George Orwell paints a picture of a terrifying future world. 1984 is often seen as a warning about our society and seems to grow more prescient every year. Even if you’ve read this one before, it’s worth another visit.
Alice in Wonderland has been a pop culture staple for decades. The true meaning and intent of Alice’s adventures are still being debated today. Take a trip to Wonderland with Carroll’s book and decide for yourself.
A beloved classic for both children and adults, E.B. White’s book tells the touching story of companionship between a pig and a spider. It sounds like a weird premise, but it delivers.
Another book based around a dystopian future, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 touches on the dangers of restricting free thought. Reading Bradbury’s work, you’ll be glad for the book that is in your hands.
‘Gone Girl’ is a chilling thriller that was just recently adapted into a movie starring Ben Affleck. The book itself is gripping and would be the perfect complement to a hot chocolate and a warm blanket.
If you’re not already a fan of Harry Potter, now is the time to start. Pick up ‘The Sorcerer’s Stone’ and be transported away to a world of wizards. Don’t worry: after you’re done, there are several more books to go.
Heart-wrenching, but brilliant. ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ is another book that was recently adapted into a movie starring Shailene Woodley. John Green’s work is a cause for reflection and contemplation about life and love.
A towering giant in American literature, Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ has won a Pulitzer Prize and is a cherished novel. If you haven’t read it yet, this winter is the perfect opportunity to pop on those designer reading glasses and see what the acclaim is all about.
Undoubtedly, you’ve heard of the smash hit ‘The Hunger Games.’ You may have even seen all the movies starring Jennifer Lawrence and others. But, if you haven’t read Suzanne Collins’ novels, do yourself a favor and start now.
J.R.R. Tolkien is another literary giant and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ is another American institution. Even if you’ve seen the movies, go on a literary journey through Tolkien’s incredible writing.
Don’t let your designer reading glasses go it alone. Pick up one or several of the above titles at a store or library near you and hunker down for the winter.
