As a single, adventurous 20-something, I have found books to be the greatest companion and reading to be the best escape from my current reality: Job searching, Netflix and constantly attempting to navigate the balance of being a fun, carefree postgrad and a serious young professional.
I have found comfort in plopping myself down at a coffeeshop, opening a good book and escaping to an alternate universe where I can forget about my troubles and spend time acquainting myself with fictional characters.
When I find a book in which the words on the pages come to life, I know I’ve found a keeper.
Something about experiencing the characters’ ups and downs alongside them makes me feel connected, like I’m getting to go on their adventures with them.
In attempt to help my fellow Millennials add a little spice to their lives while expanding their minds, I put together a reading list of my 10 favorite reads from the past year.
These books will make you laugh, cry, smile and question. Click here to see Kara’s list>
