Here at Locket Loves, we all love to curl up with a good book. There is nothing quite like immersing yourself in another world for a while. A character in a book can stay with you for a long time, become like a friend, a role model or just someone who makes you think “Yeah - I can be a little bit more like them, they make the world a better place”.
A writer can put words together to captivate the reader and capture moments and feelings that we don’t even know we have, want or need. Often you will find yourself quoting a good book long after you have finished reading it. Something about them just resonates with you on a personal or spiritual level.
Sometimes we can be inspired by a quote we didn’t even know was from a book. Popular social media memes, shared thousands of times, inspiring many, are often from our most cherished novels. An example of this is Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful” from Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
Books can also inspire you to do things you wouldn’t normally do - like sign up for a marathon - whoops!! Some books should come with a warning!
Here is a list of my top three must reads for major inspiration.
The Journey In between - Keith Foskett. www.keithfoskett.com
The Pants of Perspective - Anna McNuff www.annamcnuff.com
