Hi,

I'm currently trying to get into the habit of reading for various purposes. The last time I read a book was back in secondary school! After then I just couldn't get into the habit, I would start a book and never finish it.

What I'm looking to do is to start with an easy read, that is, something that isn't too long, tedious and mind boggling. I'm quite open in terms of genre, which unfortunately makes it difficult for me to pick a book out, although at some point I do want to pick up a mathematics related book. I've looked around and decided that my first read will be 'To kill a mockingbird', hopefully that'll go well but after that I have no clue as to what book I should read next.

So what books could you recommend me that are brilliant and easy to read?

If there's anything I can do to narrow down the search please ask!

Thanks!

The Stranger by Albert Camus, very easy to follow and it's quite short too.

Sherlock holmes are all short stories and very gripping.
Catcher in the Rye is quite short too and a fantastic read!

Douglas Adams, 'A Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy' or George Orwell's 'Animal Farm'. Neither are too long, nor too tedious.

Catcher in the Rye was great
I'd also recommend Animal Farm, I am legend and then possibly 1984

Some lighter teen stuff though that you can just read through really easily such as Hunger Games, the Divergent Trilogy
How about seeing the latest tv series such as reading A Song of Ice and Fire (The books Game of Thrones is based on).

I may have to revisit Catcher in the Rye very soon! Infact might order it off amazon now.

Ender's Game and its sequel, Preacher for the Dead are both effortlessly compelling, profoundly moving and thoroughly accessible in equal measure.

The Hunger Games trilogy, the Divergent trilogy, any John Green books are all easy to read. The A Song of Ice and Fire series is also brilliant but is pretty long. The Harry Potter series is also good

depends what your idea of an easy read is, i personally wouldn't call classic literature like Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre "easy reads" but maybe you do

Gemma Collins autobiography 'Basically'. It's like reading a children's book, cementing to anyone who reads it, that she is in fact, as thick as ****.
