Still, this is a foundational text for science and people that are trying to learn about the universe at large. Your loved ones will love the fact that you’re smart and well-read.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

It’s a child’s book but that can help you in two different ways. First, it shows your loved one that you have a lighthearted side that isn’t afraid to believe in magic. Moreover, it’s a way to show your partner that you are able to indulge in a children’s world, and that could make you stand out with long-term dating potential. Either way, the whole series is a worldwide phenomenon for a reason.

A People’s History of the United States

A People’s History of the United States takes a much more honest look at the things that made America the country it is today.

Your loved one will love knowing that you’re willing to read something that is controversial and outside the comfort zone of many grown adults.


Jane Austen’s Emma is mandatory reading for many college courses, especially those pertaining to feminism. If your loved one is a subscriber to feminist ideas, then reading this book is important. The story focuses on Emma as she tries to play matchmaker, but it also goes into a lot of depth about a society that is focused on keeping women in a specific place, and it’s not a good one. The book is definitely a little bit of a daydream with its ending, but it’s still a very good book.
