The Best Books To Read Right Now

As you probably know by now, I’ve been really into reading for fun this year. Since I do so much reading for school, this has taken a lot of intentional choices, like reading books that will keep my attention and listening to books on Audbile when I’m traveling. While there are a bunch of books that I’ve been rereading recently, I’m also always looking for exciting new ones. To do this, I turned to other bloggers to ask them what they think the best books are to read right now!

Looking for something to read? I asked several bloggers what they thought people should be reading and why, giving you a bunch of new book ideas!

The Cellar by Natasha Preston: “Not only does this book keep you on the edge of your seat, but it’s also a very quick read. It’s the perfect book to get you ready for some eerie fall books, but you can read it in enough time before the summer ends. Gotta love a good mystery!” – Bryanna of Coming in Clutch. You can also find her on Twitter and Instagram.

Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely by Lysa TerKeurst: “I had received a ton of recommendations to read this book and I was very excited. I mean just from the title, it is pretty easy to connect to. I can think of many times in my life where I have felt uninvited, unwanted, lonely, unworthy… you get the picture. There are instances in our lives that make us feel so insecure and I think it is important to know that you aren’t alone in this. We all feel these things and have these thoughts run through our minds that make us go… “Am I enough?” / “Do they want me?”. Uninvited lets you know that you aren’t alone. Reading this book really shed light onto some internal feelings and emotions that I needed to let go and work through, so if you are like me, I think this book is worth giving it a read!” – Kenzie from Her Time. You can also find her on Instagram.

The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (a collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories): “I think older writing such as this is impressive because it has “stood the test of time”. Doyle is an incredibly gifted writer and when I read it, I always feel like the story could be real and I love that feeling of total immersion in the story I am reading. Also, once I get started reading one of his stories it is impossible to stop!” – Elise of Adkins Domain. You can also find her on Instagram.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: I can’t say enough good things about this book. There’s a heist, magic, love, friendship, and more, which is basically all of my favorite things in one book. It’s the kind of book that I couldn’t put down! If you want to hear more about is, I talked about it here and here. – Me! As you hopefully know by now, you can also find me on Twitter and Instagram.

What do you think everyone should read right now?

    Just yesterday I finished reading Martin Eden Jack London. This book is becoming for me as a textbook. I’m not a writer, I create clothes for miniature dolls, but I try and learn to write about their craft.
