Here my list for fav books :
3. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The book that (in a rather obtuse way) got me interested in collecting vintage clothes. The decadence and glamour in this made me seek out completely unaffordable 1920s evening dresses on Ebay to collect. Of course I ended up with ONE piece, and of course I could only afford a torn, stained one, but still, it was my first “collection” piece.
Glamour, tragic love, a classic.
4. Hamlet by William Shakespeare
Every soliloquy moves me to tears. Period.
5. Veronika Decides To Die by Paul Coelho
Current, immensely relevant to the youth of today, yet deeply philosophical and reflective. I always appreciate art in any form that makes the audience, the reader think.
