Top 7 Books To Change Your Life For Good

Books are, of course, beyond ink and words. They harness your objectivity in such a way that you ought to surrender to its power and enter a world where you can think anew with new perspectives. As someone once said, books are a portal that opens up into another world, although, like popular belief, I refuse to believe that reading books is a form of escape. From Haruki Murakami to Margaret Atwood, every writer has something to say. It’s up to the reader how one gathers the knowledge and lets themselves be inspired throughout. Let’s skim through some of the books that would change your life.

1. The Master and Margarita a novel by Mikhail Bulgakov. It’s a story about crumbling Russia and how a talking cat and a few others infiltrate a city in order to change some lives forever.

2. The Handmaid’s Tale a speculative novel by Margaret Atwood. This is about an unnamed woman who lives in a dystopian society where women’s rights have been snatched. It’s a novel that should shake you to the core because the idea of dystopia isn’t quite far-fetched.

3. The Picture of Dorian Gray, a novel by Oscar Wilde that takes you to the victorian age and shows you the hypocrisy of society and individuals. In this book full of vile ambitions you might find yourself staring at your portrait.

4. Pride and Prejudice a novel by Jane Austen lets you peep into the depths of societal hypocrisy and individual worth. It’s also a stunning love story that would keep you on your toes until the very end.

5. Jane Eyre is a novel by Charlotte Brontë that revolves around a girl Jane who grows up to be her own person in a society that tried relentlessly to bring her down. I love this book for its gothic references and in its heart, Jane Eyre is a beautiful love story.

6. 1984 a novel by George Orwell is again a dystopian society where there is no freedom to talk, choose, or even think. It would suffocate in a way to make you realize you might very well be living in a dystopian society right now.

7. Waiting for Godot is a play by Samuel Beckett where two of its protagonist waits for a man called Godot but eventually he doesn’t show up. It’s a great take on the absurdity of life.
