15 Books For Introverts That Will Totally Speak To Your Introverted Soul

Not all introverts are book-lovers, and not all book-lovers are introverts. There is, however, definitely some crossover.

As both a book-lover and an introvert myself, I’ve found that there are a ton of books that really speak to introverts. I’ve read the books for introverts on these list, and found myself totally identifying with the dialogue, or wishing I could tell the characters how much I agreed with what was going on inside their heads. (Except, you know, I wouldn’t do that, since I’m an introvert. But I’d TOTALLY THINK IT.)

 take a look at this list of 15 books all introverts should read.

1. TELL THE WOLVES I’M HOME BY CAROL RIFKA BRUNT

It’s 1987, and June Elbus has lost her best friend in the world, her uncle Finn. June is 14, and reserved in a way her sister, Greta, will never understand. They used to be so close, but now, the only comfort June can find is in the woods, where she is free to think and be alone without the painful eyes of other people on her. As June finds out more about her uncle, and comes to learn more about herself, her family, and the world itself. This perfectly quiet novel will make any shy or introverted person feel immediately understood.

2. READY PLAYER ONE BY ERNEST CLINE

It’s 2044, and the world is falling apart. Ernest Cline’s bestselling first novel tells the story of Wade Watts, a teenager who has almost completely removed himself from reality in order to pursue an “Easter Egg” within a video game to win a billion dollar prize. Wade, and the rest of the world, would rather communicate via virtual reality than actual reality, they feel more themselves tucked away, a feeling most introverts know all too well.

3. THE EMPATHY EXAMS BY LESLIE JAMISON

Leslie Jamison takes a look into the inner workings of people you might never have known about: runners of the most intense race around, people who believe they have tiny fibers inside them that they just have to get out. These people are misunderstood, they’re quiet, they’re introverts, they’re looking for a place in the world. You will feel empathy and so much more through Leslie Jamison’s exploration of the people slipping through the cracks.

4. FANGIRL BY RAINBOW ROWELL

Cath, the fangirl in question, is basically a professional fangirl. She writes fan fiction about her favorite series in the world: Simon Snow. She has thousands of follows waiting impatiently for her next installment, and a twin sister who seems to have grow out of their once shared obsession. When Cath and Wren get to college, they fall in with different crowds: Cath with quiet writers like herself, and Wren with a more outgoing group. Fangirls everywhere will connect with Cath and her struggle to join her fan-life with her “real life.”

5. WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE? BY MARIA SEMPLE

Bernadette might be the ultimate introvert in literature. She would rather disappear from her daughter’s life all together than take a trip to Antarctica, because other people will be there. While we’ve surely all felt this way at one time or another, Bernadette takes introversion and dislike of crowds to an entirely new, hilarious level.
