I've just read more one of my favorite books is a classic by Alexandre Dumas, The count of monte Cristo. I'm writing a research proposal about the concept of famous books and their influence on readers. I want to explore existing books that discuss the emotional and psychological effects of famous books. For that puspose I found this service that employ professional writers with expertise in various subjects. They can deliver well-researched, properly formatted, and error-free essays that meet academic or professional standards. They use plagiarism-detection tools to ensure the authenticity of the essays they provide.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche
I, Robot by Isaac Asimov (really anything by him rules)
H.P. Lovecraft’s works, particularly the more surreal ones like the rats in the walls and the color from outer space
Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass

basically I’m a huge fan of high fantasy and classical horror. Lots of philosophy, too, but there are few books on that subject that I would consider my favorite.

Kokoro from Natsume Sôseki. Oh, and a mention of my favorite book when I was still a young teenager, for nostalgia purposes. Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park.
Currently I'm reading The Daily Laws from Robert Greene.

My favorite three series are the Halo novels, the Pendragon series by D.J. MacHale, and the Harry Potter series. All in roughly 50 something books.

I'm a pretty big fan of classical literature too, every few years or so I'll read Dante's Inferno, Homer's Odyssey and Milton's Paradise Lost/Regained.

Dying Earth series by Jack Vance was a fun read. Mostly "Eyes of the Overworld" and "Cugel's Saga". Cugel being the protagonist of both books, he's a liar and a cheat that goes through this fantasy setting. He get's duped into going on quests and he in turn, is kind of a bastard to others to get things done. Humorous from a schadenfreude point of view.

Another series was the Broken Empire trilogy. Story of an orphaned boy who leads a group of bandits to become king. Not like One Piece's "Pirate King". He actually was a bandit, not a vigilante. Had a hard time putting those books down. Was a lot of fun.

Dante's Inferno and Paradise Lost is a must read.
