Okay, I confess, I am completely and forever book worm. You know, one of those kids that would get in trouble for reading in school. Still think it’s a bunch of BS BUUUT that is besides the point. If you don’t like reading, that just means you haven’t found a book you like yet. And if you haven’t found that book you are dying to read, I think you’re supposed to write one 😉 Here are some books that have changed my life, or the life of someone I know and love. Hope you enjoy!
all book covers were found on amazon.com
This book is so lovely. She gives plenty of practical information that you wouldn’t even think about until something happens to you. You’ll be years ahead of your peers in life skills and be laughing through the whole book
If there ever was a definition of f**kin legend, it’d be this guy. It may seem like you are forever destined to work a 9-5 in whatever your field of study is. Life really doesn’t have to be like that! This book is for figuring out your passions and how to live a life you’re ecstatic about. And who doesn’t want that?
A little bit of an eye-opener, a husband-wife team tell how women are still suffering in many parts of the world today. Don’t pass this up because of the heavy theme though, plenty of courageous and wonderful people appear throughout this non-fiction book.
Please don’t be intimidated by the title! This is not one of those books where they attack your personality or anything like that. But it does give you timeless tips on how to communicate with people which is KEY in every. single. relationship and human interaction you have.
Oye, this one will make you cry. Although it’s a fiction, it shows very real circumstances on how we humans effect each other without even realizing it. Not only is it extremely poetic, it’s short enough to read in a weekend (or day if you have the time).
Even if you aren’t a Tina Fey fan (shame on you), her book will give you plenty of hilarious and genuine advice from someone who has had her ups and downs. Especially good for anyone going through a quarter life crisis 🙂
Absolutely life changing! Ultimate crash course on the current food systems and how we are basically destroying the land while wasting an alarming amount of food.
” I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou
The world lost an extraordinary woman in 2014. I’d feel awful if I spoiled any of the novel, because it is timeless, so I’ll spare details. Her autobiography is one of the most empowering books I have ever read, and will help any woman realize her true potential.
My best friend read this book years ago and it opened her eyes to a world of possibilities. Today, she is traveling the world with no final destination and no intention of stopping. Who else would I have trusted to meet me in Singapore?
I know, she’s the cutest.
This book leads you into the art of long-term travel, which is affectionately referred to as “vagabonding”.
