5 BOOKS THAT EVERY STUDENT SHOULD READ


The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien

This brilliant work of epic fantasy set the stage for Tolkien’s Middle-Earth, and introduces the reader to a whole collection of gallant heroes and dastardly villains.

Flowers for Algernon, by Daniel Keyes

The story of one man’s journey to triple his own intelligence, and in the process to learn of every sin etched in the psyche of humanity. By the end, the reader will feel the emotional depth of what it means to be truly smart.

To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee

Set during a racially and civilly divided time in the American South, this book will challenge the reader to look critically at how we as a society have tackled race relations.

The Bell Jar, by Sylvia Plath

The poet laid bare every ounce of courage in order to confess her mental anguish through fiction, and in the process made the reader question the American Dream for not only women but also those whose own minds prohibit them from being able to access that dream.

The Martian Chronicles, by Ray Bradbury

A sort of Winesburg, Ohio for science fiction fans, this collection of vignettes takes the reader across the stars and dares him or her to imagine in the broadest way possible.
