The books that change you, that stick with you and cling hard to your ribs bury themselves deep inside, manifesting lessons and bringing forth a burst of understanding you wouldn’t otherwise understand. These are the books that are under my skin, for good, forever. These are not just my favorite books. My favorites can include romantic beach reads, weird meditations on public policy, and comic collections, but what is different about these books are the lessons that stick with me, the memories attached, and the way these books affect my perception of the world and my outlook on life.

I love how simple it is, and it really pulled me in while I was at the library. We often say to never judge a book by its cover, but the reason for covers is to draw in the eye toward something that may be magnificent.
