I only started loving reading in high school but since then, my genre of interest has changed.
Currently, I’ve mostly been reading when I travel so a lot of the books are books that can be read with breaks in between and it doesn’t ruin the books, if you know what I mean.
I tried to write a very mini summary on some of the books!
AOTD: Buy a book from the bookstore (not an e-book) and read it!
- The Tipping Point
I read this book about 5 or 6 years ago and I was very skeptical because my teacher at the time described it as “a collection of essays” and to me at the time, didn’t sound appealing at all. However, I loved it. It’s a collection of stories, or you can see it as short chapters. An eclectic collection. This book was what got me interested in Malcolm Gladwell’s books.
It’s another Malcolm Gladwell book. I love that his style is a mix of a range of short stories. This book is all about how to take in the world around us.
- All The Bright Places
This is more of a story than Malcolm Gladwell’s books. This isn’t a light hearted happy read, it’s more of an emotional story about mental health. Books about mental health and institutions because they’re all very intriguing and I love to learn more about what goes on people’s minds.
- Milk and Honey
This.is.a.wonderful.read. I highly recommend. It’s emotional and happy and sweet and sentimental. Rupi Kaur is a fantastic writer and I’m so glad I stumbled upon this book. It’s a collection of her poems.
- The Wisdom of Psychopaths
The title might seem bizarre but it’s all about how more thoughtful and careful certain people are.
- In Cold Blood
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
(fyi: There are a lot of different covers for this book)
This is another one of the books I thought I wouldn’t like but I ended up being sucked into the 1984 black hole.
- Cat’s Cradle
This is honestly one of my favourite books and I’m thinking of reading it again. It’s a creative way to tell a futuristic story.
