3 Books That Have Changed My Life

I adore books, it’s part of the job description of a librarian, but every once in a while I come across a book that jumps out and stays with me forever. The following are 3 books that have changed my life, these are books that have made an impact on me and I constantly turn to (and probably own more than one copy of).

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

There isn’t much to say about this book except holy roller coaster of emotions! This book makes you feel every feeling known to mankind. I have read this book numerous times and alway manage to finish it in one day. While reading I will laugh and cry (I look crazy, but oh well it is worth it). Now it might sound weird to enjoy an emotional roller coaster but sometimes you need it. I turn to this book when I’m in a funk and need to put life into perspective, it’s the perfect book to get out all of your crazy emotions.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

I’m a die hard Alice in Wonderland fan, not just the books but also movies, TV shows, mini-series and whatever else I can get my hands on (like coffee mugs, pictures, shirts, etc). I may even have a tattoo of Alice and a quote from the book… This book has changed my life as an adult and a child, as a child it gave me an escape into a bizarre world that I hoped really existed and as an adult it helps remind me of what it is like to be a child. I love reading this book or watching one of the many movies to bring back the magic of being a child (and sometimes an adult) in a world that doesn’t always make sense.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

The first time I read this book was in high school and it really touched me. I felt that the book spoke to me and to this day still does. I read this book whenever I’m feeling down or lost in life, it really helps me put things into perspective and get my priorities straightened out (are you sensing a theme here?). Reading this book is an amazing way to learn about yourself and life in general.

If you have never read one of these books I highly recommend you run to your local library and get a copy asap.

  1. I have just embarked upon a new literature challenge because I just didn’t read enough. So far, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley really had an impact on me but also, I love The Other Hand by Chris Cleave. Thanks for sharing.
