How To Lift Out Of The Confusion Of 2020

This is a post that’s been on my heart for a while now. I knew I wanted to say something, but I didn’t know what to say. It’s no secret that 2020 has been a global sh!tshow.

59 Books Everyone Should Read in Their Early 20s

12 books everyone should read in their twenties.  Book list for millennials. Reading lists in your twenties can be hard to find. Check out these books. Literature. Book Nerd. Book worm.

I always get asked what the best books to read in your early 20s are, or even just what are the books every millennial should read… but the truth is there are so many books we all need in our lives. We need fiction books inspired by true stories or real life events that let us into the heart and soul or allow us to reimagine worlds we think we knew. We need non fiction books to offer us tips, advice, and experiences that can only be shared by an inspirational messenger who lived it and practices what they preach. Some books may be better suited for females and other for males and others for non-identifying. But the reality is, there are so many good books out there, and while this is a long list of some of the best books to read before 30, it’s not the only list. This is a (hopefully) balanced reading list for how to survive your 20s with books on career, finance, overcoming adversity and tragedy, life hacks, new perspectives, helping the planet and more.
