1. The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I’ve been recommending this book to almost everyone I talk to and even if most of them have been skeptical of buying it since it’s a self help book (and alot of people find them silly in which I will never understand why), I will still stand by this and will always be a fan. This book gives point blank and simple advices we usually get but I love how the author approaches the things we take for granted everyday to make you appreciate them all over again. She uses psychology studies to back up what she’s saying too so it makes it interesting!
2. The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Personally, I think there is nothing more tragic than Clare and Henry’s love story. I’m a very impatient person and I hate waiting for things to happen so let alone waiting for people without knowing when they’ll come back or if they’ll ever come back. This book made me realize that one day I’ll meet that one person out there I’ll be willing to wait for despite the uncertainty. (CHEESAYY! haha)
3. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. This book is too sad but I still recommend it. I don’t like hearing about the reality of cancer and I’m sure alot of you dont like it too but Green’s venture into this very sensitive topic shows that can be life and love during and after cancer :)
4. Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom.
5. Vince’s Life by Vince Teves. Admit it girls, we’ve always been so curious as to how boys handle break ups and heartbreak and finally, through this book, we get a little sneak peak! I love how relatable this book is since it’s written by a normal Filipino boy in a very familiar setting with very realistic characters.
6. Table For Two by Marla Miniano. 5 mini love stories, one coffee shop, lots of cheesy lines and characters with stories that you’ve gone through (or will go through) atleast once in your life… need I say more? :)
7. The Household Guide to Dying by Debra Adelaide. I must admit that this was kind of draggy at first but it made me appreciate and understand my stay at home mom so much more :) This book is about a character who’s trying to prepare her family for death by writing lists of advices about every single thing – big or small.
8. A Cook’s Tour by Anthony Bourdain. I’m a big fan of how candid his show is and I love how he wrote this book that way as well! This book made me hungry countless times and made me want to just drop everything, empty out my savings and buy plane tickets to everywhere and anywhere around the world!
9. The Secret History of The World by Mark Booth. I’m a big fan of history and thats why I found this book interesting. I found myself skeptical about the facts the author’s trying to change at times but it did make me question some things about religion, the symbols we see everyday, the existence of secret societies and well ofcourse, the people that run the world (No, in here, its not girls! haha). I’m only 3/4s done with this even if I’ve had this for about a week already since I have to pace myself because of information overload. I can’t wait to finish it though!
10. Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. A novel about a scenario wherein you can relive your life over and over again till you get it right. I’m sure you already know the main character’s realization at the end but then again, I’ve always been believed in the saying it’s all about the journey, not the destination :)
Hope this list will make you fall inlove with reading all over again!
