I have just finished The Brothers Karamazov and am stuck between reading one of the following followed by the others:

Les Miserables - Hugo
Crime and Punishment - Dostoyevsky
The Idiot - Dostoyevsky

Not sure which to read next, I'm leaning more towards The Idiot but would welcome any advise

Who the hell reads Karamazov before Crime and Punishment?
I recommend you take a break from Fyodor.
Don't jump into Les Miserables either, unless you are a vicarious-masochist who loves sorrow and pain. It really is a depressing read - for the most part. Yes, it is incredible, but I would recommend something lighter. Don't sink too deep in the slough. Read "Three Men in a Boat" by Jerome K. Jerome or something.

Notes from the Underground.

I had already read it many years ago, but I figured I should give it a second reading now that I can actually understand literature. Turns out, it was a great idea. It's been a very rewarding reading.

It was a far stockier animal than we previously thought. Almost like a twenty foot long hyena. The 'wings' are abnormally short for a raptor, this might've been due to its large size, if that's true, this effects the way other large raptors will be reconstructed from this point on.

It's absolutely fascinating.

How are you liking Pride? I read it in high school and I didn't like it too much. I can't remember much but I just remember thinking 70% of it felt like boring filler and the rest was decent.
But I wasn't super into literature back then so maybe my thoughts are misguided

Narcissus and Goldmund. My terrible hot take on it -- being a little less than a third through -- is that it's "The Chad Virgin and the Giga Chad". I'm basically at the part where Goldmund meets the knight and his two daughters, and some of these scenes with Lydia are just...a bit much.

I've read mindfulness in plain English before, it was shorter, still very good. Mind illuminated is more deliberate, it's a step by step guide. Does good job explaining concepts like peripheral awareness and attention, sometimes on other contexts like on a guided meditation somebody says "maintain awareness", you don't exactly know what he means if you haven't learned it somewhere else already. The book is as secular as it gets. So far I'm only 20% in and I've just recently started doing mindfulness.
