In the world of never-ending media constantly surrounding us, whether it be on social media, television or the news cycle, sometimes it’s good to get away from a screen for a little while and get back to something a little more physical. Reading can be a great way to inform your mind, humor and life experience while getting away from the maelstrom of the digital sphere. When you read, it allows you to focus more on a singular idea or piece of information, rather than the article after article mindset that can, over time, be overwhelming.

With all that being said, GRAZIA has compiled a list of books from all genres that we think are worth reading. Whether it be humor, a coming of age tale or something more thrilling, we hope that these titles help you to unwind from the world around you, even if just for a moment.
