  1. I avoided reading like the plague when I was younger. Now I read books to RELAX! Plot twist of the century. Please let me know any book recommendations you have here!!

  2. I love how passionate you are about these books! I'll definitely read some of them so thank you!!

  3. I don’t know if you’ve read or seen it yet, but it’s called The Joy Luck Club! Really good read 😊

  4. SPOILER the end of dark places had me shook!!! I knew she shouldn’t trust crystal and BOY was I right. I got chills reading her perspective of that night. Libby isn’t the only survivor of that night….

  5. I told my friends about Korea under Japanese rule and they were shook. My halmoni taught me a lot 🙂

  6. Seeing you do this kind of video once again, totally shook me cuz I got tired of watching the previous book recommendations video over and over again, it's one of my favourite videos on youtube. THANK YOU FOR THIS TYPE OF CONTENT!!! PLEASE DO IT MORE OFTEN

  7. You always keep me pumped up for reading! Needed a boost of energy to push me to finish a book that i was slacking off. TQ!!! <3

  8. Recommend “The New New Thing” by Michael Lewis (Moneyball author). Covers the moonshot brilliance and self deluded absurdity of Silicon Valley visionaries.

  9. Hey Babe.. I think you should look up a little bit more on Aparthied in South Africa.. There is so much more, and honesly that was not 'The Law ' it just one of many of the ridiculous and heart breaking laws have that were formed and unfortunately still effect the country to this day.. Even though there is freedom now.It will take generations to undo the effetcts on the people who still face alot of separation, crime problems, Not good educational institutions for people of colour/ neighbourhoods to live in etc. While many of the privilaged people still come from the most superior races. But we do have one of the most beautiful countries on earth and you should visit if you can ' Especially Cape Town!! ..Apartied made sure there was no mixing in anyway..so housing areas where segregated, work, beaches, parks, buses, even benches and entrances to places. Very like and unlike the American Civil rights movement. There where so many violent actions.. and Black was considered the Lowest, they had to carry a pass everywhere they went. Houses where raided at night by police where you could be dragged off at any moment, and if you where found in any place you weren't supposed to be you could be dragged of to jail without your families knowledge. There were also colored ( look like mixed race, but are that skin color from being mixed with Dutch or English generations ago- Like me) other townships, Indian, Chinese etc , anyone who was not from the same race would be segregated and considered better than, or less than according to the government laws. That's why it was dangerous fro Trevor raised in a black township.. I highly recommend the book.. Nelson Mandela's " Long Walk to Freedom!"

  10. Atomic habits by James Clear. Thought of you while reading this. The book picks up where The Power of Habits left off and covers explicitly why and how to work on your habits. A perfect book for type A personality :3

  11. The power of vulnerability by Brene Brown! She has a Ted talk so you can check it out first!

  12. i love you Jenn, you're my inspiration, and thanks for the recommendation! i will def read Trevor Noah's and Oprah Winfrey's 🙂

  13. "I've never considered looking at history outside of America" – Did I hear that wrong…??

  14. For avid fans of “The Five People You Meet In Heaven” by Mitch Albom: I actually read this book last summer for the first time and it easily became my favorite book! Well, surprise, surprise – Mitch also recently released the second book to this story – “The Second Person You Meet In Heaven”. It focuses on the life of Annie – the girl that Eddie saves in the first book. It reinforces the message that we’re all connected in one way or another, even if we don’t realize it on our time on Earth. It’s just as much of a page turner as the first and I may or may not have shed a few more tears reading this one than the first. And not to give any spoilers, but there’s a nice little twist at the end! If you loved the first book, you’re bound to love this one as well!

  15. I think it’d be cool if Jenn published her own book, whether it be an autobiography or a fictional book. I’d definitely read it!

  16. I love this! My recommendation is Factfulness by Hans Rosling. It was an absolute eye-opener for me!

  17. your smile is so pretty, and i love how you speak English. after i watching your video, i just subscribe as soon as i can!!! BTW, the theme of this video is pretty great. plz upload more!

  18. Highly recommend Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto and Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata! Also since you really enjoy thrillers, I recommend reading In the Miso Soup by Ryu Murakami – it kept me up all night for days!!

  19. You should definitely read "Between the devil and the deep blue sea" By April Genevieve Tucholke!!

  20. I need to read these for definite I love books so much, couldn't find a good recommendation for a while!!

  21. Just read Dark Places!!! I’m going to try and knock out all 10 books this year.

  22. thank you I appreciate you reviewing books that are thought-provoking but also can be interesting and enjoyable. I've been watching a lot of book reviewers on YouTube and so far I'm not really happy with a lot of them. They all seem to be obsessed with young adult fiction even though they're like 40 something like me. Don't get me wrong YA great but I would like to broaden my horizons and read other than vampires and fairies and crap. Also you do it in an insightful, entertaining manner. Ty.

  23. 일제감점기시대의 책을 추천해주셔서 감사합니다! 언니를통해 조금이라도 진실된역사를 많은사람들이 알았으면좋겠어용❤️👍🏻 추천해주신책 전부 캡쳐해놨어용 읽어볼게요 추천감사합니다🙌🏻

  24. Came back here to say I read "Dark Places" because of this video and I loved it. I plan on working my way through this list throughout 2019. Thanks for the recommendations girl!

  25. You should try reading 'Kim Jiyoung born 1982' by Cho Namjoo. Most famous feminism novel&Best seller in Korea! Even the president have read it. Already translated into other asian languages.I know English version is not available yet but since you can read korean you'll be able to understand the general plot. It's not a difficult book to read actually.

  26. I'm the kind of person who forget a book or a movie after time, which is so good because I can read a book that I know that I like a billion times and still be surprised by how good it is.

    However, since the day you recommended Kafka by the Shore (I rented it like a week after) for the first time I still remember it. It had such a huge impact on me that I still think of it almost on a daily basis. How many years even passed since that video?!?!

  27. jenn! i feel like you won't see this comment (mostly because this is a kinda old video) BUT where did you get your necklace? it's so cute and i'd love to get a personalized necklace like that 💞

  28. JUST READ THE LAST MRS.PARRISH AND I LOVED IT. I’m going to try to finish one book a month that you have recommended.

  29. Read the Bible. It’s the most life changing book and you never get enough. You can read it over and over again. It literally is God’s Word to humans.

  30. Thanks for the feedback Jenn! 
    I was wondering how do you make your transitions with the book pages?

  31. HelIo! My name is Mclean and I am doing a book drive for some of the schools in my home country of Namibia. I have realised that a lot of these particular schools do not even have a basic library to start off with. My goal for this year would be to collect at least 500 books before August 2019.I would appreciate it, if you could please help me reach this goal by donating some of your old books. Thank you so much in advance for your help. I am reachable at [email protected]!

  32. Hope you can make a video on all your fave, recommended self help books! 💛 can’t wait for the next book video!

  33. I was going to suggest Pachinko it made the list – phenomenal book!!

  34. the four agreements is my absolute favourite book. thank you for putting it on this list!!! i definitely recommend everyone to read it!💕💕❤️

  35. I've read two of the books here (Trevor Noah and Power of Habit) both equally well written books and actually saw the movie Room on Netflix, and it was an emotional rollercoaster. I'm not sure if I want to read in now in text. I might read Oprah's book. Thanks for the recommendations.

  36. I honestly trust your books reviews like no other and really take them to heart. Thank you for always doing this!!!

  37. OMG i think the book dark places has the movie played by charlize theron!! because i remembered watching it a long time ago and clicked when u described it!

  40. Jenn, Show us how you make every intro so amazing. what do you use to make them?

  41. I like your favourate it it will be my favourate too all the way from South Africa

  42. Hi Jen, I love your videos and would be honored if you check out a book I wrote on Amazon called "Such unfortunates" by Andrew Mann. It's a true story and it will blow you away!

  43. I removed reading this line from a book, “ But it started off like “when I was 17 and thought ______ , I left everything behind and in a moment lost everything I love“

    Please help me find the full thing/book I can’t find it.

  44. Read many lives, many masters by brian l. Weiss. It is about a psychiatrist and her patient. It really changed my perspective in life.

  45. So much love all the books that you recommend ♥️ Can you please do some reccomendation videos about romance books ♥️ Thank you ♥️

  46. I love your book recomendations…my god, you're really good at this. plsss make more videos like this

  47. I find it amazing & profound that the first book you named was The Untethered Soul because the first time I came across the book was an incident when a substitute teacher was reading it and as I passed by, I felt compelled to say something about the book. This very small remark or insignificant question, which I normally wouldn’t have ever done, led to a full on conversation, soon irrelevant to the novel, about the Universe, astrology, religion, existence, and just overall one of the best conversations I’ve ever had in my life. Ever since, I’d been meaning to read the book, and this video just sealed and assured me that I absolutely must. Thank you & much love, Jenn, you beautiful being!

  48. I love your diversity in books. I've added most of the books on my list to read. My goal is to read and complete 3 books a year. Have a habit of starting and not finishing. Can't match up to your goal. 😂

  49. You should read The Secret Life of Bees! Its a quick, excellent read and would go well with your 50 books in 2019 goal. 🙂

  50. ahhh if you like the last one you should read just mercy by bryan stevenson!!!!

  51. born a crime was soo good! i read it for AP lang this past school year… i recommend for sure

  52. Thank you for the recommendations.. i read what I know for sure this year it was good but not that amazing .. i feel that we already know what was there but still there is a lovely quote in the book.
