5 Fiction and Non-Fictions Books You Should Read

 

This post may contain affiliate links through which I earn a commission from qualifying purchases. Read my full disclaimer here.

 

As an avid reader, I occasionally go off the grid and binge on serious non-fiction books (e.g., finance, history, artificial intelligence). Although I prefer fiction – and I often need a respite from reading serious work-related material – a good dose of non-fiction clears my head, provides multiple views of reality, and opens my mind to the current and future state of the world.

That said, I have some book recommendations for you – 1 fiction, 4 non-fiction.

If you’re in a book rut, or you’re wondering what to read next, check out the booklist below.

I have read each book, and each one offers something different. The topic, the author’s writing style, or the book’s applicability to my life drew me in. Each has its own appeal.

Below each book, I include a description to give you an idea of what to expect. The books are listed in no particular order.

Peruse the list. Then feel free to try a new topic or new genre. If you really want to challenge yourself, go on a book reading binge.

Happy reading!
