Any Studio Ghibli/ Miyazaki Film – I know its not a book, but man do I feel so refreshed after watching these!
My favorite is Castle in the Sky.
I would like to keep this an on-going post to add more books as I find them. Please let me know in the comments below if you’ve also had an impact from these amazing authors :)
