What we recommend: The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

What it’s about:  This book’s full title is The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, and it follows the path of Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit from the Shire, as he journeys with a company of dwarves to reclaim their lost home, the Lonely Mountain. This book dives into the incredible worth of Middle Earth and is full of adventure, strife, victories, humor, and friendship.

Why we recommend it:  While The Hobbit is certainly not a new book, it is a classic fantasy perfect for those who wish for a bit of adventure without having to stray from their own home. Tolkien is a master writer and brings the story and Middle Earth to life with beautiful descriptions and details.
