In our undying efforts to bring you engaging columns you won’t find anywhere else, we’ve reached out to the metal world seeking submissions for a new subject: Three amazing books you have to pick up and devour.
Seeing as you read this blog everyday, we went out on a limb and assumed you’d maybe want to get some decent book suggestions from some of your favorite bands, too. So today, we continue this series on rad, must-reads with an entry by Nervosa’s Fernanda Lira.
This is one of the coolest books I’ve ever read! It has a comic book format and it’s based on a true story lived by the author Marjanne Satrapi: She was born and raised in Iran and tells everything she, her family and her friends passed through during the years of dictatorship and after under a fundamentalist regime. It’s interesting, funny, sad and deep at the same time!
The Amytiville Horror
I’m a fan of horror books and films, especially when they are based on true stories! So when I watched this movie and read about the true story, I decided to look for the book. It is, by far, one of the best horror books; it’s REALLY frightening!
Sometimes I had to close the book when I was reading it alone in the house, cause I felt chills in my spine! You’re afraid just because of the way they tell the story, and when you remember it’s a real story, and the book was based on the testimonials the family gave to the police, you get scared as fuck!
The Little Prince
I know it sounds silly and childish, but this is one of the most comforting books out there! People think it’s for children, but in fact it’s FOR PEOPLE, because it tells a lot about how the human being is, and also, it’s very sensitive, from a child’s point of view.
When we’re children, we’re surrounded by a simplicity of living and when you grow up, you acquire new values that not always are very good, so when you read this book, you remember the child inside you and see there’s many unnecessary things you’re doing — just because you’re a grown-up and have responsibilities. It helped me reconnect with old and pure values I had lost many times and from time to time, it helps me on my mission to be a better person!
