The books that will move you, inspire you, make you cry, make you think, make you laugh. Even if you read them in high school or college, you'll have a different perspective on them now that you're Out In The World. Trust me. Weirdly relatable, even though the characters are all pretty much upper-class pseudo-intellectuals. The best time to read The Secret History is probably while you're still in college, because it is about a secret society at a small liberal arts college gone horribly awry, but it is also worth picking up a few years later to be reminded about the intensity of college friendships, and also Ancient Greek.

Best of all, they discuss all of this while being completely judgment-free. In this book, Duckworth writes about the power of passion and perseverance over talent. Reading this book will remind you — or prove to you — that committing to your passion is so much more important than having innate talent.
