Books To Read While in Quarantine


Quarantine can be so boring but if you have run out of shows to watch,

places to hide, people to talk to, then turn to a good book. There is nothing

that a good book can't fix. Between you and me reading for fun is cliche and

ordinary, I read for adventure, love, and enlightenment. If you read as many

books as I have, then your mind becomes a library. So here are some books to

take you away from the comfort of your home. 

Quarantine Book List

  1. Narnia

This book is also known as The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is the second book of the

chronicles. It’s a fantasy book but it does have ties of historical and biblical context. If you are as

desperate as the children in the book in seeking a means out of escaping your reality then a wardrobe

that teleports you to a magical kingdom that has long rooted evils and talking animals might be the

place for you.

  1. The Golden Compass

This book is apart of a series[But I’ve only read the #1 book]. It is a fantasy tale that connects to the

ways of scholastic England and the Latin churches’ role of power overstate. The book takes Human

and pet relationships to the next level. In this world human souls exist outside their bodies in a “spirit

animal” form called daemons; Daemons can talk and change forms when you are a child, but puberty

makes them settle to a permanent form. The is a suppressive government will stop at nothing at

gaining control of their citizens' minds, body, and souls. If you are up for a grand imagination and

adventure of a pet being spiritually attached to you, then this book is for you.

 ~ Philip Pullman

  1. A Wrinkle in Time

|Between you and me I didn’t like this book, but I am still glad I read it for myself| 

It's a fantasy and science fiction book that is all about rooting for the underdog. A family that is

distraught because they can figure out any questions besides where their father is. As times got dark

for the family the children met unexpected guardians that figuratively and physically enlighten their

way to finding their father and their full potential. If you like the external battle between light and

darkness and the internal battle between good and evil then don’t waste another second, starting a

  1. A Brave New World

I can not call this book fictional because it might just be our future. Based in the UK, in a world

where technology and ‘happiness’ are the society's objective and as much as it seems like a Utopia

and liberation, it is the complete opposite. The government has too much control, but no one notices

they’re suppression because they are joyriding the pleasures of sex, drugs, and no pain. But is having

complete happiness worth it?

 ~ Aldous Huxley

  1. Lord of the Flies

Forget about the kiddy version of Peter Pan and the lost boys, because this book gets grim. These lost

boys were whisked to a deserted island by a crash-landing, leaving them stranded and in-charge of

themselves; You can imagine how much havoc is raised when boys are left in charge. In case you had

ever wondered what it would be like to be in charge of kids your age with no adult supervision, then

this book might sum-up the outcome. 

 ~ William Golding

  1. The Alchemist

Though this book is about another person it will end with you {if that makes sense? You will go

along this young man’s journey as a shepherd and experience pieces of his life. His life’s tribulations

and dialogue might seem completely irrelevant to you but in fact, it teaches you all great lessons of

life. If you are ready to become more mature and have wisdom beyond your years then this book is

for you.

 ~ Paulo Coelho

  1. The Secret Garden

When there are no more places to go then the garden becomes your new home. It’s a non-fiction

book but it is still whimsical. As an orphaned girl has to live with her uncle, she is forced to live in

solitude and she experiences the depths of greater loneliness then solely being an orphan. But she

seeks for a new connection though they are all behind locked doors and shut-lips. As depressing and

lonely as quarantine gets there are still relationships waiting to be made.

 ~ Frances Hodgson Burnett

  1. Oliver Twist

If you’ve ever been desperately hungry and would do anything for food, then the characters in this

book might resonate with you. Based in England, when practically everyone was struggling to make

ends-meet; There were no guarantees or consistency and in anything, so people turned to a life of

crime. In tough times as the food becomes scarce so does the trust and loyalty. 

 ~ Charles Dickens

  1. The Inferno of Dante

This book is the first epic poem of the Divine Comedy series; It illustrates descriptively what Hell

looks like, and this tale is the most popular and has been for centuries as churches still use it to

describe Hell. If you’ve ever thought to yourself that you were living in your Hell, then this book can

be your comparison. There you will journey into the crevices of Hell and meet the most interesting

souls and demons, are you ready to see what it looks like? 

 ~ Dante Alighieri

  1.  The Iliad + The Odyssey

If you are into greek mythology, insane adventure, love stories, and fighting then here are the books

for you. {I’ve read both, but you don’t have too. 

  1. In this book a father and king of the island have been missing for decades, his family and citizens are

still waiting for his return. But others think that it’s enough time for grieving and that they should carry
on with their lives. But the dad has been trying to make his way back to them for years, he has lost all
his closest friends on the journey; But met the most mystical creatures and craziest people. Is the
journey a punishment or reformation?
b. This book lets you be a part of the gods and goddesses' involvement in mortals' lives; The mortals think
it's destiny, but the god’s think it's a game. It is set during the Trojan War between two kingdoms that
can not get enough of feuding with each other. 

 ~ Homer

This book list is some of my favorite books because I’ve gotten to experience

all those character’s lives alongside them. For people that are tired of their

life stuck inside, then why not try someone else’s? I hope people enjoy them

as much as I did.
