Top 5 Fiction Books To Be Released On May 2024

People's ability to comprehend and respond cognitively to other people and social circumstances is slightly enhanced by fiction. It seems that reading a good story, by itself, increase our ability to empathize with others. We must intentionally remove ourselves from our own lives and immerse ourselves in the narrative both cognitively and emotionally and somehow, reading can assist us in doing that.
