I’m Getting Old

I was just scrolling through another of those lists of books I should read before I’m 30, and I realized something. I’m fast approaching 30! Oh boy. Am I ready for this?

But really, I started thinking about which books I actually think would be beneficial to read before the big 3-0.

To Kill a Mockingbird

The Hunger Games

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

The Diary of a Young Girl

I won’t sit here and pretend that these four books have everything a young person needs to know to live a fulfilling life, but I believe there is so much to be learned from these four works. The topics addressed in these books are different from one another and important for any generation.

Which books would you recommend to your not-quite-30-years-old-self?
