Books that Impacted Me

Today is my 28th birthday, and probably the 28th anniversary of my love of books. I’ve read hundreds of books across my life, from reading with my parents, learning to read in school, to setting up my own book blog (and subsequently a Book Tube channel) sharing some of my favourite titles.

While I have tonnes of favourite books for a plethora of different reasons, there are some that have stuck with me throughout my life. Isn’t it really coincidental that it’s the same amount as the number of years I’m turning?

Books I Barely Talk About

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

I love books a lot, but there are quite a few I don’t get the chance to shower with praise. Whether it’s because they don’t fit into any prompts, or I’ve not yet reviewed them, it’s time to give these books a little more love.

We don’t really have Thanksgiving in Ireland, which is a shame because the holiday contains many of the things I enjoy – friends, family, and food. A lot of food.

That’s not to say I can’t take on one of the fundamental things about this holiday, and give some praise to some books that made quite the impact on my life. These books have shaped me significantly, and they’re for sure books you should also pick up.
