I love using books as a way to de-stress because if you are interested enough in them, they whisk you away to some other world. So here are my top 5 books that I like to read when I need to de-stress and I hope they open up some options for any of you!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – Fangirl is about a girl named Cath who goes to her first year of college with her more outgoing twin sister, Wren. The only thing is, is that Cath is having a harder time adjusting until she meets her roommate and her friend, Levi. I absolutely love this book and it is one of the most fun and cute books I own. This is definitely one of the first books I go to if I need to just take a break.
Twilight by Stephanie Meyers – If you didn’t know, although how could you not, Twilight is about Bella who just moved to a small town called Forks to live with her dad. But she gets more than she bargained with when she falls in love with Edward, a vampire. This book is just incredibly easy to get sucked into and overall it is a fun book to read.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – Of course I had to add this series somewhere on here because it is my favourite series. City of Bones is about Clary, a girl who just had her mother kidnapped and is now trying to figure out who she really is. Plus this series is so compelling and enjoyable and I think everyone needs to read it. I mean, it can be stressful at times but this is the stress you want…
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan – This book is about 12 year old Percy Jackson who discovers that he is a demigod which means he is half human and half Greek god. He is taken to a safe haven for demigods called Camp Half Blood only to be told that he is being accused of stealing Zeus’s master bolt. Now he has to go on a quest along with 2 other friends to find the real thief. This series is just so fun and easy to read and the world is so easy to get caught up in. READ IT!!!
Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout – Obsidian is about a girl named Katy who moves next to 2 twin aliens, Dee and Damon Black and is immediately thrown into their crazy world. I can read this book in literally one sitting just because its so entertaining and gripping. I can easily get whisked away from reality while reading Jennifer L Armentrout’s books.
And those are all my recommendations for books that you can use to de-stress! Since my school is starting in a matter of days I know that I’m going to be using a few of these pretty soon. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this blog post and don’t forget to check out my last one: How To: Be a Better Writer!
