The one I am currently reading here, Perfect by Judi Miller, is really having an impact on me right now. I am in a moment in my life where I am kinda unfulfilled spiritually and this book helping a lot. :techie-studyinggray: :techie-reference:

I grew up with the Harry Potter saga: those books had a huge impact on my childhood and adolescence. Even now I remember them fondly, and when I re-read them I am immediately brought back to the past.

1. Meditations - Marcus Aurelius - this book got me out of depression, maybe even saved my life, improved my career and really helped me see the world in a calmer way.

2. I'm not being preachy here but any religious text and stories whether The bible, Quran, any Buddhist or Taoist text, anything on Stoicism really, or anything other that has meaningful life experiences of people from the old age and their suffering will help lift you up, speaking from experience.

3. Ivory carver trilogy - Sue Harrison - Starts off optimistic, gets violently brutal very fast, extremely depressing, punishing and painful over the next 2 books. But like the suggestion for #2 it has a lot of experiences of peoples that survived and thrived in extremely hard and impoverished conditions in prehistoric times. Very detailed world building and lots of life lessons to be found in these books, albeit I've heard from others they're just grimdark shock-factor thrillers at the end. Depends what you get out of them I guess.

Cheers.

1. Reasons to Stay Alive - Matt Haig
2. Secrets for the Mad - Dodie Clark

Both of these books somehow felt like a hug when I was feeling alone, or feeling a lot.
