The 12 Books You Should Read To Get Back Into Reading

I used to read a lot, in fact, I used to read every day. But as I grew up and became busier, my reading began to diminish. I started reading boring books that were not engaging to me. Before I even realized it, I was not reading at all.

I didn’t want to stop reading, but it just kind of happened. If you can relate, worry no more, these are the 12 best books to get you back into reading.

Don’t feel like reading the article? Our buddies over at Invideo.io made it into a summarised video, check it out:

#1 Everything I Never Told You

I think Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng would be a top pick for getting people back into reading. It's an engrossing story with characters that almost anyone can relate to. Ng's engaging storytelling makes the novel a quick read as well, partly because it's hard to put down. The novel's themes--being an outsider, lack of communication, racism, and family dynamics--make the book appropriate for high school students as well as adults.

I'd also recommend her critically-acclaimed follow-up novel, Little Fires Everywhere.

Before there was a Quantified Self, there was self-awareness. If you want to get back into reading - or develop any other healthy or positive habit - this book combines in-depth research and sparkling storytelling to show you how to do it mindfully and deliberately.

#3 Down in the Belly of the Whale

Admittedly this book is a Young Adult novel, but as far as something to read that is fast paced and easy to get into, this is the one for readers, not to mention 55% of YA readers are adults anyway. If you're an adult reader interested in social issues, the story touches on topics pertinent to the #metoo movement, #mentalhealthawareness, and #chronicillness.

#5 The Shining

This book is a page-turner to the very end. I love what Kubrick did on camera but nothing will compare to King's original, terrifying novel. As one critic said at the time of its publication: you had better not read it alone.

#10 The Alchemist

This sci-fi novel is a great read primarily because it is really well written and much like an unfolding drama, it takes you on a journey. Readers can follow the character from one end to the next and in doing so can begin to unfold their imaginations. The worldwide bestseller follows Santiago's prophetic journey to the pyramids of Egypt.

#11 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Another fantastic modern classic, depicting Harry Potter's first magical journey. The later books are much darker but this one retains the joys of a boy discovering his enchanting wizardry. A short tale taking place in a world that we would all love to visit, at least for just one time.

#12 Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

This book will leave you "curiouser and curiouser," as Alice exclaims. While the novel does have some archaic vernacular, it makes up for it with its sheer oddities. It is a world so weird, unique and colorful that you'll want to come back to it time and again. Its sequel, Through the Looking Glass (And What Alice Found There), is also highly recommended.
