Stars’ beach reads

05/14/2018

Nagdadala ka rin ba ng libro sa beach? Hindi ka nag-iisa. Ang sarap kayang magbasa nang walang distractions. We don’t know if these celebrities lug their books (or phones with their ebooks) sa kanilang island-hopping, ang alam lang namin ay they love
to read.

Bianca King
“Mindfulness for Beginners” by John Kabat-Zinn and “The Art of Happiness” by the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler are what I consider the most significant books I’ve read so far. They’re easy to understand and applicable to one’s life. They are for people who are trying to be more self-aware of their actions and the choices they make in life. They help you get in touch with your core.

Matteo Guidicelli
“The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” by Robin Sharma is about a city guy who, one day, says no to living a corporate life, gives up everything he owns, and goes up the Himalayas. He chills there for a year or two and comes back to the city a different person.
From that book, you can read that life is all but a mindset. It’s also about the people you surround yourself with. When there’s a problem, try not to look for the negative. Always find positive things from the situation. That’s what I took away from reading the book. Since then, I started surrounding myself with positive-minded people.

Diego Loyzaga
Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol” is not the most significant book I’ve read. But, it’s the most recent I’ve read. It’s about the Freemasons and the Illuminati. I find them very intriguing, and I really want to learn about them. If you know the movies “Angels & Demons” and “The Da Vinci Code,” this is similar in theme. It’s something you can get addicted to. It’s a page-turner.

Beauty Gonzalez
I read a lot of books but usually forget what they’re about soon after. The one that had an impact on me is David Macinnis Gill’s “Black Hole Sun.” I love it because it talks about mental illness. Before reading it, I thought that it wasn’t normal to feel “weird.” The book made me realize that, sadly, this is “normal” to some people. It has taught me empathy. I don’t have a mental illness—I’m perfectly fine—but this is a nice book for people dealing with those
issues.

Sofia Andres
I learned a lot from (Rick Warren’s) “The Purpose Driven Life.” It gives you advice when it comes to thinking about what you want to be in the future. Before I read the book, I didn’t have a purpose. As a young teenager, I was the happy-go-lucky type. A friend gave that book to me, and it totally changed my outlook on life.
