3. The Book Thief
    Markus Zusak
    Best quote: “I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race – that rarely do I even simply estimate it.

4. The Diary of a Young Girl
    Anne Frank

5. Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 1

6. Sophie’s World
    Jostein Gaarder
    Best quote: “Men have created the gods in their own image. They believe the gods were born and have bodies and clothes and language just as we have. If oxen, horses, and lions could draw, they would depict gods that looked like oxen, horses, and lions.”

7. The Prophet
    Kahlil Gibran
    Best quote: “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” 


8. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
Mark Manson
Best quote: “You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact. And if you go around giving a fuck about everything and everyone without conscious thought or choice—well, then you’re going to get fucked.”
