Hi, I'd like to read some pessimistic books now that I'm feeling tired of those motivational authors.

By pessimistic do you mean non-fiction books that talk about bad things happening, or fiction books where only bad things happen?

If you haven't already read it, 'Candide' by Voltaire is a classic work that satirizes the optimistic philosophy that suggests we live in the 'best of all possible worlds.'
'All is for the best, in the best of all possible worlds.'
It is a great read indeed.
