Quick Synopsis: A boy goes on a philosophical adventure to find his treasure.


This book has been on my to-read list for years. Literal years. This is definitely a fan favorite, and honestly, I can see why. I very genuinely enjoyed this book and I deeply regret not reading it when I was younger.

As an adult, it was still a deeply moving story with a wonderful message. The writing was truly inspirational. Coelho did such an amazing job at creating an enlightening adventure. His words were so poetic. I tagged so many quotes that were absolutely beautiful.

Not only is the story inspirational, I mean, I want to be like Santiago (the main character) and follow my Personal Legend, but the writing itself is inspirational. It was so easy to read and relate to. It was truly wonderful. I think as a kid, or just younger, I would have been more inspired to create and more inspired to follow my dreams.

This book served as such an eye opener. I am even more inspired now to continue this blog and continue trying my hardest to live out my dreams and it’s thanks to Paulo Coelho and Santiago.

This is a definite must-read for anyone who is struggling in life, or anyone who just needs a little inspiration.
