In the course of my life there have been several books that have marked me in some way, whether it is because of their story, their message, their characters, or all of those combined. They are stories that have made me cry, laugh, worry and love; and for that they are meant to last in my heart.
I'm going to mention ten of them, all of which I highly recommend.
