The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

By Mark Manson

How could we not include this one? The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is, according to some, one of the defining self-help books of the decade. With his sometimes snarky and always crass style, Mark Manson flips over societal ideas about positivity, anxiety, and hardship. Oh, and he’ll also tell you that contrary to what you’ve been told, you aren’t special. You’ll either hate this book or you’ll absolutely love it, but we say it’s worth giving a shot.

I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

I am Malala chronicles her journey, discussing her time at the school her father opened for girls and the tumultuous history of Pakistan. Yousfazai later became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate, at the age of 17. After reading her story, you’ll never again take your education for granted.
