books that will change your perspective

I love books - real books; the ones you can smell and touch and hold and turn the pages of. I can't remember a time when I haven't been genuinely excited about receiving one or two or twelve books for my birthday - to me, books and stories are the perfect gift.

But stories and fiction are more than mere recreation - through fiction, we can discuss controversy, compare worlds, challenge boundaries and imagine a life completely different to the one we inhabit.

Through creating a parallel world within our minds, stories can transform us entirely.
Below is just a small list of books that, for me, have made me think differently, act consciously and question normality.

I cannot recommend these books enough - you will change and grow for the better.

  1. The Book Thief 
  2. It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be
  3. The Sky is Everywhere
  4. The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Nighttime
  5. Never Let Me Go
  6. 13 Reasons Why
  7. The Power of One
  8. The Perks of Being A Wallflower
  9. Outliers
  10. The Boy in The Striped Pajamas 
  11. The Murderer's Daughters
  12. Eleanor & Park
  13. We Were Liars
  14. The Lovely Bones
  15. The Little Prince
