“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss,
Books that made you feel like you knew the characters, like you were riding dragons or finally understanding the underlying truth of the universe, the one that made you experience the character’s journey almost like they did, the one you did not want to finish but were dying to 1/ know the end 2/ know if a sequel was already in the works.
If I can only list them all, I would surely do it! BUT, I cannot! So I will select just ten books that transported me.
This book introduced me to reading and transported me to the thrilling world of crime novels. I read this for a book report when I was in high school. 🙂
This book made me a dreamer, again. I was at my life’s lowest point when I read this book and yes, it is surely a book that will move you.
This book transported me to the world of grief and introduced me to romance genre and to my fave romance writer, Nicholas Sparks.
This book introduced me to YA dystopia genre and transported me to the Hunger Games arena in a fictional nation called Panem! I think I finished this series in less than a week? 😀
This book introduced me to my most loved favorite author, Mitch Albom, and transported me to ‘heaven’. From then on, I’ve been a fan.
This book introduced me to Philippine literature. It is the first local novel that I’ve read and it showed me how romance and humor work well together. 🙂
This book introduced me to a well-known tech pillar, Steve Jobs. This biography transported me to the beginning of his life until his last days. It’s actually a great read. 🙂
This book introduced me to the dark side of marriage and transported me to the clever yet criminal mind of Amy. It is insanely good read!
This book introduced me to one of my fave YA writers, Rainbow Rowell. Reading this innocent and imperfect high school love story transported me to my good-old-days! It actually reminded me of my first love! 😀 ❤
It took me so long to finish this book but it is well worth the effort as this book introduced me to one of the best crime/mystery authors, Stephen King. Transporting me back to 11/22/1963, this fictional novel with a bit of magic/mystery is surely a nice way to learn American history.
