1.The Power of Your Subconscious Mind
Every aspect of your life – sleep, happiness, (financial) success and your relationships with others – will benefit from reading The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy. We think that anyone who wants to help himself on a spiritual level will benefit from the simple techniques that are given. Energy will start flowing once you notice the results.
2.Enough About Me: The Unexpected Power of Selflessness
Bring a lovely balance to your life by NOT putting yourself first all the time. The satisfaction you will get by trying out the methods outlined by Richard Lui will affect your whole life. You will achieve more satisfaction at work, at home, in your community and with everyone who is close to you. According to us this book is meaningful because of its practical information.
Gifts are better when they are in the form of wisdom and not materialized. That is exactly what Kahlil Gibran is showing us in the Prophet. We chose this book for our top 10, because of its unique view of what we can give each other when we think there is absolutely nothing left to give.
4.The Book of Longings: A Novel
In our opinion this book by Sue Monk Kidd is interesting, because of the time setting in which it takes place. The story is about Ana, and she lives in the first century. She is not very obedient, and struggles to find and create her own path in life. If you are searching for your passion and love reading a historic novel, this is your pick.
5.New Madrid Earthquake: A Disaster Thriller
The New Madrid fault zone has led to a series of earthquakes that have a huge impact on two families. Their stories unfold with such specific descriptions, that you can almost feel what they have experienced. Not only did we choose this book by Bobby Akart for its realistic storytelling, but also because of the intense sensations of love, fear, anger, and joy that can be felt.
6.Jack (Oprah’s Book Club)
The fourth book that takes place in Gilead (Iowa) describes a complex American history. Marilynne Robinson shares the interracial romantic relationship between its two main characters with you in Jack. This book is in our top 10, because the subject was, and still is, relevant today.
7.Esther: A Royal Beauty
This biblical novel shares the story of Esther, a Jewish orphan who is forced to live in a palace. She then connects with the king, and sets a heroic example to save people’s lives. We think the research in this book by Angela Hunt is extremely well portrayed, and it shows the impact a woman can have on her surroundings and relationships.
8.The Alchemist, 25th Anniversary: A Fable About Following Your Dream
Anyone who knows he should listen more to his heart or start to follow his dreams should read Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist. Follow Santiago’s journey, an Andalusian shepherd, while he gets much more than he ever wished for. This is our pick for what is essential in life.
9.Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Book 4
If you love Harry Potter, you must read The Goblet of Fire. The book by J.K. Rowling doesn’t just give you the chance to escape real life whilst you are reading it; it also comes with feelings of hope, belonging, and love. It is also for all ages, which makes it an interesting book on any bookshelf according to us.
10.The Nightingale: A Novel
The story is set in France during a time of war. Love and betrayal are key in a young woman’s life (and her sister’s), when she tries to save many people from the Nazis after joining the Resistance. Kristin Hannah has succeeded magnificently in describing how women experience war with The Nightingale: A Novel. We love this book, because it shows the strength and spirit of women in general.
