I don't read anywhere NEAR enough. I like a lot of genres and some of my favourite authors include Jack Kerouac, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Herman Hesse, Aldous Huxley, Tolkien, Robert Frost, Mervyn Peake, George Orwell, Margaret Atwood, Simone de Beauvoir, Marcus Aurelius and John Milton. I used to read so so so much fiction but then studied science at university and haven't really had the time since. I read a lot of non-fiction, science and philosophy, but I don't read enough books: the only novels I've read in the last 6 months are the Silmarillion, Children of Hurin, Unfinished Tales and Tales from the Perilous Land (All Tolkien), The Unbearable Lightness of Being (Milan Kundera, which I HATED), Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, and there must have been others because that's appalling. (I've read lots of non-fiction in that time, but that's not the point). I used to read a book a week and I want to get back to that. I like sci-fi, fantasy, gothic, supernatural and horror, philosophy, literature, modern classics. I don't really really read crime, thrillers or romance, though maybe I'd like them if I tried. I need a LOT of book recommendations right now, please just recommend me ANYTHING right now and I'll read it, I'm desperate for the words of others. I don't care what it is. I got a few novels out the library tonight which I'm hoping to work my way through, but yeah. Please please please, I'm absolutely desperate.
