high school books

Are you looking for great books to read this year?  While I’m all for new books, there are so many great older books that we should re-read too!

If we’re honest, many of us didn’t exactly enjoy reading assigned books in high school. Maybe the stories weren’t relatable, the characters seemed boring or you just didn’t like reading under the pressure of time restraints. Whatever the reason, a lot of us just didn’t appreciate our high school reading.

The thing is, many of these books are fantastic! Now that you’re graced with the wisdom and experience of years lived, it’s time to crack open some of those books and give yourself a chance to enjoy these wonderful stories!

Most of these are less an $10 on Amazon but don’t forget, you don’t have to buy books. Head to the library (even if your local library isn’t open right now, many have a great e-book selection), search the thrift store, or even ask your favorite high schooler if they have copies on their shelves.
