Amy, Angelina and, Ari's 'National Read a Book Day' Recommendations!
With all the time we’re spending at home these days, there’s no better time to sink your teeth into a good book! Here are some recommendations from Virgin hosts Amy, Angelina, and Ari.
Amy’s Book List:
Before the Fall by Noah Hawley
This book has been passed around to EVERYONE in my bubble. It’s a thriller about a plane crash that keeps you wondering what really happened before the fall. LOVE a good thriller.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck by Mark Manson
Forgive me, I know this is a basic bro book. But there’s a reason things are basic-THEY’RE GOOD. One of my former bosses recommend I read this book and it’s the only book I’ve highlighted passages in.
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
2020 has been incredibly heavy and for me, reading is an escape. I read this book AGES ago but would recommend it to anyone looking to escape reality for a while. Also The Hobbit>LOTR. Don’t @ me.
Angelina's Book List:
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
This classic book is filled with life lessons!
The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak.
This book is beautifully written. It’s all about the power of love! A story about Shams and Rumi plus lessons of what it means to love unconditionally.
A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
This book killed me! Filled with haunting characters that you really, really want to succeed. Not for the faint of heart.
Ari’s Book List:
To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
Aside from being a classic, this is also a very timely read because it explores issues around racial inequality.
A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
If you're looking for something thought provoking, look no further. You will finish this one with new ideas about the power of individuality and the danger of dystopia.
1984 by George Orwell
The book was written in 1949, even though you'll think it was written last week.
These timeless books are worth sinking your teeth into! Happy reading!
