what happens in this house will live with me forever.

That’s it! these are some of my favorite books, it’s a shame i don’t speak about them enough so i wanted you to know how much i love them! Do you have any books you really love but you feel like you don’t speak about them enough? Leave your comment down below!
