We all have that book or books that have impacted our lives in a way we won’t ever forget. It may have made you aware of something you weren’t before or just opened your eyes to the type of books you love to read. Here are a few that have done this too me and I hope you enjoy!
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan – This was the first thicker novel that I read and it completely changed who I was as a person when I was younger. I wasn’t a huge reader until the age of 10 and once I read this book it made me love to read. I watched the movie for the first time and fell in love with the characters, the plot and the fun action of it. For years I wouldn’t read anything but this series and now it has opened my eyes up to so many new books that I love! I really owe my entire love for reading to Rick Riordan and Percy Jackson.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – I believe I read this book 3 years ago and again, after the first few chapters I absolutely fell in love! I sat on the couch for an entire week and just binge read this series non stop. There is nothing negative I can say about this series just because I adore it that much. No, it is not perfect but it came to me in a point of my life when I needed something like this to entertain me. I can still read this series multiple times without getting bored, that’s how much it means to me!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – This impacted me in a way different than the first 2 books. This book just simply made me fall in love with the contemporary genre and also introduced me to some amazing characters. I think contemporary is a fantastic genre and most of the time, it is something we can all relate to in some way. This showed me that I am not alone when I have an awkward encounter at school and I think that is really important to realize.
Those are 3 books have really impacted my life and shaped me to be the person and reader I am today! Make sure to comment any books that have impacted your life because I would love to know 🙂
