AnonymousCan you suggest some books for me because I am learning English recently? I am 20 years old thanks
I’ve been mulling over this question for a while, and from what I’ve found most sites seem to recommend best seller novels for English learners. I think you should choose a book that interests you. If you’re interested in the topic, then it won’t feel like “work” to get through it. I would recommend you read more contemporary reads, because the language in the romantics or classics gets very complicated and difficult even for native English speakers. I’ve given out a lot of recommendations for novels, which you can check out for some help as well.
Does anyone else have specific novels that could help?
AnonymousDo you know of any good collections of short stories? Like a bunch of short stories put together into a book?
Hi, yes I do. I happen to really adore short stories. These are the collections I own and love dearly:
Does anyone else have any recommendations?
AnonymousYou wouldn't happen to know any good books about angels/people with wings? I keep looking for it, but I mostly just find these twilight-ish romance books and that's not really what I'm after. Any tip?And while I'm at it, your blog is awesome :)
This was really difficult for me to find books for. It seems most books that have angels are romance. These are the ones I found:

I absolutely love Joyce Carol Oates’ writing. She’s among my favorite authors. Though, I’ve never read her novels. I’ve read most of her short stories. I’d say to High Lonesome. It’s a collection of her short stories from 1966 to 2006, which has a lot of the short stories I love.
Anonymousany recs for books like anna and the french kiss or my life next door?
I actually haven’t read either of these books. (Sorry! I’m not a big YA reader.) I’d suggest this list for more recommendations. I did look through some lists online and the ones that seem to be recommended would be:

AnonymousCan you rec books about magic, kinda like HP?
Magic and YA? Firstly, I’d also suggest this list for more books. Secondly, I’d recommend:

Hi! First of all, Flowers for Algernon is one of my favorites. I think it will work perfectly with that topic. I’d suggest this list for more than the ones I’ll mention. The first few books that come to mind would be:

Yes, that’s because I just finished reading I Am the Messenger and I tend to reblog or write the quotes I enjoy out of what I’m currently reading. I feel like they are both very different kinds of books. I’ve answered an ask about WWII books, which I feel go well with The Book Thief. As for I Am the Messenger, I would suggest checking out this list. It has all of the books I would recommend. I hope that helps!
Books that I’ve read or have heard good things about in the historical fiction area would be:

I hope that helps!
Hi, thanks so much for asking. I haven’t read it, but it is now on my to read list. It sounds like an amazing book. After a lot of researching, I found that the rest of Milan Kundera’s work would be suggested reads, but I found these books as well which sounded interesting to the topic and time period:
I’d also suggest this list for more books. I hope that helped!
So, I thought it easier to group these two questions together. They’re both very general. I feel like every fiction novel teaches the reader about life in some way or the other, so I don’t think I could make a list of five or more novels that do that. For that reason, I’m going to give the same links for general book recommendations for all.
First off, I tag every single recommendation ask/fan mail question on my blog so you can easily scroll through these and find books by different topic and genres at times. Secondly, I’d recommend books that I’ve already read and books that I want to read.
If you guys have more specific recommendations that you’re looking for, then shoot me an ask. I love trying to find just exactly which books I think will work. Also, thanks for asking me for recommendations and generally being made of awesome!
AnonymousWhat other Agatha Christie books do you like, apart from Towards Zero?
All of them.*
No really. All of them. I’ve read almost every book she’s written. Not to mention I collect her books. As of right now I have 50 of the 66 novels she published and a collection of her short stories.
*I have not read the romance books she wrote at first. That should be noted.
Anonymousfavorite romance stories ever?
I don’t really read books of the romance genre. I have never been a fan of those types of books. The books that I’ve liked that are romantic in nature are Jane Eyre, Anna Karenina, The Sister of Travelling Pants series, and Tuck Everlasting. Sorry I can’t be of any real help to you!
I did find these lists that have better suggestions then I could ever give.
AnonymousAny recommendations of good epistolary novels?
I do, but for those who don’t know epistolary novels are novels that are written in diary or letter format. My list is what I’ve read and what I’ve heard is really good. Here we go:
