7 Books That Made Me Who I Am Today

In Book Lovers, Human Interest, Lists, Self-Help by Mavinia Allagu0 Comments

We all have a list of books we keep close to our hearts. The ones that have been sitting on your bookshelf since you were a little kid, followed you into your teen years and remain with you even now.

So, these are the 7 books that have, no doubt, made me who I am today. We might share the same ones!

 

1. A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

This masterpiece by Hosseini, is definitely a book I will recommend to anyone down the road. It is heart-gripping and beautiful and for those of you who are fond of history, this is a good piece that will leave you wanting more. You can also check out the book review I wrote on this novel a few weeks ago!

2. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma

I read many positive reviews on this book and at the time, I had just finished Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. Seeing as I had just finished a motivational self-help book, I figured I should check this one out. And I’m glad I did! Robin Sharma somehow made me a more motivated and optimistic person. This book might seem to be a normal old tale that teaches you about the essentials of life, though the contents of its pages are truly quite life-changing.

3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

No doubt, the highlight of our childhood! This was the first ever Harry Potter book I received as a gift on my 7th birthday from my awesome Mum and Dad. It was quite difficult to understand some of the words while reading a book like this at a young age, but eventually I finished it and boy was I happy!

4. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

I’m a love bird and a sucker for a good love story. But, hey! Who isn’t when you get your hands on one of Nicholas Sparks’ novels? I remember re-reading this book countless times. It is a beautiful love story and it has showed me how true love is capable of overcoming the test of time.

5. How Starbucks Saved My Life by Michael Gates Gill

The only reason why I have this book on my bookshelf is because the title somehow spoke to me when I was walking through the aisles in the bookstore. I was asking myself, ‘How on earth did Starbucks change this person’s life?’ So, yes it caught my attention and the content captivated me even more! A true story of riches to rags. Well, kind of.

6) Memories by Lang Leav

After reading this book, (which took a long time since I did not want to rush because it was so perfect), I became a poet myself in my own world, lost in my own thoughts. Leav’s writings entice you and keep your heart-chugged with each passing page.

7) All Marketers Are Liars by Seth Godin

I picked up this book because I was preparing for a marketing position in one of my university’s student clubs, so this book was exactly what I needed! It taught me valuable lessons on the best way to present and apply myself professionally.
