3 books that changed my life

I used to really love books. I can finish a 500 hundred pages book within 3 hours. Once my mind focused on a book, I am completely submerged in it. Well, I used to be that passionate. Now I am having a hard time to finish the book which I started to read. Plus, right now I am in my semester break where I don't have any productive day 😂('cause you know, we need a break) That is my cheap excuse. You won't buy it.

But if I had to choose, I would choose an English and self-help genre book.

So, here is my 3 favorite booklists I ever read. Since I am also not that good in English, these three books are quite easy to understand with simple vocabulary. So, don't worry about them as you also can improve English by reading these books.

1. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

Randy Pausch was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon. He had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and so he was invited to give his last lecture. His book is about his crazy and unreasonable childhood dreams and even though he died at young age, he is able to achieve his childhood dream.

After reading his books, I started to recall, 'what was my childhood dreams' and want to make my childhood dream lists as well as he did. I am amazed, I mean who would believe that our crazy + unreasonable childhood dreams can actually come true. As we dream of something crazy we knew we won't be able to achieve it. We thought it was crazy. We actually limit ourselves. So try to read this book to find out Randy Pausch's story.

2. Reclaim Your Heart by Yasmin Mogahed

Reclaim your heart is my first English books that I love. I get to know this book through my friend. After reading her book I feel like I should also have one. It is quite expensive but I really don't mind buying it because its worth it. Whenever we feel down, Reclaim your heart can entertain us.

It tells us to break free on heartbreak and disappointment of life. Each of her words consoles our heart telling us we are not alone.

3. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

I do not take pictures of this book because I lost it. This book was published a long time ago but I just recently read it recommended by my friend. This book is a novel about a boy who travels to find a treasure. As he travels, he meets a lot of people and learns a lot of things. After reading the alchemist, I bought a lot of his books and currently reading The Zahir but I have no idea when I will be finishing it. XD

That's all for me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you guys have your own favorite booklists feel free to share yours in the comment below.

Till then.
