Remember when you were a kid and you thought being a grown-up meant having all the answers? Well, now it's 2015 and we're still trying to figure out life. Terms like "life lessons" and "life hacks" pop up frequently — like right here! — but at the end of the day, we're all still searching for the answers to our biggest questions.

It isn't all bad. Life is an adventure, after all, and a huge part of the excitement comes from new discoveries. Because we're naturally impatient creatures, though, we want the answers and we want them now. And because we can all be pretty dense at times, we also forget that we've learned anything at all before now.

Well, here's your reminder. These are the books that taught you really important life lessons when you read them. If you haven't yet had the pleasure of enjoying these titles, I strongly suggest you pick them up and start learning from them today.
