Which books changed your world?

There's a major trending topic at Twitter at the moment: #booksthatchangedmyworld. Which got me thinking which I would say mine was..I think it would have to be 'The Bell Jar' by Sylvia Plath.

My brother bought me the book for my..17th? (maybe 18th) birthday. I had never heard anything about Sylvia Plath before that and I have to admit I let it sit in my room for a good few months before picking it up. When I did however I read it the entire way through without interruption..


I would say it changed my life because it spoke to me on so many levels..I was in a very different place than I am now (thankfully) at that age and I think it was the first time I felt like somebody understood me (I know how lame that sounds! - Teenage angst!) but it really did make a major impact on me.
