30th – July 6th – Name a book that changed your life. (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)
Ahhh… a book that changed my life. I can only answer with one: Clan of the Cave Bear.
I grew up in an iffy environment. The main character in Clan of the Cave Bear was an extraordinary independent young woman. I always felt different from the world around me and here was this girl that was VERY different from those around her and she dealt with it. More than dealt with it, at times she reveled in the fact that she was awesome, even though it was hard.
I think I have said this before but I nearly named my daughter after her. Ayla. I still love that name. It just fills me with courage and strength and an absolution that even when life is tough we got this. We all can do this. Somehow this book shaped who I was to become. It helped shape how I deal with people that do not like me, or that I do not like. It helped change how I react when something bad happens. And it helped shape how I respond to negativity. I have no flight instinct and maybe that’s part of my dna, or maybe this book helped create a woman as strong as Ayla.
Have any books changed your life?
