Thanks for checking out this recommendation video, everyone! Should I do more recommendation videos in the future? And what are some of your favourite books?

If you would like to check out any of the books I recommend in the video, you can get a physical or e-book copy by following the links in the description, or the audiobook version by following this link and signing up for a 30-day trial with Audible:

Out of the 5 options in the video, I would most strongly recommend getting Wonder by R.J. Palacio in audio format. It’s a beautiful book that uses multiple narrators, and the ending made me cry.

    Thanks for your advice! Now i’m reading one non-fiction book “the 5 love languages”. And after that i’m going to start reading first one from your list – Charlotte’s web ^_^
    Yeah, please, do more recommendation videos – it’s very informative.
    One of my favorite book is The Count of Monte Cristo, but i read this on Russian.

Its funny because i have just started my lessons on this website, and bought my first book today which is The man who climbed out the window anddisappeared. I guess I am on intermediate level but i have never had any test yet, and I am learning by myself, so i hope this book and this website will help my grammatic rules. Nice Video!

Thank you a lot, Alex!
I love reading and out of your recommendations I got interested in “The Curious Incident…” the most. It reminded me of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” where the story is told by a crazy person himself and I liked it so much. Also my favourite books that I’ve read in English are “Green Mile” by S. King and “1984” by G. Orwell. Now I’m reading “Clockwork Orange” by A. Burgess.

Hi Alex!
Thank you so much for this lesson:)
I’m going to order these books in my local library, except ‘Wonder’- I’ve already bought it for my son, he needs it to his school:) And it’s for both of us:)
We all love to read. I read in English The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and many others. I read now Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. My way to improve English by reading is reading books which I have read in polish before.

I used to watch Ronnie all the time and I still love her, but now I watch only you;) And I like Studio Ghibli too :D

I have moved from Poland to Ireland with my family last year, I have to show my sons (11, 13) the note about you! :)))

Best regards!

And one thing.
In third book which you recommend is the name Siobhan. I suppose it is an Irish name and pronunciation is: SHEE- VON.
I still learn Irish names and they are really crazy;) But beautiful as well.
Caoimhe, Aoife, Saoirse, Roisin, Tadhg ;)))

I wish every native speaker of English could speak like you do. I can understand every word ou pronounce. Thank you for sharing this great work.
I loved your list. I am a little afraid of reading books in English but, I am being at the Intermediate level for about 4 years… I need to advance.
