Image of me falling epically while filming a music video today. Hilarious moment… :)

I thought I’d keep it simple for this one, and give a top 10 (8), or so of some of my favorite most impacting books. How I determine impact, is well, an intuitive process, but mainly I search for a feeling of unfamiliarity. In a way the more unfamiliar a book feels, the more it broadens my horizons, expanding my notions of being human, and experiencing life through the human lens. For this reason, it is mainly fiction books that I will include, as they provide actual stories, expressions of human emotions, simply written in fictionalized ways, but representative of the whole history of humanity. One word reviews will be left after each.
