10 Favorite Books of 2019

Updated: Jan 7, 2020

I'll elaborate more on all of these in future posts/videos, but here are the links in the meantime.


Also the dates each were published cause that shit is interesting.

_______________________


1933 & 1946.


The ten spot is a tie for me.

These short pieces provide first hand experiences of poverty & political frustration from inside the mind of an elite/hall of fame writer.


As a bonus, my boy Georgey throws in his 5 go-to writing rules on the last page of Why I Write.


The only non-fiction picks in my top 10, these writings add a new dimension of background/understanding to Orwells later masterpieces.











9. The Prince - Niccolo Machiavelli, 1513


Incredibly interesting piece of history. This dude Niccolo was a real life Little Finger & this book was intended as a gift to some king he was trying to win over at the time (Lorenzo de Medici)


One of those bits that makes me think this is all a simulation... so this intimate piece of history from 500+ years ago is available in English for $10 on the internet? Shits wild














8. Crime & Punishment - Fyodor Dostoyevsky, 1866














Too much to say about the rest of these for this blog post, so just snag a copy of each & join our book club.















6. The Stranger - Albert Camus, 1941














5. Metamorphosis - Franz Kakfa, 1912















4. Coming Up for Air - George Orwell, 1939















3. The Idiot - Fyodor Dostoyevsky, 1869













2. Master & Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov, 1937















1. Dead Souls - Nikoli Gogol, 1842















Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

Highly recommend copping all *11 of them.
