Cecily Griffis says:

You hurt me the shades of magic 🙁 it's okay though. I just enjoy everything Victoria Schwab writes


You should try reading Juan Rulfo's works, especially, "Pedro Páramo". Greetings from Mexico.

Halsey Is My Real Name says:

My mom said she read Frankenstein a few Halloween’s ago and she enjoyed it

돈이없는에이티니 says:

Oh my god you have ‘Touch Me Not’ by Jose Rizal! I’m Filipino so I’ve read this before, it’s really good! Highly recommend! Hope you’d be able to share your thoughts on it once you’ve read it 🥰🥰 Also the sequel to this is called ‘The Reign of Greed’ or El Filibusterismo and the story gets so much better!

Just Me says:

This is so calming to watch, thank you for putting in so much work 🙂

andreea - daniela belciug says:

As a Romanian, I was really surprised/ excited to see a book from Mircea Eliade. You could also seek out 'Novel of the Nearsighted Adolescent' by him. I read it when I was a teenager and it affected me the same way 'Catcher in the Rye' did.

MoonstonePearl21 says:

I'm sorry little yellow friend for thinking you are an octopus when you are a jellyfish.

MoonstonePearl21 says:

Thank You so much for putting all the effort into this time consuming video. I really enjoy these tour type of videos 🙂

MoonstonePearl21 says:

I'm confused why that one copy of Phantom is French on the cover but Korean on the inside 🙃

MoonstonePearl21 says:

That stain on the Beautiful and the Damned looks like blood to me. Did the place you got it from get it from a murder victim or something?

zel's journal says:

So shocked to see Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not) on your bookshelf when I, as a Filipino, normally see it as something to read for academic purposes and not for leisure! Hope you enjoy it, though! 🙂

acciocreativity says:

oh i ADORED this!! can just i say that i really appreciate that you don’t have a bunch of brand new shiny hardcovers, you have a bunch of different editions, some used some paperback, and just a really satisfying variety. so many bookshelf tours here on youtube are only the former and none of the latter, and yours looks a lot more like mine (especially with all the well-loved annotated books from my english degree!) i wish you a lovely day and as stress-free of a move as possible!

Abbey Roche says:

If you are going to have Joseph Conrad on your shelf, you should have Ama Ata Aidoo as well

Madeleine says:

is there a reason why you even keep books which you really hated? i'm curious because i'm the type of person who sells books that i really hated to make place for new books!

West A Ferdy says:

I am so so so happy you have Touch me Not (Noli Me Tangere) by Jose Rizal!


Me gusta Gabriel García Márquez y también Isabel Allende!!
