I don’t read preachy self help type books at all, I find them obvious. Honestly if you cannot figure out for yourself what you need to do to be happy/rich/thin/healthy… then I doubt there is a magic book with the secrets hidden within its pages, seriously.
I read a lot and recently reread a book in which one would not expect to find anything earth shattering, The Gift by Danielle Steel, I know right? *vomit* But it is a beautifully written book about a girl who falls pregnant at sixteen and her story and how it knits together with another family’s story. I cried, most likely relateability.
It is just a touching story that reminds me there is always a reason and that there is no limit to the human spirit.
