Obviously I don’t know which books have changed your life, but I know mine. It’s about time I start doing more book related posts and I might as well reflect on my life while I’m at it. Besides I am who I am today largely because of books.
By no means is this an exhaustive list or else we’d be here forever. Also why would anyone want to be on my blog for that long?
This intro sounded much better in my head.
Below are a few of many books that have changed my life…for the better, of course.
The Maze Runner (series) by James Dashner
Diversity and representation. Enough said. Dashner did a WICKED job with everything else as well if you know what I mean.
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
It was a recommendation from a teacher. I think I was in grade five. Ten-year-old me loved it. I’d love to reread it in my retirement. The book did something to me. I can’t explain it. Sorry not sorry.
The Giver by Lois Lowry
I had to read this for school, but that didn’t ruin my enjoyment of the book whatsoever. Another story I would reread. I’m starting to think most of the books on this list are in my reread list. I didn’t realize I even had a list until now. Thanks goes to my subconscious mind.
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
The. Ending. Though.
Carrie by Stephen King
King is in a category of his own. So is Carrie.
House Rules/Nineteen Minutes/The Pact by Jodi Picoult
All her books are incredible and worth reading, but these ones, in particular, hit me the hardest. They’ll continue to stay with me.
Don’t lie to me. I know books have changed your life as well.
