Top 5 Must Reads

The first step is admitting you have a problem. I, folks, am a bibliophile.
  1. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
    First off, it's over 1,000 pages long. So if you take this on, then be ready. Aside from the length, this story is one of the most fascinating, captivating, and surreal pieces I've ever read. For those who can't handle graphic descriptions of all kinds, you may want to avoid this thing of beauty.
  2. The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
    Like many others who have had the honor, Tolkien's work guided me to the world of fantasy/sci-fi novels and I've never turned back.
  3. A Separate Peace by John Knowles
    When I first read this years and years ago, it had a profound impact on me. It's short in length and exquisitely crafts together a story about two coming-of-age boys and how one of them deals with unfortunate tragedy.
  4. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
    To begin, I'd like to thank @Bourdain for putting together a fucking awesome piece of non-fiction. He dives into the underworld of what a chef actually does and most importantly outlines when you should order fish from a restaurant.
  5. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
    Hey guys, this one's kinda depressing so if you pick it up, brace yourself. But McCarthy puts together one of the few books that's ever made me almost shed a tear due to it's ending.
