We’ve talked about the health benefits of reading in a previous blog post. Reading is a great way to relax after a long day. If you’re looking to escape into a new world, reading can help with that! If you haven’t picked up a book in a while, you might have trouble remembering what stories appeal to you. We’re here to help you with that! Here is a list of five books to check out.
If you like Greek mythology then you should definitely give The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller and Circe also written by Madeline Miller a try. Millers puts a new twist on Homer’s two classics The Iliad and The Odyssey. You think you know the story, but Miller manages to add feminists twists throughout her work. It’s so easy to get completely wrapped up in the world Miller creates.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid and Daisy Jones and the Six, another one of Taylor Jenkins Reids’s hits, have enraptured readers everywhere. Inspired by her time in Hollywood and her real life idols, Taylor Jenkins Reid writes about larger than life characters. We recognize Elizabeth Taylor in Evelyn and Stevie Nicks in Daisy; however, you don’t have to enjoy either’s works to enjoy these books!
If you’re looking for something more lighthearted, there are plenty of comedy books out there! Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling is the perfect read for anyone who just wants to laugh. She has the incredible gift of coming across as a friend.
