Hello, everybody! :) My name is Mikhail, but you can call me Misha. First of all, I want to say that the books have very important place in my life and I want to share with you top 5 of the best books.


1. “Martin Eden” by Jack London.

Martin Eden

This book is about the young man who has very brave heart. He wants to become a popular writer and on his way, he encounters more than one obstacle. His faith in himself and his strength allows him to go forward and don’t stop. He got all that he wanted, but in the end, he realized that all these things do not make sense without the love of his girlfriend, who did not believe in him. Tragic story, but very exciting.


2. “Shantaram” by Gregory David Roberts.


“Shantaram” is the international bestseller and I could not help myself not to read this book. I have never regretted about my choice. This is another book which inspired me to love and feel alive more than before. I can speak a lot of time about this book, but I want to say only one word - THE BEST, and that’s all. If you want to feel friendship, love, hate, faith, soul of India, the most intimate corners of human nature, this book is for you.


3. “The Red and the Black” by Stendhal.

The Red and the Black

I think it is the most difficult book in my list. Hard in the understanding of the book’s essence. I’ve read this book about 7 years ago, but I still remember what this book has given me. Believe in yourself and your strength. You are capable of anything!!!


4. “Head First HTML and CSS” by Elisabeth Robson, Eric Freeman.

Head First HTML and CSS

My first book about HTML and CSS. I've made my first steps in the front-end study thanks to this book. I am very grateful to this book. Like and share!


5. “The Leopard” by Jo Nesbø.

The Leopard

This is my favorite part of Harry Hole’s story. I’ve read all the series, but in this part, I’ve got all I want. Entangled, exciting, interesting plot. You will not know who the killer until the end of the story. Oh, while writing this post, I wanted to re-read all series about inspector Harry Hole again :) This author writes very cool books!!! Recommend to people who like thrillers and detective stories.


In the end, I want to tell that this is a small part of the books which I like and can recommend. There are so many interesting books. Now I’m reading “The Lord of the Rings” by J. R. R. Tolkien. I think this book will also become one of my favorites.
