In no particular order, we have compiled the most exciting, intelligent and interesting books, you should read before turning twenty-four. Touching base on the most important classics, such as Goethe’s Faust and the most frightening book in English literature, Orwell’s 1984 and contemporary classics, such as Murakami’s Norwegian Wood, we have grazed every corner of literature. Enter Charles Darwin, the incomparable Gatsby, Scout Finch, The Dalai Lama and Sigmund Freud in our list to educate you on manners of the heart, intellect and life.
FAVORITE COLOR(S): honeydew green, bright teal, dark red, velvety royal purple, the color of a well mixed latte right where the whipped cream is starting to dissolve.
LIPSTICK OR CHAPSTICK: cake batter chapstick
LAST SONG I LISTENED TO: The Buffy theme, and now Guns for Hands by Twenty One Pilots.
LAST MOVIE I WATCHED:The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, on HBO.
TOP 3 FICTIONAL CHARACTERS: I can’t even decide who my top 3 favorite SPN side-characters are. So here are some characters I adore: Castiel, Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Crowley, Tyrion Lannister, Nick Carroway from The Great Gatsby (seriously he is the best narrator ever), Scout and Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird, Nanapush from Louise Erdrich’s novels, Cain (the Biblical one, and many variants, but the SPN and World of Darkness takes are my favorite).
TOP 3 SHIPS: Dean and Castiel. And that’s it. I’m not really a shipper. If pressed I’d say Sam and Eileen from SPN and Jaime and Brienne from ASOIAF.
BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY READING: It’s probably time once again to read
