Reading is one of my favorite most relaxing things I do, and if I can share the joy of certain books with other people, I can achieve making the world a little better than it already was. I am including a list of some different genre books, but these are works that everyone should read at some point in their lives.
1. How to Be a Best Friend Forever – John Townsend
This book is exactly what the title says, a guide to how to be a best friend. The book includes the importance of having a best friend and how friends are essential to life. The author includes a handful of tips on how to develop and maintain BFF relationships. I read this book and it was so spot on that I even implemented it into my life, and it worked extremely well, I became closer with the friend that I practiced the advice on, and after I had a sit down with her, we both came out more confident with where we stood on our relationship. (5 stars)
2. A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickens
Truly a classic. The length and the vernacular might deter you, but don’t let it. The story is amazing. I truly love it, it is my top choice of classic literature. I don’t want to give away too much from the plot, but be prepared for love, drama, action, and plot twists. Take your time with this book and really read it and envelope yourself in the story. It is well worth it.
3. The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
This is a hot book right now, just recently turned in to a movie. The hype about this book is properly deserved, the tory is amazing. This is a relatively short book, so it is definitely worth the read for the time that you will spend reading it. Even if you have already seen the movie, you should go out an invest in the book, it is truly an experience.
4. Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
I am actually only in the process of reading this right now, but so far I really like it. The format is narrated by the husband of Amy, and the alternating chapters are diary entries by Amy. It is definitely a good mystery and dramatic read. I can’t wait to finish it.
5. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns) – Mindy Kaling
This is purely for a good laugh, and I haven’t read it yet but I think I will really enjoy it. I have hear high praise for the book. Mindy Kaling is iconic and I can’t wait to read it, so I can let you know how it is.
