Top 10 Books That Have Stayed with Me in Some Way

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Last night, I received a notification on Facebook from a couple of my friends--myself being tagged on their statuses. I thought it would be contain a random musing or some inside joke. But I was surprised to see that it was "book-related." I'm so excited to answer it and for today's quick post, I will be sharing my list. Oh and since my work's focus is on social media, why not spread this short but beautiful way to share your literary favorites. Here we go!

I've been nominated by my friends, Ms. Yette and Frankie Torres of A Roaming Tsinay to list 10 books that have stayed with me in some way. Then I have to tag them and 10 people to do the same. Rules: Don't take more than a few minutes and do not think too hard. They do not have to be right and great works of literature. (But to turn it up a notch, maybe you can share a line or two on why these books stayed with you.)
1. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
This book taught me that it's okay to be different and to want other things, and that you don't have to conform to fit in. It also taught me to embrace my weirdness and that this actually makes me even more awesome!

Proof that pictures are worth a thousand words or a whole novel. Kidding aside, it showed me how strong the power of imagination is.

3. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
It made me appreciate how to have fun even at this age. It reminded me how to be young and how to be kid again.

We all have our inner princesses.

There are different kinds of pain we'll go through and every person has their own way of dealing with it. If you are in the process of healing, you don't have to rush it. You can take all the time in the world to make yourself whole again.

I grew up with this series. It opened my mind to a wider perspective and that there is more to it than a story about a boy and the wizarding world (I'm looking at you old, judgy, close-minded people who tried to stop us from reading this amazing series), and that you always have a choice. Thank you for making me believe in magic.

7. The 39 Clues
Do not underestimate the young ones, and of course, being smart is cool. Plus, facts and general knowledge is also fun and easy if you know how to find the clues. *wink wink*

8. Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
I love Greek/Roman mythology and this is a fun way to put it!

Information is vital in the digital age. You must know how to use and wield it, and don't forget that you should also know your intellectual property rights.

This book taught me that all your decisions in life have certain consequences. Choose wisely because once you've made a choice, you can never go back to change it.

Now for the blogs and friends I nominate:
Justin Torres of I am the Blue Devil
Abi Viesca of Looking For Leo
Marion Quitasol of Mics and Blueberries
Helen Oli of Wanderlen
Heather Holden of the
Hazel of Stay Bookish
Melissa & Kristy of Book Nerd Reviews

Can't wait to see your answers guys! Hope you enjoyed this challenge as much as I did! Let's make it viral!
