I have read quite a handful of books, but not an extensive amount of books as most people who have been book blogging or bookstagramming. Just enough books to know which ones to recommend and which ones I do not.
Today is the day I’m going to list books that I believe everyone should read.
Reasons To Live by Matt Haig
In general I think that this is a good book to read, it’s quite insightful and there’s a section in the book where you can see contributions of individuals as to what their Reasons To Live is.
To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
I am not recommending this solely becuase it is considered a classic, but I am recommending this on its principle. The book, in my opinion can be seen as a depiction of segregation and discrimination that many individuals still experience in today’s society. No matter how we preach that it is the 21st century and that everything has changed – it I uncanny how books written 50 or so years ago still very much apply to put society now.
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Much like To Kill a Mocking Bird this novella is a microcosm of today’s society and not just what society was like in the 1930s – because there’s still discrimination and marginalization amongst certain groups within our society that are depicted in the novella. It’s a book that everyone should read, because everyone should be aware of what’s around them.
Very Good Lives by J.K. Rowling
A very inspiring speech made by the author J.K. Rowling about failure and how it is not the end of the road when you fail – that it is something that we should be taking as another challenge to get to what we want to achieve. Overall just something to read when you are feeling low or down on your luck because it inspires you to take you fate in your own hands.
