I've recently read Battlefield 3 The Russian by Andy McNab. It's a book about espionage and war. The book was based on a game also called Battlefield 3.

I love reading books; the last book I had read is called Final of a saga of 5 books that are: Hush Hush (The name of the saga) Crescendo, Silence, Finale and Kiss Me Deadly. The book is of Becca Fitzpatrick.
It’s explained by Nora Grey, a student of secondary in Coldwater, Mine. It goes about the love of Nora and Patch Cipriano; Patch is a Fallen Angel and Nora is a Nephilim, a Fallen Angel is an Angel that for an obscure reason has lost his wings and a Nephilim is the union of a human and a Fallen Angel. Although Nora is now a Nephilim she isn’t a pure one, but when a pure Nephilim has poured his blood in her veins he turned in a pure one. In the book is going to start a war between Fallen Angels and Nephilim because every Jeshvan the Fallen Angels can enter in Nephilim bodies and they do everything they want because the Fallen Angels haven’t got outside feelings only sentiments. Nora Grey is the key for all that because she has turned the leader of the Nephilim.

The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm
In his classic work, The Art of Loving, social philosopher Erich Fromm explores love in all its aspects—not only romantic love, steeped in false conceptions and lofty expectations, but also brotherly love, self-love, the love of God, and the love of parents for their children.

Finally, I decided to sit down quietly, remember everything I read in the last 15 years, and make a list of my favorite books. To be honest, I have not read all the books from the list several times, but from each book I got an almost indescribable pleasure in the process of reading.
10. All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque (novel)
9. Erich Maria Remarque "Life on loan" (novel)
8. Somerset Maugham's Theater (novel)
7. Stendhal "Red and Black" (novel)
6. Mikhail Lermontov "A Hero of Our Time" (novel)
5. Somerset Maugham "Burden of Human Passions" (novel)
4. Somerset Maugham "The Moon and the Penny" (novel)
3. Mikhail Bulgakov "The Master and Margarita" (novel)
2. Antoine de Saint-Exupery "The Little Prince" (story)
1. Oscar Wilde "Portrait of Dorian Gray" (novel)
I would advise everyone to read these ten works, if someone hasn’t done it yet. By the way, you can find a bunch of reviews for each of these on YouTube.
You can buy instagram followers to quickly increase their ammount.

I just finished reading Tommy Orange's There There. It is an absolutely fantastic work that speaks about the lives of Native Americans and their story of estrangement and displacement from America they knew to the USA that was built by white men. Going beyond the emotional and touching experience of the work, it is a historically important work in the new wave of literary resistance as a pioneering work of the New Native Renaissance. An absolutely engrossing piece of literature everyone must read, also, this is one work I'd recommend everyone to read for their young ones at home.

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

It's about the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, and also H.H. Holmes, who is considered the first serial killer in the post-industrial revolution age. There is a lot of information about the architecture of the time, which admittedly I knew nothing about before, but was absolutely fascinated with.

A star american tennis player Andre Agassi wrote a great book - "OPEN". If you are into sport, especially tennis, consider reading it before trying hard on your kids to make a professional athlete career. {-:

I am currently listening to a murder mystery on my Kindle while I am knitting. The murder mystery is Left Early, Took My Dog, by Kate Atkinson. Ms. Atkinson has written a series of murder mysteries starring Jackson Brody, who has been a policeman and then a private investigator. Ms. Atkinson writes beautifully and meditatively. She lets you into the minds of her characters. Her novels are much more than murder mysteries, and I highly recommend them.
