    The Prisoner of Zenda. Nine Princes in Amber. Both super masculine. And, if you want insight into women, The Mists of Avalon.

    "The Pursuit of Happiness" by Douglas Kennedy. I read it in late 2018, and I would say it is more for a woman to read, but it is great nevertheless.

    Last year I started reading "The Snowman" by Jo Nesbo and it was brilliant.

    I wasn't aware that books were confined to certain age groups. I know that books are written about various age groups, but I thought anyone  could read them who wanted to. I still read children books and I'm a senior.

      Many children's books have a certain "magic" that you find as much in "mature" novels.

    An etiquette book. A personal finance book. A home-repair and a car-repair guide. A cookbook for beginners (and one for "One or two")

    Worth reading for young women too.

    Don't be confined to reading those books. They are the books I should have read at age 20. (I did read the current Emily Post's Etiquette)
