Just a few days ago someone quoted in Facebook, “Life of an introvert revolves around books, coffee, rains and a hoodie. Well, the post was supposed to be funny but honestly I couldn’t agree more as this is what my life looks like. I myself am an introvert and I know that we are more likely to fall in love with books and coffee than with people.
As an introvert, I find the best way to recharge myself is to read books. So to my kind of fellows, here is a list of books they can read to keep up the spirit—
Walden by Henry David Thoreau
Imagine your life inside a cabin that too in forest. Sounds interesting? Well, in the book “Walden” Henry David Thoreau talks about his experience living in a cabin inside the woods and falling in love with a much simpler life and being quite comfortable in the natural setting away from the society.
The Complete Poems by Emily Dickinson
A lot of Emily Dickinson’s poems reflect her own sentiments about people and her unwillingness to confront the outside world. “The Complete Poems” are a set of poems by Emily where she certainly could portray every introvert’s thoughts in her own way.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
The sweet and simple Jane Eyre always used to get lost in her own thoughts and feelings since childhood. She is one of the most relatable introverts who often used to be contempt with her own little world and literature rather than being tempted with any complicated human drama.
The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
The story of the novel actually explains the life of many other introverts. The story talks about characters who feel they should hide their true selves from the world and become someone else as they think that the real world will not accept who they really are. Well, this makes sense to a lot of people in world now.
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The story deals with two characters basically – an extrovert Ruth and Kathy, an introvert girl. Where the two of them contrasts each other completely, the character Kathy will be highly appreciated by the introverts as an observant; you might also feel Kathy to be a detached and passive narrator of the book.
The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
This novel deals with just another boy next door yet with a beautiful meaning. Oscar is an overweight Dominican boy who is hopelessly romantic and who believes in a magical realism. He’s a quirky and unlikely protagonist who loves to read science fiction and fantasy books, and is obsessed with what he believes to be a family curse.
Perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The story begins with a quiet, sensitive, 15-year-old boy named Charlie writing letters about his life to an unknown recipient. Charlie chooses that person because he said that he heard the person was nice and thought that this person would not be judgemental. Well, Charlie is brilliantly portrayed as an introverted, quiet, socially awkward and brilliant character by Chbosky.
