Now I know that every book lover has at least one book they read in their lifetime that completely and utterly alters their world. Below is a list of some of my world-shattering books. Maybe this will persuade you to read books you’ve never thought of reading before!
Harry Potter taught me and a vast majority of the world that life can be awesome if you have love in your heart and have people who make you smile no matter what. Harry Potter is a series that literally makes the world feel like it’s shifted on its axis. I don’t even know what my life would be like without it. To be honest, I most likely would not even be writing on this blog right now. That’s how colossal Harry Potter is!
The Help is first of all a great book to read because of what it teaches readers about the civil rights movement and stuff. It’s a life changing book for me because I identify so much with Skeeter. We are literally so alike in interests and personality. I think for a lot of people, The Help won’t be life changing at all, and they’re reading this thinking “What is this girl talking about?!?” Well, my friend, I’m not saying that The Help is necessarily a book that changes lives. A book with a character you can identify with changes lives!!!
The Great Gatsby
No wonder Mr. Fitzgerald gave his novel the name it has for The Great Gatsby is in fact great! I would even stretch to say it’s grand! Not only does this wonderful tale portray that the past is the past and should stay in the past; it also is a beautifully told story with a beautiful setting, characters, and everything!!! Jeez louise, The Great Gatsby will change anyones life who reads it, I guarantee it! (Just kidding, I can’t guarantee it but it’s like an 80% chance!)
I’ll Give You the Sun
This magnificent daisy of a book is essentially a huge part of who I am. The main message of this book is probably to be yourself and not put on a mask. Every single day, that is probably my biggest goal. So I guess you could say that I’ll Give You the Sun taught me a huge point in life. I’m sure it will do the same for you! Books are awesome, but this might be the best of the best!
To Kill a Mockingbird
Oh my, do I even have to say anything about this book to trump all books. I would love to know how many lives To Kill a Mockingbird has influenced. All I know is that it has influenced mine. It is my humble opinion that everyone should read To Kill a Mockingbird. I mean, I would say what lessons it teaches and whatnot, but what lessons doesn’t it teach? Ugh, it makes me so sad that some people have yet to read To Kill a Mockingbird. If you happen to be one of those people then what are you doing?!? Go to your local library, a bookstore, a stack of neglected books, do something!!! Go read To Kill a Mockingbird! P.S. Sorry, that was probably really aggressive! Don’t do anything you don’t want to 🙂
Well, I guess that’s it! I hope I didn’t scare you away with my excessive rambling. Maybe I gave you some inspiration for some books you want to read next! Or maybe you completely disagree with me. Either way, please let me know your thoughts! I’m super curious as to what other books are life changing! Thanks a ton for diving into my brain and reading my thought!
