Reading is the safest and the most relaxing way to learn important life lessons. That`s why today I gathered five engaging books that will help you to become a little bit better and teach you some important truth.  These books are not about self - improvement or personal development, these are the books that will teach you how to love, respect be loyal and even how to hate through the life and action of others. Each author in my list has a very special way in revealing the truth to the reader. Some are gently, soft and poetic, while others are rough and direct. But I hope all the books from my list will leave you with many experiences and emotions. I would love to erase my memory and reread all of these five books once again.

                                Martin Eden
                               Novel by Jack London

“But I am I. And I won't subordinate my taste to the unanimous judgment of mankind”

This was one of the first books by Jack London I`ve read. A very romantic and beautiful novel about a young sailor from working class who is struggling to become a writer and to win the heart of a girl from high society. I was fascinated by Martin`s enthusiasm and his passion for knowledge. He is definitely a great example of a person who is trying to become better, pursuing his blue dream. The ending of the story is sad and a little bit shocking, but absolutely understandable. I want to recommend this to everyone, especially to those people, who are still tying to find their place in the world. READ THE BOOK→

                                       Nineteen Eighty-Four
martin eden ninety eighty four bad company A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings The Mountain That Loved a Bird book reviewNovel by George Orwell
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” 

I know this book might sound a bit cliché, but it is a must read for everyone. Nineteen Eighty-Four is a British dystopian novel written by talented writer George Orwell and originally published in 1949 about life under a constant surveillance.This fiction has a lot of truth between lines and if you are a person who lived far away from Soviet Union, but want to imagine what was it like to live under a strict governmental machine of total propaganda, repression and humiliation you need to read Nineteen Eighty-Four without any doubt. While I was reading this book I was thinking about our past and how many things it has in common with the present. I was thinking about the country I`m living  and other countries surrounding me. And of course I was thinking about the future of the humanity, do we have a chance? READ THE BOOK→

Short story by Gabriel García Márquez
“His huge buzzard wings, dirty and half-plucked, were forever entangled in the mud.” 

First time I`ve read this book at school and I remember to like the story very much. Gabriel García Márquez combined two absolutely opposite literature genres fantasy and realism in one masterpiece. Story starts when a very poor family finds an old man with huge wings who have crash-landed in their yard. The author does not explain this supernatural event, he does not open up to the audience a character and personality of an angel. He simply leaves this to the readers mind and everyone can decide for themselves who was this mysterious old man with wings. READ THE BOOK→

In Bad Company
Book by Vladimir Korolenko
“Better to have a piece of heart in the chest, than a cold stone.” 

I doubt my readers have ever heard about this book and the author Vladimir Korolenko, but I couldn`t leave this book without attention. In Bad Company can also be translated as Children Of The Underground is a tragic story fulfilled with sadness and truth. Book events took place at the end of 18th century in a small Polish town. Author demonstrates an everyday life of two boys from polar families - a family of main judge of a city and family of beggars. This story is sincere and it definitely leaves a very pure and kind print in everyone's heart, I wish I`ve read this lovely story at school. READ THE BOOK→

The Mountain That Loved a Bird 
Book by Alice McLerran 
“I am Joy, and I have come to greet you.” 

Colorful and emotional book written by Alice McLerran and featuring the most beautiful illustrations by Eric Carle. The story is about a little birdy named Joy and how she healed and brought back to live a broken lonely mountain. Every words in this book is saturated with love, loyalty and hope. Even though this book is not lacking in sad moments, but I think you can definitely read `The mountain that loved a bird` with your little kids, since it will teach them to love nature and always believe in happy endings.
