Reading is a great way to wind down. However, finding good books to read is a challenge. Scrolling through books takes a lot of time and effort. People tend to judge the book based on its first chapter. Yet, the first chapter doesn’t contain much plot action. It is mainly introductory. So this is my list of books to read.
1. The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
A heart-wrenching novel about Starr stuck in the middle of two very different worlds while combating police brutality and racial injustice in society after an event that she will never forget.
2. Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell
