Yes, I am one of those people who loves books. Ever since my Junior year in high school, I haven’t been able to read as often as I would like to and that has pushed me to think about what books I do spend time reading. Many of my favorite books were written out of a personal experience and meant to encourage the reader. Most often I learn more from an author who teaches by sharing their own experiences rather than educating people by sharing their knowledge.
The books on this list may not be what you’d expect to find in a book list for teens. They come from greatly varying categories and they don’t fit nicely into one mold. I chose these specific books for two groups of people: those who can’t get enough of reading and need more ideas on what to read, and those who don’t ever know where to start in their reading and so they end up never starting. I greatly recommend these books for many ages, young adults and adults.
I hope you give at least one of these a try and let me know what you thought of it and if you learned anything from the author’s story!
