Default Good Books

Post the last good book you have read. Or even some good recommendations. I am currently reading "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu.

Well, my favorite author is Victor Hugo, so I highly suggest his works. If you love modern comedies, Mil Millington is a great British writer with some extremely funny works.

However, for recent releases, here are some good books that I have read in the past month:

1) Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen : memoir of a man who joined the circus during the Great Depression, and his affair with a married woman.

2) Marley and Me, by John Grogan : cute story of the adoption and life of a young labrador retriever by a couple starting a family.

3) Thirteen Reasons Why, by Jay Asher : heartbreaking story about a girl who committed suicide, who also left a series of 13 cassette tapes to her boyfriend on why she did it.
