20 Books To Read in Your Twenties

Leave a comment

I was reading an article recently and I came across this interesting list of books to read when you are in your twenties. Since  I am in my early twenties, I have more than enough time to read all of these way before I hit my 30s. What’s really interesting is that the majority of these books I have never even heard of! Granted,  there are so many books that come out on a monthly basis, it is impossible to read them all. (even if all you did was spent all your time reading, eating and sleeping, you still wouldn’t be able to catch up. Sad but true ). For those of you that are interested here’s the list:

  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
  • A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift
  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie


    • Shake Hands with the Devil by Romeo Dallaire
    • A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
    • Amrita by Banana Yoshimoto
    • All My Friends Are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman
    • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
    • The Road by Corman McCarthy
    • The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway
    • Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed
    • The Vagina Monologues by
    • Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
    • The Night Circus byErin Morgenstern
    • Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
    • The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (I’ve seen the movie but haven’t read the book yet)
    • The Trouble with Islam Today by Ishad Manji
    • In the Woods by Tana French
    • Wool by Hugh Howey




How many of these have you read? Surprisingly, I haven’t read any of these.
