The Alchemist

"We look around at all those who have failed to get what they want and feel that we do not deserve to get what we want either. We forget about all the obstacles we overcame, all the suffering we endured, all the things we had to give up in order to get this far."

I've recently started reading The Alchemist and it's one of those books that you can pretty much tell will be brilliant, after the first few pages. I've heard so much about this book and how inspiring and life changing it is, but I suppose I was just waiting to get around to it in my own time. My sister has actually been recommending that I read it for so long now. Her recommendations I should add, are pretty much always spot on. I'm really excited for this read and hopefully, I will gain as much from it as its millions of other readers. I will most definitely be doing a follow up post once I complete it. I'm hoping to get through it pretty quickly, as I have another book that I've recently purchased and am dying to start.

  4. I read this book in 10th grade and it was mind boggling at first! I should take another look at it and get a positive message this time:)

    1. yea i probably wouldn't have gotten as much out of it, if I read it while I was still in high school. I'd definitely say to give it another go !
