Hello, wonderlandiansbooks. I’m very excited to be part of this event. This post is probably one at taking me you the most time to write. because I really had to think about the books that I’ve read over the years and which ones I really do think could change your life.
I can say with confidence that there are three books that I have a read that have changed my life and I hope they can do some good for you guys as well.
I’m going to start off with my very pick is a fiction book. If you have been following my blog for the last year and you’ll know that one of my is called Vampire Acadmey. It is written by Richelle Mead. Vampire Academy changed my life in this was the very 1st book that put female friendships above romanctic ones.
The 2nd book I chose to is by Lily Collins And this is a book about her life. Ita Lily Collins : Unfiltered no shame, no rregrets, just me. This book changed my life because I was able to read about somebody else’s experience says and really come to terms with who I am as a human being. It teach me that I shouldn’t live my life with shame and regret. There are things that have happened in my life that I can’t take back these were just experiences and lessons that I had to learn to get me to where I needed to be and live.
My 3rd and final book is by Lilly Singh How to be a Bawse. This once again was about her life. It really taught me that I need to go after the things I want to in life. I shouldn’t be afraid that I am going to fail. There is a very good chance that the thing that I set out to do could fail but I should not be living with that fear because I once again will be living with the regret that I never went after one of my dreams. It’s a book that teaches you that happiness and fulfilling your life should be 1 of your number 1 priority years. Not only your life but how can you also help others. It teaches you how to be the boss of your own life.

It’s amazing how one book can change your perspective on life. One of the things I love most about reading is how a book allows you to see the world from a different point of view, and helps you discover more about yourself (sometimes in ways you’d never have considered). There are plenty of non fiction books that have been life changers for me, but also fiction works.
The book I want to focus on for this answer though is The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. This is a book I read when I was young that has stayed with me over the years and I still consider a book that everyone should read at least once in their lifetime. It taught me about the world (the good and the bad), and made me grateful for how lucky I am to have been born into the life I have. It taught me; about history, to hold on to the good times, love people, help people, appreciate the small things, to never stop dreaming… it taught me so many life lessons I could go on for ages. I think the biggest lesson it taught me was that it can all change in a moment. I was at school when I read it for the first time and I’ve carried that lesson with me ever since. I try to live life like it could all change in a moment. What I took away from this book definitely helped shape the person I’ve become.

How can a book change your life? A book can touch you, through the years and across distance, by describing a feeling or emotion you identify with. Perhaps, you thought you were the only one feeling that way. When that happens, it’s magic.
A recent read that changed my life was ‘Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine’ by Gail Honeyman. Our main character is a hard-working woman in an office job, who shirks social niceties and speaks to her mother on the telephone once a week. She eats the same thing for dinner every Friday and buys the same bottle of vodka before a weekend spent at home.
This book spoke to me about what could be going on beneath the surface, when you see someone who doesn’t quite fit in. But, most of all, it is about the loneliness and disconnect we feel in today’s world. It is a book that makes you want to be a better person. I want to be someone who befriends people who may be lonely, someone who looks behind the mask and doesn’t judge. Someone who could help an Eleanor Oliphant.
