According to We Are Teachers, reading reduces stress and anxiety by 68%.

The written world

As of late, the act of reading has become less patronizing and many people have begun to enjoy the activity they once resented. 

Being a high schooler is difficult, but many have found that by seeking out a good book and adding it to their routine, everyday life is a little less boring. By switching up genres or even just beginning their first book since summer reading, teenagers can have something to look forward to at the end of a busy day.

Whether you have been a book lover your whole life or you are just beginning to surpass the initial stages of disgust, it is still very difficult to find a book that you not only like but also one that keeps you engaged throughout the whole story. Instead of just wandering the isles of the library or buying whatever is popular on social media, try out some of the recommendations from your LHS peers and the LHS English department. From history and romance to something a little more adolescent, hopefully, one of these books will hook you in and transport you to a world, unlike anything you have read before.
