Novels to read at every point of your life
Will you consider a novel your best friend? If, No read this blog. It might change your whole perspective!
Reading books is considered to be a very boring and tiresome hobby because of how we are treated with books in our schools and other educational institutions. But unlike our academic books, novels are more understandable, interesting, and absorbing. Not to say that our academics are boring or not interesting by any means, but we hardly ever study them in order to learn something. But from novels, we always do take away ideas, thoughts, lessons, that in one way or another, help us carve our personality from a careless and indifferent person to a more mature and emotionally diverse one. Fictional books are an easy recommendation to get someone started on their reading habit because they are interesting and encloses amazing stories that grab and keep grabbing the readers’ attention.
Reading fiction, it turns out, is a great way to develop your social brain. Research shows that reading novels, for example, shapes our brains and molds our social skills. A study by Keith Oatley and Raymond Mar found that reading fiction improves your ability to connect with others. The study demonstrated that people who read fiction perform better on tests of empathy. This result held up even when they controlled for the variable that empathetic people might naturally choose to read fiction. The study found that the more fiction a person reads, the stronger the ability to make mental models of others.
It's almost a cliche at this point to say that teen fiction isn't just for teens anymore. Just last year, the Association of American Publishers ranked Children's/Young Adult books as the single fastest-growing publishing category. Summer, like youth, is fleeting. But the books we read when we're young can stay with us for a lifetime. Here's hoping that when the school bell rings in a few short weeks, we'll go back feeling empowered and happy. Novels for Young Adult is one major genre. The Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and Hunger Games series are some of the books I enjoyed during my summer vacays. But, this season itself has been like a long vacay. Sci-Fi books let our imagination beyond the existing world.

Dr. Kay Scarpetta, now freelancing with the National Forensic Academy in Florida, takes charge of a case that stretches from steamy Florida to snowbound Boston; one that at first appears as unnerving as any she has ever faced. The teasing psychological clues lead Scarpetta and her team—Pete Marino, Benton Wesley, and Lucy Farinelli—to suspect that they are hunting someone with a cunning and malevolent mind whose secrets have kept them in the shadows, until now.

Books categorized under romance are not delivering the crucial-to-the-romance-genre happy-ever-after (HEA) or happy-for-now (HFN). Sometimes it comes off as “non-traditional romance” this ingenuity not only shows the reality but also makes it okay to feel whichever way you feel. When a tween, who is already unsure of what to feel and insecure reads these books it gives them hope that they don't have to go with traditional feelings and life is not always chippy and colorful. Books like these have made me feel like I am not the only one out there feeling this way and made me comfortable in my own skin and head.
