April Fool's Challenge

Is this challenge almost coming to a close? Not quite yet, we still have a few days left…but boy has this one been, well…challenging. And today is day 8, in which we talk about our mental problems.

Welcome to Day 8 – Books you’ve read that have changed you mentally

Please ignore the type in the graphic. Wow that is embarrassing.

But here are my choices. You know what I’m talking about, right? Books that after you end them, after you turn the pages, you can’t go back to how you were before. You’ve either read something that profoundly changed your thought process, or you’ve been scarred mentally just from the horribleness of the writing…

I wish I could say something profound, like the Bible or the Secret…and while stories from the Bible (not the Secret) have changed my world-view, most of those teachings have been “shown” to me, or taught through Catholic school, so it wasn’t a reading, realizing and changing…which these books did.

  1. by I read this book and the premise still resonates with me. The book’s plot and basis also helped form some of my early political beliefs as a teen.
  2. by A science fiction novel that made me rethink some of my world views.
  3. by
  4. Communion by Whitley Strieber
    Cemented my fear and belief in aliens invaders…
  5. by The allegory of the cave shaped how I viewed the world.
  6. by The concepts behind this novel blew my mind and I still haven’t been able to shake it. Not that I want to.
  7. by The ending of this book rocked my world.
  8. by Concepts in this novel made me think about my priorities.
  9. by I still blame this book for joining the military. Well one of the reasons.
  10. Go Ask Alice by Made me stay far far far away from drugs.

  11. The Diary of a Young Girl (Paperback)  by Opened my eyes.
  12. by I am still unable to read the second book.
