I have seen a lot of people talking about their top ten books that have influenced them in their life and I definitely find those so interesting! Here are my top ten most influential books in my life:
Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling – When I first read this series, I didn’t really like the first book, but I really fell in love with the series after this.
The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau – This book really got me hooked on dystopians and kept me thinking through the entire series.
The Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene – Also known as Nancy Drew. I spent around a year of my life reading only Nancy Drew novels, but the original series is my favorite.
Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer by John Grisham – I read this book as child, but it put my levels up higher and really defined what I liked in a ‘smart’ book.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Actually this entire series. It brought me to the realm of the fandom internet and put me on a very interesting journey. I love this story and its truth.
The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud – This book is a bit of a nerd problem, but it really got me interested in psychology, which would end up impacting a large portion of my life.
1984 by George Orwell – I love this entire story and how it relates to real life. Seriously, it creeps me out how intense this book is!
Bunheads by Sophie Flack – I quit dance because of an injury and I never really got over that until I read this book. It really showed me how dance can impact your life without being obsessed in this dance world.
Night by Elie Wiesel – This book is just really important and incredibly powerful. It really showed me about the Holocaust and respecting people.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher – The first book that really made me cry. It’s just so important to my life and how it turned out, just once again, showing me how to treat other people.
Those are my top ten most influential books! What are some of yours?
