5 Books To Read While In Quarantine

Since everyone is going stuck in their homes for a while, here are some book recommendations that might help you stop the boringness of quarantine. 


  • The Hunger Game Series


Although the Hunger Games movies and book series both finished a few years ago, it is the perfect time for a throwback. Especially since all the movies are now on Netflix. The story is set in Panem, a futuristic version of the US that after a war it is now divided into 12 very poor districts and one wealthy capitol. Because of the rebellion coming from the districts toward the capitol, the Hunger Games were started. Each year each district must provide one male and one female tribute to fight each other till death for the capitols’ citizens’ entertainment.



  • Stargirl


This novel tells the life of Leo, a high schooler whose only mission is to not stand up, meets Stargirl, a girl that is the complete opposite. This inspiring story explores topics like nonconformity, the cruel fight for popularity and the excitement of the first love. This is a great moment to read the book, not only because it is very good, but also the movie adaptation came out a few weeks ago on Disney+ starring Grace VanderWaal.


3.Crazy Rich Asians

If you are looking for something more light-hearted and even a bit cliche, then this book is for you. The story revolves around an NYU teacher who’s boyfriend takes to Singapur to meet his parents. Little did she knew that his family was around the top ten most wealthy in China. The couple now has to face the traditional ways of the boyfriend’s family and the way they think about his girlfriend. Even though the storyline has been used before, this book takes aspects from the wealthy Chinese culture to take it to the next level, and with a very emotional ending, I’m sure this book will become a modern era classic. There is also a movie that was nominated for several awards based on the book.


  1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I have to warn you, this one’s a bit denser than the previous books, but a great one nonetheless. The book is about Charlie, an introverted freshman in high school and him making his transition to adulthood while trying to answer the questions his family and friends impose on him. The story touches on delicate topics such as drug use and mental illnesses. It also was adapted into a movie with an all-star cast including Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, and Logan Lerman. The adaptation was very well received by the fans of the book and critics.


  1. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

This series of books inspired the Netflix hit movies with the same names. The story is about how Lara Jean wrote secret letters to her crushes but the letters were never meant to see the light of day. Somehow the letters end up in the hands of who they were written for. Now Lara Jean has to explain what is going on to all of them. To make things more interesting, one of the letter receivers was her sister’s boyfriend so now she has to fake a relationship with Peter, so her sister won’t think she has feelings for him. But, will this fake relationship end up as something more?
