Well, I didn't think it was really great, but it kind of gets you hooked; it really makes you turn the page to see what happens next...but I have to admit the writing was sooo bad :p

9. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka - a re-read, I really like Kafka and this is one of his best works.

11. Ulysses by James Joyce - hmmm, I loved the idea of the book and it was really funny and nice at parts but mostly it was way too boring.
12. The Trial by Franz Kafka - well, I liked it, it got a bit boring sometimes but all in all it was a nice read.

I don't know if it's the proper place but can you please suggest me a good book to read? A teacher of mine is irritating me saying I should read more

4. Blue Nights by Joan Didion

5. Paris, My Sweet by Amy Thomas (too bad to finish)

What do you usually like to read, or what themes interest you? I'm usually told I'm great at recommending books, but I mostly read classics and cult classics so I'm definitely not for everyone's taste

The Mortal Instruments:
1) City of Bones
2) City of Ashes
3) City of Glass
4) City of Fallen Angels
5) City of Lost Souls

Someone suggested starting with YA books to get you going and they were right. They´re fun and an easy read to get you on a daily habit on reading
