The best destination for book recommendations in the world.

Thought-provoking books to better understand ourselves and each other

From the time I was a little girl, books have guided me. They have helped me see and understand my place in the world, and encouraged me to look at it in different ways. I owe a debt of gratitude to all the brilliant authors over the last decades – I wouldn’t know what I know today without them.

I take great pleasure in exchanging books with friends and relatives, and then share and discuss with eachother what we think of them. During those conversations I noticed that every person connects to different parts of the story, and because our experiences are unique to us, books often lead to interesting and meaningful conversations.

The several life stories and anecdotes enriched my reading experience and inspired me to create this blog – this bookshelf was fuelled by personal interest and compiled out of passion. I’ve created a safe space that allows me to have interesting conversations about books with more interesting people than solely the ones I hold close. I hope the books to read on this bookshelf will help you find something that catches your interest and that it saves you the time and hussle of browsing through the millions of available titles.

Let’s join the conversation.
