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.
