This year’s hell-bent to obliterate, or so it seems. We don’t have to look further from our shores: we had an eruption, a media outlet was threatened to be shut down, and now a pandemic — one that was totally brushed aside until it was too late. We’re now on lockdown, giving us more time to actually absorb the news, and the anger that comes with it. We’re growing more restless by the day.
But for an hour or two, we can turn to literature. In the midst of all the noise, we can find a breather within pages, inside worlds that can give us comfort in these trying times. We rounded up some book recommendations in hopes of… well, hope. May our book recos give the hope we’re in dire need of — and the spark you need to fight for another day.
