Katerina – James Frey
Love, sex, betrayal, drugs and the madness that is youth! Katerina is an explosive novel by America’s most controversial writer James Frey. Forty-two year old rich but lonely screenwriter Jay finds himself at the receiving end of cryptic Facebook messages. He dismisses them off at first but their familiar tone reminds him of someone from his past. Possibly someone he abandoned when he was on the verge of fame. The novel is an exhilarating love story alternating between a 1992 young novelist Jay brimming with passion and a 2018 famous yet numb Jay the screenwriter.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck – Mark Manson
Self-help books preach about how to be positive all the darn time. The common ideology – feel good and you will receive good. But Mark Manson is perhaps the only one to understand that it is absolutely okay to not feel good – to not give a f*ck – that it is okay to embrace defeat and move on because life is messed up and we have to deal with it. The point is not “how do you want to enjoy life?” The more important question is “what kind of pain are you willing to endure?”. Life is a series of potholes – and you are defined by what you struggle for.
This edgy best-selling book is sure to straighten you out. Give it a shot!
