My complete reading list
All the books I've read and all the books I'm about to read and my brief thoughts about all of them.
Since 2017, I have kept an ongoing list of books I’ve read and books I want to read. I tend to make a study of a certain genre until I’ve thoroughly exhausted it, then I move on to another field of study.
For instance, I wanted to read all of the classic novels and make a fervent study of the greats. I made a list including Les Miserables, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Picture of Dorian Gray, A Christmas Carol, Frankenstein, etc., and then started reading them, keeping track of my favorites as I went. These ultimately inspired my own gothic novel Obscurity (which was written in the same style as my favorite French literature!).
Similarly, I also went through an English literature/Jane Austin/Bronte's phase and read a bunch of those. Now, I'm making a study of children’s literature (Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Narnia) because I want to increase my imaginative capabilities. I’m also reading all the surreal fiction I can get my hands on because I want to write a surreal fantasy novel and I’m interested I need to get my mind thinking differently.
If you’re interested in keeping up on what I have read, what I am reading next, and my brief thoughts about every single book after I’ve read it, you can view my reading list below. This includes all fiction, nonfiction, and philosophy books I’ve read since 2017 (and will be reading going forward):
