5 Books you can read during Tier 4 lockdown

Here are a few of my favorite books that I recommend to all my friends 🙂

  1. Looking for Alaska by John Green 

This book is in my opinion the best one by John Green. It accurately represents teen love at its best and worst. It does not shy away from subjects such as drug abuse and harassment. Definitely worth your time as it is also a quick read.

My rating: 9.5/10

2. Emma by Jane Austen 

I had to read this one for a paper I had to write in my senior year of high school. Not such a quick read but at least it is available to read online for free. It is very interesting to see how women were pressured to act in 19thcentury England, and the way Austen finds a way to make feminism an important part of the story. 

My rating: 8.5/10 

3. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood 

I really enjoyed reading this book because it forces you to get out of your comfort zone. It is not a typical story, but rather a tale of a dystopian US that made me question the power we have given to authority. 

My rating: 9.5/20

4. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

I read this book at age 16 and it really helped me understand that relationships came in all races and sizes. It is not a typical teenage love story but not in the same way “The fault in our stars” is not a typical teen story. Its quirky in its own way and it will definitely be worth your time. 

My rating: 9/10

5. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury 

Another book based on a dystopian society, F451 is a classic. It is a really interesting story about friendship, censorship and technology that will keep you hooked until the end. 

My rating: 8.5/10

Happy reading!
