Oliver Twist, no question. A classic for many reasons. Give it another shot.
WE BROKE GODS LAW. 2000 YEARS AGO, GOD PROVIDED A SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST WHO SUFFERED AND TOOK OUR PUNISHMENT ON THE CROSS. THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE DECLARE WITH OUT MOUTH JESUS IS LORD AND BELIEVE IN OUR HEART GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD YOU SHALL BE SAVED. Romans 10-9. GOD WILL FORGIVE YOUR SINS AND GRANT YOU EVERLASTING LIFE ALL BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS DID ON THE CROSS
You really should read Memoirs. It's a beautiful read. It's a shame what happened behind the scenes, but there's a lot of authors out there in that morally gray area. JK Rowling is transphobic but that won't keep me from reading Harry Potter. Tons of authors like that out there when you look into it, so I find it strange that Memoirs is the only book that gets singled out. A beautiful read is a beautiful read, read it as fiction.
DNF? Duke Nukem Forever.
Damn, I read Memoirs of a Geisha yeeeeears ago and really enjoyed it, but I never knew about the background. That sucks.
I just finished Oliver Twist was surprisingly funny and dark, definitely an advanced book not the children’s novel I expected 📖
i don't get how anyone can read 2 books or 3 books alongside each other. i can only ever read one book at a time and i will 100% of the time, finish the book. i think the only two books i've ever not finished were hunger games, because it was such a struggle to read. The first person present tense was horrible to read and i couldn't get into it at all, and Game of Thrones because it was one of the most boring books i've ever read.
I loved my grandmother...
I always loved Oliver Twist. I really need to read it again. It’s been a while since I’ve read it.
2:16 yeah definitely
You're from KY, WHY did you say "sorry" like a Canadian
Slang that authors make up for sci fi and fantasy books has a tendency to really bother me. It just can sound stupid if it's not done really well. That being said, I was playing a sci fi themed rpg with my friends and one of them decided that instead of their character saying "fuck," he would say "space fuck," and it was the funniest thing ever.
DO NOT PICK UP LIFELIKE. I love nevernight and I couldn't stand lifelike so chessy
I used to be uncomfortable DNFing books, but now I'm totally fine. I don't do it too often though cause I'm pretty easy to please. 😂
I want to see you review a mermaid book, please do that!
I would love for you to read Memoirs of a Geisha, but read it as fiction. I loved it.
So happy you found Geisha: A Life. I think it's great and I'm really looking forward to what you think about it! I just read it literally this week and I thought it was great.
I read Memoirs of a Geisha as a child when I was maybe 12, it's OKish as a fiction maybe, as long as you don't think it portrays reality. (Which is what I thought at the time 💧) I wouldn't pick it up again now that I know this book's background..
“Klunk”? I thought that was a word from The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
Oliver Twist all the way and have you seen the musical of this which I think is fantastic? It's a super enriching story that's sad and sweet, totally worth it I hope you continue on with it
I really struggled to read Oliver Twist but I want to try it again because I love Dickens’s writing style but it’s just hard to read.

Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and temperate
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of may
By chance or nature's changing course untrimmed
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
When in eternal lines to time thou grow
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see
So long lives this and this gives life to thee...
Thou shall live in my verse...
Not a single good book recommended except Mein Kempf

@Helly What are goods books of indian ancient and medieval period based on archeology findings without Aryan Invasion theory propaganda.
I only clicked on the video cause she's pretty...
There I said it
A series of books which is based on totally accurate history of the world is by Gorge R R Martin “A song of Ice and fire” must read
Hindi bolne me taklif hota hai.
If a person leaves work unfinished, there is a remedy in bach flower therapy named ELM. Try it. You will finish books with other works.
I love history so much !!!!!!!
I am too obsessed with the history of Maharana Pratap.
Can you plzzzzzzzz tell some books which tells about original history of India??
Try read the rest of the Dune saga
God Emperor of Dune is like having a lsd trip, so amazing
I didn't get into the asoiaf books until a friend who enjoyed watching the show with me offered to lend me the first two books to see what differences there were in adaptation. After flying through the first book I told her I was surprised that I was so hooked to GRRM's writing style seeing how prior to this series I only really read novels every blue moon and would preferably focus on my DC comics/graphic novels and Manga. After those two books were read I went out and purchased the books myself and read through the series, I remember being on the edge of my seat not wanting to put down a Storm of Swords, how that book in particular followed through on a lot of things set up in a Clash of Kings, diving DEEP into YouTube channels that covered theories and reading some of the side content like the Dunk and Egg story etc. It's been years since I picked that series back up, definitely going to reread it one of these days so I can be locked n loaded for Winds of Winter
Anybody else want to write a book good enough just to make Murphy happy? That would be sweet success. Not a criticism just a goal.
I just Dn'F'd Red Rising for the second time. Why folks like this book is beyond me. This character is dull. He's just a face to go with the emotion of anger. That's it. The writing seems juvenile in parts. I just cannot....
I hated Red Rising. The main character is a boring, unlikeable jerk, and I couldn't get past that. Kind of juvenile writing, no depth or prose. Also, it was so overhyped. DNF
9:13 me too. Im going to give a sec chance to a song of ice and fire. Bought 2 of the books in 2019 but stop reading a game of thrones halfway of reading. Im going to reread it next year
Have you watched the latest movie on HBO? If so, has it changed your perspective on the book?
Merphy and her undulating opinions of books.
I was abt to go on a rant defending House of Leaves bc Im about 3/5 through and I’m really enjoying it but then Merphy explained about her dyslexia (Im new to this channel and only recently learnt she’s dyslexic and I understand how House of Leaves could screw with that)
And about the footnotes- I did find it annoying when a footnote appears but the reference to it is like 5 pages after and I had to backtrack to find it. Also Ive almost given up on this book before bc of all Johnny’s footnotes that are 3 pages long and do little but describe his sexual encounters (I *really* don’t enjoy those) and even the ones that explain his descent into darkness and paranoia spiral into these weird philosophical ramblings that I never fully understand
But aside from that the story itself describing the events of the Navidson Record is really good
Also I read a comment saying she could have someone read this with her so that if there were parts she couldn’t read she could ask them what happened
Dune is worth the read. I would advise to have a copy with the glossary of terms in the back. It definitely helped me when I read it. Glad you're giving it a second chance.
I try to come into a new book like it's a ride. I just buckle in and follow where it takes me. The less I know about a book before i read it the better. Surprises always fall directly on my heart that way.
I don't know how "Game of thrones" comes under second-chances
You either get and like house of leaves or you don’t. There is no in between
The first book of Red Rising was the weakest. It gets so much better after that. It's one of my favourite series of all time.
Dune is a genre bend between Sci-Fi and literary fiction. If you don't like philosophy, or omniscient head hopping perspective, or internal monologue--it won't be your thing. I loved it though.
And hey, I'm pretty dyslexic also.
I started reading books 3 months ago so idk if game of thrones book is good or not. What i am sure is i hated the show i dropped it after season two. It was quite quite a long time ago so i am thinking to give it another chance.
I wouldn't start with Dune, thats more of an intermediate read. If you want, here's my suggestions for SF if you're curious.
Ray Bradbury: The Martian Chronicles, short stories
Philip K. Dick: A Scanner Darkly, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, The Man in The High Castle, short stories
HG Wells: The Invisible Man, The Time Machine
2000AD: Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog
Jeff VanderMeer: Borne, The Southern Reach Trilogy
Robert Heinlein: Stranger in a Strange Land, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, Starship Troopers
Kurt Vonnegut: Slaughterhouse Five,
Douglas Adams: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
Anthony Burgess: A Clockwork Orange
Aldous Huxley: Brave New World
Moebius: The Incal (or L'Incal)
Mind you, I may change this, but these are my main suggestions for now.
I love footnotes and how it read like a textbook haha, It feels like something real, like how a found footage movie
House of Leaves is an all-time favorite of mine. I've never read or seen anything like it. Unlike most books, the physical copy of House of Leaves is a piece of art rather than the story contained in the text. Whenever I run into someone who has read it, I have to pick their brain to see how they interpreted the whole thing.
That being said, I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea and can imagine reading it with dyslexia would be incredibly frustrating.
You're not alone with Dune. I thought the book was a gigantic waste of time. B-O-R-I-N-G
The Good Omen has absolutely hilarious footnotes just saying 😂
Thank god atleast someone agrees with me about the fault in our stars. It was such an extremely boring book.
I too had a love story is a true story😂. You can’t just disliked someone’s life story just because of his writing style lmao😂
legen wait for it dary
Actually , I read 'the fault in our stars' recently .I liked it but the ending was not that much captivating..It should have been better.But I liked the message and the lucid language that is used in the book.I think that it is really easy to read the book . I agree with u that the book was predictable. But what I like the most about this book is certain quotes that are really heart touching and insightful . Various emotions that swirled through my mind when I read the book.. Even though I don't favour romantic books, I liked this one. The major takeaway that I did from this book is, this is the only moment that we own and we have to enjoy it as much as possible and everything in this world is temporary. But, as u said , many people don't like this book. Personally , I really liked the way all the characters have different touching stories to tell and the curiosities that arises in teenage minds and all .. anyway, I really like all your book reviews..keep going..It really helps me to pick the right books.❤️
Just add the alchemist the worst book ever I expected more
You will start loving Half girlfriend if u read One Indian girl 🤣🤣
I wished I would have watched this video earlier as I have already read I too had a love story and half girlfriend. And yes a recommendation from my side for you - Gunaho ka Devta ( I had Thousands splendid suns in my mind but you have already read it so this Hindi one)
Not all John Green's books have a girl or a boy die in the end, e.g. Paper Towns, Turtles All The Way Down, Will Grayson Will Grayson.
And Half Girlfriend isn't THAT bad, overall. Some of the things that happen and are done are really bad, but the story, overall, is fine. Please try to see the beautiful aspects of it too
I love I too had a love story 😅😅
I was waiting for the power of your subsconcious mind🤩😂
Watch to all the boys movie i loved that
Watch to all the boys movie i loved that
Hey , can you review Taylor's book recommendations ?
Mannnnn that thing u said about john green 😂totally truuuu
Di can you please tell me is " Whispers in the dark" book by Ruskin Bond good? Actually I'm planning to buy that book but I'm not sure how is it? 🥺
I Don't like All the bright places. It is so torturous. I regret reading it... and at last I skip..skip..n skip....🤣🤣
Sis, what do you think about the book "light from many lamp " please tell me
what about "One Indian girl"
I got triggered when I saw all the bright places and I don't agree with you about the female protagonist like he dropped subtle hints about his mental state she is a teenager how tf is she supposed to look into them
I don't like The Alchemist.... I read it only once.... Should I give it another try cuz its a really popular book.... I don't know why but... I kind of got bored
