>>12764694here are some books for your reading levelTurtles All the Way Down by John GreenThe Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman AlexieEleanor & Park by Rainbow RowellThe Hate U Give by Angie ThomasI know you'll think I'm just shitposting and yes that's a part of it, but if you REALLY haven't read ANYTHING in YEARS you should not be starting with the fucking Greeks and philosophy textbooks you fucking moron. YA fiction is designed to be easy and fast to read. You can finish a 300 page YA book in a day if you want to because the writing is usually so sparse and heavily dialogue based.
>>12768623actually kinda based, anon. I'll go with Eleanor & Park.
