Bridge to Terabithia. A tail that pulls at the heart strings. It embodies the blessing of friendship with the hardship of loss. one cannot have one without inevitably having the other.

Confederacy of dunces. A dryly written but hilarious story unveiling the wild web of one man's existence.

A hitch hiker's guide to the Galaxy. Just a stellar book…pun intended.

Astrophysics for people in a hurry. The complexities of the universe are written in
an entertaining and understandable manner.

PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMIPANS!!! I have learnt so much from that series and I am absolutely in love with it. The portrayal of characters are insanely well and the plot, as crazy as it is, is illustrated so good that I feel myself going into the challenges the characters are facing. I highly recommend this series.

A Piece of Cake by Cupcake Brown changed my life because it was an example of a person who had been given a deeply unfair hand in life but played it to the best of her ability and used the hardships to propel her into something amazing

I have always been an avid reader, but I remember every Christmas my great aunt in America used to send me a package of Nancy Drew books. I will read anything just about, but really enjoy historical romances, crime and investigation and a good romance.

This is a great question! When I was younger, "The Secret Garden" and "A Little Princess" by Frances Hodgson Burnett set fire to my imagination. The original Nancy Drew books made me curious and courageous. And as a teen, I discovered the books of Grace Livingston Hill (particularly "Marcia Schuyler," "The Substitute Guest," and "Crimson Roses"), whose strong characters gave me life goals, and whose beautiful, powerful writing showed me what storytelling could be. All these books are part of the reason I'm a writer today.
As an adult, I find continual help and inspiration in Norman Vincent Peale's "The Power of Positive Thinking." Peale has changed the way I think, for the better. Others that have helped me craft a successful mindset are "Who Dares Wins" by Bob Mayer and "Beyond the Summit" by Todd Skinner.
And most of all, the Bible has changed my life. Without it, and without authors like Hill and Peale to help me understand it, I would not have the joy in the face of struggles that I do today. This makes me want to go read now! 🙂

the first book that came to mint was “jeremy fink and the meaning of life.” I read it several years ago and it has really changed the way I perceive the world. I would 100% recommend this book for anyone who wishes to be enlightened.

The Self-Discipline Blueprint by Patrik Edblad. Short, simple and super useful. The hedgehog concept has really helped me figure out where I would like to go next in life. Such a good read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
