10 books you should read


Choose what to read next is very overwhelming for the avid bookworms. Even the situation in Hamlet looks like a piece of cake before choosing a new book to read. However, the books take you not only with their story, but also with their ideology.

That’s why there are books written which are best to read at a particular time of life. Although the list might be endless in the literary work, still we have narrowed down that list for you.

Here, we are with a list of 10 books that you should read before you turn 30:

1. To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee


“To Kill a Mockingbird is the first novel of such rare excellence that it will no doubt make a great many readers slow down to relish the more fully its simple distinction. It passes the test with honors. This is in no way a sociological novel. It underlines no cause. To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel of strong contemporary national significance.”- Chicago Sunday Tribune

2. Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward

“While the magical element is new in Ward’s fiction, her allusiveness, anchored in her interest in race politics, has always pointed in this direction. It takes a touch of the spiritual to speak across age, class and color.” – The New Yorker

3. Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

“It is easier to be bewitched by Haruki Murakami’s fiction than to figure out how he accomplishes the bewitchment. …The weird, stately urgency of Murakami’s novels comes from their preoccupation with such internal problems; you can imagine each as a drama acted out within a single psyche. In each, a self-lies in pieces and must be put back together; a life that is stalled must be kick-started and relaunched into the bruising but necessary process of change.” – The New York Times

4. Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace

“His latest offer, Infinite Jest, moved towards us like an ocean disturbance, pushing ever more hyperbolic rumors: that the author could not stop writing; that the publisher begged for hundreds of pages to be cut; that it was, qua novel, a very weird piece of business. – The Atlantic

5. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

“The book itself has grown here beyond its former last line, that uttered by Professor Pieixoto, lecturing in 2195 at a symposium on the now extinct Gilead: “Are there any questions?” There are! Members of his audience, a multi-voiced assemblage, would like to know everything from where the tapes were found to how safe they may consider themselves from another such tyrannical regime. The audiobook is further enhanced by a fine concluding essay by Valerie Martin read by Allyson Johnson. This highly pertinent, ingeniously conceived production deepens the original work and even surpasses it.” – The Washington Post

6. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling


“It is uncomfortable to reach the end of a saga that has reached such heights of cultural saturation; there is not enough action or bittersweet resolution in the world to prepare us for the end of this last turn of the page, and readers will always want one more chapter, one more story, before they leave the un” – The Horn Book

7. The Veins of the Ocean by Patricia Engel


“Engel has an eye for detail. She knows how to drown the reader in a sense of enchantment… She writes exquisite moments.”—Roxane Gay, The Nation.

8. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki


“Personal finance author and lecturer Robert T. Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective from two very different influences – his two fathers. One father (Robert’s real father) was a highly educated man but fiscally poor. The other father was the father of Robert’s best friend – that Dad was an eighth-grade drop-out who became a self-made multi-millionaire. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his poor dad pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his rich dad. Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at 47.” – Good Reads

9. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson


“At its core, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a book about finding what’s truly important to you and letting go of everything else. In the same way that he encourages limiting exposure to mindless distractions such as social media, television, and technology, he encourages limiting concern over things that have little to no meaning or value in your life.” – HuffPost

10. White Teeth by Zadie Smith


“White Teeth is one of the most talked about fictional debuts ever, a funny, generous, big- hearted novel, adorned by critics and readers alike. It deals with friendship, love, war, three cultures and three families over three generations, one brown mouse and the tricky way.” – Goodreads
