Books for the beginners: A beginners guide to read

Now that I have talked about the importance of the books and how you can start reading, I think it will not be fair if I won’t suggest books for the beginners. So today I am going to suggest some books for the beginners.

  1. Persepolis: The story of childhood– Written by Marjane Satrapi, this book is a memoir. It is a story of a young girl growing up in Iran during the time of Islamic revolution. You will get to visit the time of war and that too from a child’s perspective. A young girl who wanted love and humanity in her country but gets to see violence and blood there.

This book with 492 pages is a perfect read for the beginners. Oh! Did I say 492 and beginners together? Don’t worry, I haven’t lost my mind, because this book is a graphic novel and you will not only get to read but also look at beautiful cartoon images in the book. So isn’t it a win-win situation?

  1. Looking For Alaska– Miles Halter, a teenage boy is fed up with his predictable and boring life, so he decides to go to a boarding school in Alabama. There he made three friends, Colonel (Chip Martin), Takumi and Alaska Young. And from there, his life becomes unpredictable and definitely less boring. Their pranks, mischiefs, drinking and smoking in school and avoiding the Dean, it was all fun until one day. The day when Alaska met an accident. What happens after that? Do you really think I will tell you? 😉

Persepolis: The Story of Childhood

This John Green book has all that which a beginner would want to read, teenagers, friends, their pranks, camping, outings, love and a little bit of mystery. But all in all I would say this book is refreshing, it will take you back to the time when you were a teenager (and if you are a teenager, then you don’t have to go somewhere, stay wherever you are and read this book), when there was adventure in little things like bunking classes and drinking for the first time. This 221 pages book is worth reading for all the beginners.

  1. The Kite Runner– Amir lives with his father in Kabul. With them, lives their servant Ali and his son Hassan. Both the boys, Amir and Hassan shares a good bond. They both love spending time with each other. They also share their fondness for flying kites. In Kabul they have a kite-flying tournament, Amir has always dreamt of winning this tournament, and he even wins that with Hassan’s help. But the day which they thought will always be cherished with great memories became one of the worst days of their lives. Incidences after this day lead Ali and Hassan to leave the house. This was the same year when war came to Afghanistan. Amir and his father decided to leave Afghanistan and settle in California. But destiny has some other plans, it brought Amir back in Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, where he will finally be able to forgive himself for a mistake which he did as a child.

This book is full of emotions- love, friendship, hatred, guilt, jealousy, terror, and forgiveness. Khaled Hosseini has written this book so beautifully that you will fell in love with Kabul. This book is 372 pages long, but this emotional ride will not let you leave it in between.

  1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone– You have watched the movie? Great! Because now is the time to start reading the book. We all have loved Harry Potter movies, reading the book will make you fell for this fantasy world even more. This J.K Rowling book has thrill, emotions, fantasy, magic and always this urge to know the changes which the directors made in the movies. So if you are looking forward to reading a book as a beginner I think there is nothing better than Harry Potter series.
  2. Gone Girl– You want to read a mystery and thriller book? Then ‘Gone Girl’ can be a perfect book. This book is about Nick Dunne and his wife Amy. On their 5th marriage anniversary, Amy went missing. As their marriage was not on a good note, everyone suspects Nick behind her missing. What happens after this is full of mystery and thrill.

This book has unexpected twists and turns and is perfect for those who say that they leave books in between because mystery in this book won’t let you leave it in between. You can read my full review here.

  1. And then there were none– This book comes with a disclaimer. The disclaimer being that the language in this book is not at all easy, so if you can surpass this then definitely go for this book. This Agatha Christie book is one of her bests. Ten strangers are called on an isolated island and are killed one by one. Before the weekend is out, there will be none on the island. Who is the killer? Why are these strangers killed? These questions will let you keep going on until the end. This book is really difficult to leave in between. So definitely a good book for beginners.

And that’s it, these are the 6 books which I think are best for beginners. I hope this will help you in choosing your book. I will see you in the next post till then- Happy Reading. 🙂
