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: http://audibletrial.com/engvidalex

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.


    Yes you should totally make more of this. I like it


    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.


    I recommend you making more recommendation videos in future! My pick for Favourite Books are The Name of Wind, Harry potter series


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, Alex, I really like your lessons and advice! We will, of course, love more recommendation videos. Thank you again!


Thank you teacher, I hope to get one of this books….!!!

I would like to learn English, but my English is not strong, I hope to get your support, How can I contact you, if I can talk directly to you, I hope to hear your advice .my email vantien19861812@gmail.com


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 have just read “Charlotte’s web”. It’s charming. Thanks, Alex!

Thanks Alex for your recommendations. I really like the way you explain and of course your accent. This is easy understandable !


Amazing recommendations. I really like printed version, so, I’ll look for them at my hometown’s public library. Thank you for share it.


Thank you teacher


Thanks Alex for your recommandations. I read The running man now. I love it but it is a bit complicated for me. Wich novel of S. King would be more easy ? (I like King a lot).
