Lockdown has been a critical time for everyone across the country. People are isolated and unable to continue with their normal lives. Perhaps unsurprisingly, with millions stuck at home, more people turned to reading as a way to cope with the situation and keep themselves occupied. Recent data from a wide variety of media and entertainment companies show a surge in people consuming more content online, including a big jump in online reading. Girl in White Cotton by Avni Doshi This much-talked book, shortlisted for the Booker Prize, really is worth the hype. It explores life in a cult and an unraveling mother-daughter relationship in a way that makes it difficult to put down. Lockdown on London Lane by Beth Reekles From the author of the famous Netflix movie The Kissing Booth, this Wattpad series follows a group of twenty-somethings through their week of quarantine, where romances will blossom, friendships fracture and relationships are forged that could last a lifetime. The Lying Lives of Adults by Elena Ferrante In a year of extremes, Ferrante’s latest novel is the much-needed escape for which you’ve been searching. The novel is written in rich prose, and you’ll soon be consumed by Ferrante’s world of turmoil and hostility. Human Untouched by Sydney Carvahall This Wattpad story follows the young but strong Terra as she experiences unparalleled pain at the hands of a tyrannical government. She eventually rebels, and what happens next is thrilling. This dystopian novel kept me reading late into the night.
