The Little Prince by Anthony De Saint-Exupery. Beautiful story about a boy who questions everything about the behavior of men and isn't afraid to confront and express his opinions. The message is that he wants to create a world that is acceptable and reasonable in his eyes. And goes out of his own planet, that I called comfort zone in search of answers

The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende
What a fantastic novel, Love vs Convenience and acceptance, The story of irrational love and rational love really makes us thing about how both can be perfectly acceptable in a society where we try to cover everything for social paradigms and the conflict of whats right or wrong. But when in comes to this love story that survived through 3 generations of war and redemption and injustice you may really wonder and think that yes! everything is possible. I absolutely love it.

"Exit West," by Mohsin Hamid, tells the story of Nadia and Saeed, two young students who fall in love as their country becomes engulfed in civil war. As their environment becomes more violent, the couple must make a decision to stay in their increasingly dangerous homeland or flee. Doors have appeared, which may actually be portals, that they can use to escape their circumstances. A powerful story of endurance, friendship, and the devastation of war.

"A Tale of Three Kings: A Study in Brokenness" is a short allegory written by Gene Edwards "to the brokenhearted Christians coming out of authoritarian groups, seeking solace, healing, and hope".
It is, I believe, relevant to anyone.

The book asks how does one know if a King is Divinely ordained or if a King is selfish, mean and not ordained? Ten Old Testament actors and several principles appear in sometimes abstruse metaphors and tangled syntax.

However, with patience and effort this is a worthy read. It is pertinent in our uncertain times. The book asks me, at the end of the day, to lay aside fear, cease judgment, and examine my own heart.

This time I learned that in order for your dreams to come true, sometime you have to live in someone's else dream for a little while; before you know it you will be living yours. Don't forget to enjoy the ride.
