Share the book that impressed you or left a mark on you with us! :smartass:

In my case, that was Animal Farm by George Orwell. I read it when I was very young (about nine or ten years old) and I hated it so much exactly because it was so sad. To this day, I still cannot forget how I felt when I read it. :moon:

Charlotte's Web

It taught me about diversity and that no one should be judged on how they look and also that true friendship is one of the greatest joys in life :yep:

The fact its about animals really got me to as well. Y'all know me when it comes to animals

The only book that's changed my life (sounds so dramatic) is the MMK, and it's not for everybody because it's so bloody obscure. Nevertheless, it completely changed my outlook on the world.

Goodnight Mister Tom. I read it when I was 7 and I still remember telling everyone that would listen about it, and then reading it over and over until I got my hands on the film. Then reading it again.

Hellfire by John Saul was quite impactful. I remember admiring the vengeful nature of the ghosts and wanting friends like that. :devil:

Recently, though, A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness made me cry. I think we can all learn something from that book. I cried multiple times when reading it! I always cry at Patrick Ness, though.

Love, Light and Mermaid Tails: One Woman's Healing Journey Back to Wholeness Through Stage Four Cancer by Fi Munro

I read this book a few months ago and it was absolutely amazing. The writer is such a strong woman who is surviving with a smile on her face. Inspirational.

Animal Farm by George Orwel
When I saw the title for this thread, even before I opened it, I immediately thought of Animal Farm. Timeless Classic!

It's Kind of a Funny Story is my favourite book of all time, I reread it as soon as I finished it the first time! It's the most honest book I've ever read about mental illness, it really stuck a chord with me. I especially like the fact Craig has an average upbringing and despite this is still struggling depression. Usually characters have a complicated backstory, so the simplicity of his was really interesting.
