Hello guys, I am back with another blog on one of my favorite thing ‘Books’. This time apart from reviews, I will answer a question that is asked to me the most! Which is ‘Which book I should read to start my journey of reading books’?

Well, I have made a list of 8 books that will help you get started based on my personal experiences. These books have easy language plus suitable length to become a perfect first book for youth.


Chetan Bhagat Always Works

My first book was 2 States by Chetan Bhagat. I highly recommend Chetan’s book to kickstart your reading habit. The reasons are its highly relatable youth stories and easy vocabulary. Here are some of his books which I recommend;

Five Point Someone: A book on college campus life, love, friendship and heartbreak can be a good book to start. It is gripping and a typical masala book.

One Night At Call Centre: Again a book on youth, life at the call center and everything that happens in love. Every book that Chetan has written is different but they are youth-centric.

The Girl In Room 105: A book that broke my personal stereotype on Chetan Bhagat, thriller, suspense, love and everything that other Chetan bhagat books don’t have.

The Leader Who Had No Title By Robin Sharma: Now if you are one of those who particularly don’t want to start with a romantic book, this is for you! This book is a must-read on leadership, business, and relationships. Robin Sharma is very relatable to youth here and also easy on reading.

I have also done a review on this book, check out the review before you give it a read.

The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari: Another classic, Motivational and Enlightening book by Robin Sharma. It’s gripping, relatable to youth in a corporate world or any job. It is a must-read, irrespective of you read this first or not!

Till The Last Breath: An author who I personally like after Chetan Bhagat for love stories is Durjoy Dutta. A typical love story with a very gripping storytelling tone. Young guys and girls who like love stories will not have any problem gulping this sweet story on one go.

The Palace Of Illusions: If you don’t like romance or motivational books, don’t you worry, I have this book for you. Mahabharat, the epic of Indian history told in perspective of Draupadi.

This book caught my eye on the previous line, as I am a huge Mahabharat fan and that too on Draupadi’s perspective was an interesting plot. Chitra Banarjee is flawless in this book and is one of the must-reads on my list.

How To Analyze People On Sight: If you don’t find any of the above books interesting, then directly start reading this book. Because this is for you. A book which is logical, realistic and intuitive. I am still benefiting from this book and it is an easy read too.

Check out my review on this book by Elsie Lincoln Benedict and Ralph Paine Benedict.


This was it, I have tried my best here to list 8 books which are worthy to kickstart your reading habit. I have made this list in a way that you will read another book after reading these books and that is for sure.
