Piranesi, by Susanna Clarke
A short fantasy from the author of the excellent Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. Recommended.
American Psycho, by Bret Easton Ellis
Um this one is extremely disturbing. I don’t what I expected going in, maybe something like Dorian Grey if he was a yuppie. But this book was quite gruesome.
Knowledge, Reality, and Value: A Mostly Common Sense Guide to Philosophy, by Michael Huemer
A phenomenal introduction to philosophy. Skips all the boring bits, has great examples, and has some really good sections on critical thinking. I wish I’d read stuff like this when I was much younger.
