I’m going to talk about the books that made me a better person. Books have that funny way of connecting with you, hitting that chord that just resonates. How many books have you just GOT and knew that it had affected you profoundly and knew you wouldn’t just be able to forget. If the answer is yes then strap in, I’m about to take you through the books did that did just that for me.
Thinking In Pictures by Temple Grandin
As a mother to a child with Autism this book was perfect. It gave significant insight into an individual with autism but also talking about the challenges and truimphs she has acomplished during her life. It is a beautiful read and it had moved me to tears.
Stay Mad, Sweetheart by Heleen Kist
wow, wow wow. This is a book that needs to be read by woman and men alike. It’s an extremely relevant and important novel in the times of the #metoo movement. This is a novel that would make anyone a better person.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Well if anyone knows me well, they know I’m not about to start burning books. The context of burning wisdom (books) means that freedom is gone too. They’d know nothing and they would just be existing day to day in relative ignorance. A scary portrayal of a world gone wrong.
1984 by George Orwell
One of the scariest reads I think I have ever read. It melts your brain with the constant what ifs. This book blew my mind…the scariest part is is that our society could quite easily become like this. We are edging towards an uncaring and violent uprising.
A Game Of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
JUST BECAUSE…How can this series not make you a better person.
