OMMFFG right?? ugh I wrote my thesis on him and still loved him which is saying something lol

KAFKA On the shore omfg what a book it's soo good. And I just finished 1Q84 and I loved it soo much. I actually haven't read the elephant vanishes but im super excited to!
 

My faves are definitely kafka and 1Q84. Sputnik Sweetheart was also super good. I also read his nonfiction book, Underground: the tokyo gas attack which was a super interesting read as well!

 

have you had a chance to read his newest book, Killing commendatore? I just ordered it and I'm so excited. I'm definitely gonna add the elephant vanishes to my order as well :D

 

sorry I just full on fangirled omfg

 

The Elephant Vanishes is definitely one of my favorites for his short story collections and I'd also recommend Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman! Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World was absolutely amazing as well. I've still yet to finish reading Norwegian Wood but it seems very good so far, and I do want to read Sputnik Sweetheart and I've bought Killing Commendatore but haven't had the chance to read it just yet. I'm sure its amazing though!! He's one of those special authors I've found that I can't find anything I dislike about his writing so far, he's so consistent in terms of quality and I love the aspect of magical realism. Doing a thesis on him must have been super interesting :)

John Green and Nicholas Sparks, because I'm a sucker for cliche romance novels.

I really enjoy reading poetry, though. Walt Whitman, W.B Yeats, and Ezra Pound are some really good ones

But yes he's definitely a special author <3 so much love to him and hopefully he writes even more amazing books lol

Edgar Allan Poe, Ray Bradbury, Erin Morgenstern, Oscar Wilde, and Jane Austen. I just love the way they use language it’s so unique to all of them and they make even the plainest of sentences sound beautiful

Fatty gained weight, bc she can't control her fat face.  Stupid cow.  I was tiny, and nearing perfection.  Then I went and fucked it all up, gained weight, got even fatter.  I'm gross.

Patrick Süskind, Elfriede Jelinek, Franz Kafka, Bret Easton Ellis, Cormac McCarthy, Herman Melville, Mary Shelley. Not because I like all of their works, but because they all have one work that shines above the rest.
