A month out of undergrad, I finally found the time to start reading again. Whether you need a new book to read while you sip on that iced latte or a book for your next flight, check out 10 of my favorite books:
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald // If you haven’t read the book, head to the bookstore and pick up a COPY NOW. While the recent film adaption is grand, nothing can compare to the original book.
The Scarlett Letter by Nathaniel Hawthrone // Like Marfa, Texas. Hard to describe but once you read it, you get it.
Beloved by Toni Morrison // Just wow. I normally don’t re-read books, but I read this one two times, back to back.
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler // Written after Handler finished his beloved series, “The Series of Unfortunate Events.” This illustrated work is purely captivating. Be prepared to shed a tear, or a hundred.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson // Just bad-ass and awesome.
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi // One relevant read, you won’t ever forget. Satrapi’s work is powerful, raw, and provoking.
Fates & Furies by Lauren Groff // READ THIS BOOK. Poetic, dark, yet simply wonderful.
Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham // You won’t stop laughing and you’ll read it so fast you’ll come back to this list to find your next book.
