Relatable Book Recomendations
It is not a mystery that people like various kinds of books, but what about books located in college? As a book lover, I love books that I can relate to. If others like the idea of relatable books like me, this is a list for you.
1. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
It has recently become an insult to call a book cheesy but that just means that the story is not for that person. Although cheesy books are not as deep as others, they can still be enjoyed by those who like them. When you need a mental break, it is the perfect time for this kind of story. Rowell’s Carry On is a funny parody-type story that is based on Harry Potter that can take up most of your free time if you let it. With magic, roommates, and even mystery, it could become your next favorite book. It has two more stories after if you become enjoy it enough.
2. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Fantasy is one of the most popular book genres nowadays and luckily there is one to read if you want to live in a fantasy college rather than this current one. Ninth House, although a dark-themed book, is perfect for anyone who loves magic and a mysterious college full of danger. The book can pull you in with the questions that come up and the romance that appears as well.
3. Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
Although it is not a book about a student, you can still relate to the research project which ends up leading to much more in the story. This paranormal book about supernatural characters like vampires and witches will make you lose track of the day if you like in-depth world-building, long-hidden mysteries, and a blooming romance.
4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The story might not be set in college like the others, but it does not lessen the feelings the book can give you. Centered on Charlie, who has struggled mentally for a while, finds new friends, and goes through many experiences that could easily be seen in college. A deep story that includes family drama, a few bad decisions, and even The Rocky Horror Picture Show at some point. The book is darker with themes of mature variety and is suggested for those with a desire for these kinds of stories.
