Your Words--The Book that Rocked Your World

I'm always looking for new reading material.

I also always want to know what people love to read.

So tell me, what book do I HAVE to read and why?

What book did you read that totally rocked your world?


  1. many books, so little time. Hmmm. Here's a few that I've really enjoyed.

    Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert: some hated it, I, personally, loved it. Skip the movie and read the book.

    An Italian Affair by Laura Fraser (non-fiction). Love reading travel books about Italy.

    One Year Off by David Cohen. (non-fiction) Oh, how I dream of traveling around the world. This family done it and then wrote about. Loved reading about all the different places.

    The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher. (fiction) Charming story set in an Amish community. This book is part of a series, but I don't believe you have to read them in order. We have a couple of large Amish communities near us so I really enjoyed learning a bit more about their lifestyle.

    Currently reading, and enjoying, The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau. (non fiction)

    Happy Reading!

  2. At first I thought that this was a really difficult question to answer. I constantly have books on my "to read" list (btw--you should join GoodReads if you need ideas), as well as one or two I'm currently reading, so I have quite a few favorites that have moved me and that I continue to think about.
    But then I thought about the book I read most often, the one that challenges, teaches and comforts me the most. And it's The Book of Mormon. I love reading it, especially in conjunction with the Bible, because it teaches me about the Savior in a very personal way. It helps me want to be a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, and member of my community. I think any book that can motivate me like that has to be the one that has rocked my world the most.

  3. I loved The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It is a great book that talks about how the times where for maids living in Mississippi in the 1950s. Excellent book that I could not put down.

  4. Hey Stranger! I've been gone a while, but scrolling through your old posts to catch up.

    I have a book I'm about to read (I know that's not quite what you were asking, but....)it's a book my husband just finished reading and he is DYING for me to read it. It was suggested to him by many friends and co-workers of his.

    Same Kind Of Different As Me - By Ron Hall and Denver Moore.

    It's a true story that these two men wrote together about their lives and how their paths crossed. It's supposed to be very moving, which is exactly what I like. I think I might start it today. :)
