Just a few examples of the types of books I like and why:
Brave New World is probably my favorite book, I think it made
eerily accurate predictions about the world we live in, but also a
lot of the things it portrayed as evil and wrong aren't necessarily
Shantaram: its great adventure story, especially since it's loosely
based on the authors life, it really makes your life seem trite.
Unless of course your life is just way more awesome than mine for
The Alchemist: it's a fun short book that reminds you that
everything will be ok in the end.
Anything by Isaac Asimov: I like sci-fi!
Honestly anything, I can get really into mostly any movie put in
front of me.
How I Met Your Mother (not anymore I guess), Game of Thrones, and
Doctor who are the shows I'm currently following. I've also been
known to enjoy Arrested Development, Futurama, Californication,
Anything Netflix makes
If they play at Firefly or Bonnaroo I'm probably into them.
Cajun is my favorite, really anything spicy. Sriracha is
practically a religion to my friends and myself.
