If you hadn’t guessed by now, I’m an avid reader. I love nothing more than to fill up my library queue with 7 or 8 books at a time and then plow through them night after night. (Case in point.) I even love “live tweeting” what I’m reading and often share what has lovingly been dubbed as literary tweets.
When I think back on the books that have left an indelible mark on my life, there were 9 books that came to mind. Each of them were game changers for me; coming into my life at the exact right moment in time. Some created utter and complete paradigm shifts in the way I viewed and understood the world, others were the pep-talk from a girlfriend that I didn’t know I even needed, while others still have become the touchstone for how I operate in this world.
They are what keep me coming back time and again to the written world of books and libraries. And they are also what keeps me searching for that next story or study that will crack me open and teach me something new about myself and the world.
So, here are the 9 books on my must-read list that have changed my life for the better. Listed here in alphabetical order because HOW COULD I CHOOSE WHICH ONE I LOVE MOST?!
