Books That Made Me… Fall in Love

Today I’m pleased to bring you another guest post in my ‘Books That Made Me…’ feature and today it’s Kiera’s turn from The Book Cwtch and she’s talking about the books that made her fall in love. Enjoy!


Books That Made Me… Fall in Love

This is the first time I’ve done a guest post for another blogger and I’m so glad it will be for Jenny. She’s been super great helping me with all my questions.

I believe that books that made you fall in love are the books that will stay with you for the rest of your life. I’ve read so many amazing books in my lifetime so picking my favourites was a tricky process. But I’m really happy with the books I’ve chosen as they are the ones that left lasting impressions on me and helped shaped me into the person I am today.

This book made me fall in love with the goodness inside of people. It showed me that no matter what happens everyone has the power to change the things that matter and become a better person. Although it was at times difficult to read due to the nature of the book, I came out the other side feeling like I had learnt a million important lessons about love and life.

In my opinion, Ned Vizzini was one of the greatest writers of our generation. I have fallen in love with every sentence, every character, ever story in his books. This book taught me to love my flaws, they made you who you are. One day you will find someone who loves every part of you, all the good things and all the bad.

This is by far the best book I’ve read this year, it’s just beautiful. Two boys bond over the things they can teach each other. They teach each other to see the beauty in life and both bring out the best aspects of their personality. This book left me feeling happy and content when I finished reading it I just wanted to do all the things that would make me happy. Plus I now want to drive into the desert in a pick up trust and get drunk whilst star gazing.

Where would my list be without this majestic beauty on it? This book made me fall back in love with reading. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with so many quotes and metaphors that I’ve fallen in love and really connected with. It’s just an amazing book and everyone I’ve introduced it to has first shouted at me for leaving them in tears then thanked me for the life lessons it taught them. We don’t have much time on this Earth but it’s what we do and the people we touch that make us good people and give our life meaning.

I hope you enjoyed my post and once again and big thank you to Jenny for having me.

    • I’ve never read it myself but it does sound good. I’ve read TFiOS though and it’s one of my absolutely favourites! I cried for like a week! I want to re-read before the movie but I don’t think I’ll go and see the movie at the cinema… Might wait until the DVD or I can buy it online because I think I’ll just embarrass myself too much!

  1. Hmm, that’s a tough one, as I’m not a big novel reader to be honest. The book I always revert back to is The Outsiders though. It will always be my favourite book I think. So, maybe that one made me fall in love with reading in the first place?! Will that do?!
