Weekends are always a great time to read! 

Everyone has definitely different tastes, but books are sometimes very powerful to jumble up your mind. Therefore, we believe that these books are some of loads that will make you think, contemplate the universe, appreciate yourself and other people around you and be grateful for what you have and where you are right now!

1. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

This is a story about breakdowns, rebellions and new experiences of a young woman during her adolescence. She has just finished college and discovered a whole new world by winning a one-month paid internship at a magazine in New York City. There, she and other college girls get showered by tons of presents. This is probably a suitable book for those who are still figuring out what their passion is, what they want to do in the future and many other untold things that are possible to be turned into anxiety issues.

2. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Having a husband who is diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder doesn’t stop the passionate love between two lovers. The story is told from both points of view. You’ll realize how hard they attempt to live just a normal life like any other families with children, jobs and friends. This is not about something they can control. So they just need to accept it and keep doing it for the sake of how their love is bonded.

3. The Diary Of A Young Girl by Anne Frank

A diary told from a young girl’s perspective on the second World War. The Franks family had to hide themselves away in order to not to be captured during the German occupation of Holland. This is unlike other historical readings, because Anne Frank was only a normal teen-girl who had a lot of thoughts in her mind like how annoying her parents were, her friends and some boy issues. You’ll also get a bit of understandings about the Nazis and the Jews during that era through this diary.

4. The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

An unusual graphic novel about how the author, as a smart young girl, went through her childhood and adolescence during the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Girls and guys were separated in schools, girls were told to start wearing veils, and so on. It was a world full of politics for such young age. All her struggles and efforts are somehow implied throughout the whole book. If the novel wasn’t in graphic, it wouldn’t be as interesting and comprehensive.

5. The Age of Grief by Jane Smiley

A book which is consisted of sharply written short stories about betrayed partners in marriage implies how important all small and unimportant details in daily life are, because they are actually the ones that make up a marriage; morning routine, dinner preparation, groceries shopping, and so on. And apparently, their kids might have listened and understood what has been going on with the parents. It is that feeling you get when you have to discover the bad truth.
