Your favorite English books, or some you think they are worth reading.
But I m not really into philosophy or politics.
I want to read more during the winter vacation for improving my English.
Thank you very much!
I would recommend you the following books:
"Lord of the Flies" by Golding
"A Christmas Carol" by Dickens
"Tales of Mystery and Imagination" by Poe
And the following plays
"A Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams
"Educating Rita" by Willy Russell
1. Mario Puzo - "The Godfather" is my favorite one.
Although Al Pacino and company did a great job creating "The Godfather" films the book is still worth reading.
2. All time classics.
There are millions of books waiting for you to pick them from bookstore's shelves. Pick any. These books are classic ones for the reason.
If you like detective stories I recommend you the novels written by Robert Galbraith, which is the pen name of J.K.Rowling, the writer of the Harry Potter series.
They are very good.
The Harry Potter series are also good, if you like magic ^_^
