Developing a Good Reading Habit: 5 Interesting Books to Read For Beginners

Interesting books to read for beginners

Everyone admires readers. But not everyone finds reading enjoyable.

Habits, they say, are best formed at an early stage. But not all of us develop our reading habits right from childhood. And as adults, we are often faced with the problem of where to start from because of the amount of available books. 

One thing is to desire to become a reader, another thing is to be ready to take the step, while the most important thing is to know how and where to start from. 

There are a lot of great books out there for starters. But putting them all out might just be as overwhelming as not knowing where to start from. 

So, here, I have gathered five of the best to help you start a love affair with books and nurture it as time goes by.

5 interesting books to read for beginners

#1. KITE RUNNER, by Khaled Hosseini

I became what I am today at the age of twelve, on a frigid overcast day in the winter of 1975.

The Kite Runner is an unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s servant, caught in the tragic sweep of history. 

The Kite Runner encompasses the hardship suffered by people, families during the Soviet and the Taliban's occupations of Afghanistan. It is a story of endless love, betrayal, hope, and all diminutive things you can relate with in a normal life setting.

Since its publication in 2003, Kite Runner has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic of contemporary literature, touching millions of readers, and launching the career of one of America's most treasured writers.

#2. THE ALCHEMIST, by Paulo Coelho

When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it.

The Alchemist is a fable about chasing one’s dreams. And in telling the tale, Pauol Coelho delves into magic, religion and the ancient practice of alchemy. He takes the reader on an adventure; the kind that takes you out of your skin and dump you somewhere in the Arabian Desert, or the beautiful city of Andalusia.

This masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. 

The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.

#3. A WALK TO REMEMBER, by Nicholas Sparks

A high school rebel and a minister's daughter find strength in each other in this star-crossed tale of "young but everlasting love" (Chicago Sun-Times).

For the record, this was the book that ignited my love for books. You may download your free copy here.


To think that someone who has experienced - firsthand - the brutalities of war wrote a book as interesting as this is quite unbelievable. Completely amazing! Roald Dahl's knack for story telling can simply not be overemphasized.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a 1964 children's novel. The story features the adventures of young Charlie Bucket inside the chocolate factory of eccentric chocolatier, Willy Wonka.
