Gone with the Wind.

On the Road by Jack Kerouac left a big impression.
everthing everthing <3
Lisa Wingate’s Before We Were Yours
I found Hemingway’s ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ strangely moving and it left me with an interest in all things Spanish and the inter-play of politics between left and right.
I think George Orwell’s Animal farm changed my views on politics it opened my eyes as well as William Golding’s Lord of the Flies
Shaunti Feldhan’s Veritas Conflict.
Then Dale Brown’s Warrior Class, where he introduced a President as a villain that actually made a LOT of sense to me. (Thomas Nathanial Thorn, for those familiar with the McLanahan series)
Bill Myers’ Eli was powerful, as was Ted Dekker’s Circle Series.
Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged more gave me words for things I had been feeling for years.
Diary of Anne Frank
I read this book named the case of exploding mangoes by mohammed hanif and yes that humour of the protagonist in those dark times of his life definitely changed my perception about the obstacles i faced in my life:)
@Terry 😀 He inspired my love of writing epic/high fantasy.
Terry Pratchett, RIP
I don’t know .. “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho perhaps !!
Exist west by Mohsin Hamid
Just 1? Each book adds to my outlook on life and/or personal outlook.
The Shack. First time reading a book of this nature and it was amazing. Definately changed some ways of thinking for me!

anything by Alan Watts
The Chosen by Chaim Potok
The Four Agreements
Some good recommendations. Will add these to TBR list.
A book I read in college, “La Vida”, about Puerto Rican life in the states.
K. Webster hands down… I have no more black and white, only grey areas…. <3
The Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery changed the way I view and live my life. Anne Shirley’s character is inspiring.
Holding up the universe and eleven minutes
Diamond in your pocket.
9 and Half Weeks…the clarity of pushing bounds and simply being pushed around.
too many…..but the one off the top of my head is Lessons From a Dead Girl
Have you ever read “Go ask Alice” during the 70’s ?
@Pedro No. I haven’t, but is it good ?
@Violet This book ? changed my life forever. I’d read it during the 70’s when I was 12 years old. On this time talk about Drugs was a TABOO between teenagers and adults. This book ? was about a 15 years old girl dairy that to about her own experience with Drugs and Dealers… It was a amazing journey to this girl named Alice.
I must confess the truth this book had changed my life forever about the world’s drugs.
Since I’d read it I’d never ever try or any kind of drugs during my entire life.
@Pedro That’s so nice. I want to go read it now!!! Ohh, by the way i’m only a high school student.
Chuck Palahniuk and Hunter S. Thompson… I’m beginning to question my life choices now.
When a caged bird sings
As girly as it may sound-Eat Pray Love and Elizabeth Gilbert saved my life, I wish I could tell her that.
Kidnapped hit me like a hammer at eight years old before that it was my beloved Eagle comic.
Kidnapped is like a fast paced movie, and Davy’s walk across the Highlands… well I still have that to do before moving on? I spent every Saturday morning in the local library from then on until the morning I went to see A Hard Day’s Night?… I did return to my library the following week.
