It’s just the beginning of January 2018 and it has already been a tough new year. But, you know what I do when the monsters - of life and my head - make it tough and almost crippling to get out of bed? I read. Losing yourself in a book is the best way to learn at becoming a better version of yourself.
And while I’m not too big on resolutions, for those who are, these are all the books you should read this 2018 to become better persons than you were before. Because the learning curve never stops.
And so, here's 10 books every girl should be reading in the New Year 2018 for a "new you".
Peach by Emma Glass
Readers and award-winning authors are already describing this book as the onset of a visionary voice in debut novelist, Emma Glass. The story of a girl named Peach, the book is about violence and abuse that has been committed against the protagonist who, then, goes on to detail her life from that experience on, in a dark poetic manner. It will leave you tossing and turning at night with the realism with which this short book has been written. It will also affect you on a mental level in the sense that it will leave you scarred. The book may not be the best for someone with a mental health problem; but, it’s the best kind of literary fire for a feminist.
