Book Challenge Day 13- A Non-Fiction Book That You Actually Enjoyed

Posted on

I think this one is a bit of a cop-out for me since my favorite style books are memoirs (non-fiction). But, this question was originally “What’s your favorite series?” and I think I’ve aptly covered that here.  So, I’ve decided to take this day to introduce you to a non-fiction book that I loved. If you must, pretend that I’m super shocked I was able to make it through an entire non-fiction book without stimulants. I’ll help- “Can you believe it!?” “It’s a miracle!”

Now, without further ado:

 

This is the incredible story of a boy who is  ripped from his home in the middle of a war and, despite his best efforts to remain uninvolved, forced into a life of drugs and violence. I was spellbound from the moment that I read the first page. Part of me just couldn’t believe that people actually lived these lives. I sit in a comfy desk chair all day and complain that my work projects don’t always go the way I want them to. These children were forced to become soldiers when they should have been on the playground. This book really opened my eyes to what real unhappiness is and makes me think twice about complaining about my life.

 

Tomorrow we have: The book you’ve read the most times. I’m sure it will be a shock to all of you.

About Jaclyn

I’m a digital copywriter at an advertising agency- think Peggy from Mad Men but remove the print ads and add a website. Between my family, friends and job I hear a lot of interesting things. I’ve decided to share them and how they inspire me on this blog. There’s no theme or goal in mind and I promise I will not update with any kind of regularity. But hopefully whatever I do put up here will be entertaining, or entertaining enough to add to the “procrastinating at work by checking every mediocre website on the internet” list.
