  1. “The Defining Decade” by Meg Jay

The author presents a great perspective about how your 20s are crucial to a successful, happy life. It is about making the most of your 20s in order to establish the life you want in the future. It is very influential in the decisions that I make today! – Delia

  1. “Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness” by Susannah Cahalan

  1. “What Alice Forgot,” “The Husband’s Secret” and “Big Little Lies” by Liane Moriarty

This memoir follows two new college grads as they set out to travel around the globe, starting in the People’s Republic of China.

  1. The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For?” by Rick Warren

I’m at that time in my life where I want to know my purpose; what was I created for. You read a chapter a day for 40 days, which is perfect for my busy schedule. – Claire

  1. “The Man Who Was Thursday” by G.K. Chesterton

If you like Sherlock Holmes, you’ll enjoy this turn of the century detective adventure. It’s packed with symbolism, allegory and cultural commentary, and written by an author who inspired C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Neil Gaiman and many more. – Maria
