Some of us just don’t like to read. I can understand this in many ways as someone who is currently not reading much right now. However, reading and books have been a part of my life for many (many) years, and I expect them to continue to be. So, while in no way am I good at saying what you should read if you don’t like reading, here’s a few I’ll (loosely) put in this category of a few books to read if you don’t like reading.IF YOU DON’T LIKE READING, HERE'S 8 BOOKS TO GIVE A CHANCE. OR BOOKS TO (MAYBE) READ IF YOU DON'T LIKE READING. #READERS #READING #MUSTREAD #AMREADING #BOOKWORM #TOPTENTUESDAY Click To Tweet
What I decided to do is put books on this list that are about a bookworm, or just reading in general. The idea being that maybe by reading about a character or person who loves to read, you can see what reading and books mean through their eyes. It’s not something that will necessarily change anyone’s mind or inspire anyone to love reading, but it’s the theory I decided to go with. Let’s jump in, shall we?

1: NORTHANGER ABBEY, JANE AUSTEN
I started to read this one years ago, and as I remember, it’s fun. It follows an imaginative girl who has an active mind, fueled by her reading of novels. Of course, as it’s Austen, there’s a bit of romance too. Amazon | Goodreads
2: WONDERLAND CREEK, LYNN AUSTIN
I haven’t read this novel, but have heard it’s a good one about a bookworm who’s fiancé breaks her heart. This sends her to deliver books to a small mining town. Also, as a side note, I did read novels by Lynn Austin years ago. Amazon | Goodreads
3: THE UPSIDE OF FALLING, ALEX LIGHT
4: ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, L.M MONTGOMERY
Ok, honestly, I haven’t read the Anne of Green Gables books, but did grow up on a diet of the 80s adaptations. I feel like the books would be easy reads that present you with a HOST of characters easy to love and root on, which can be half the battle of reading (liking characters). Amazon | Goodreads
5: THE PRINTED LETTER BOOKSHOP, KATHERINE REAY
I haven’t read (!!) this one by Reay just yet, but I’m very much interested. Follows a woman who inherits a bookshop that once held fond memories for her, but she’s not a bit more jaded from life. Amazon | Goodreads
6: THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY, MARY ANN SHAFFER
7: JO & LAURIE, MARGARET STOHL AND MELISSA DE LA CRUZ
This book is one of those I “didn’t know I needed” kind of read. It follows Jo March in an alternate story where maybe – just maybe, she does actually deeply love Theodore Lawrence. Guys, this book is just… charming. Amazon | Goodreads
8: THE SECRET LIFE OF SARAH HOLLENBECK, BETHANY TURNER
