In continuation of my previous post “ Books, I hate”,Today I will talk about the books I love most:
- The Alchemist: The Alchemist is a philosophical book which tells us never to lose hope. The Secret is perhaps based on that. It teaches us that when a person really desires something, the whole universe will conspire to help that person realise his dream.
- The Kite Runner: The story expresses human emotions in the face of tragedies. It’s heart-breaking and life-changing and simply one of the best books I’ve ever read. And I am NOT exaggerating
- The Subtle art of not giving a F*ck: This one is truly one of the most ground-shaping nonfiction books I’ve read so far. It will and can change an outlook, a perspective, a life. The idea of not giving a f*ck is a simple way of reorienting our expectation for life and choosing what is important and what is not.
- My Sister’s keeper: My Sister’s Keeper is one of the most heart wrenching stories I’ve ever read. It’s about a girl who is on the cusp of becoming someone. A girl who may not know what she wants right now and she may not know who she is right now, but who deserves the chance to find out.
- The Namesake: This book tells a story which must be familiar to anyone who has migrated to another country – the fact that having made the transition to a new culture you are left missing the old and never quite achieving full admittance into the new. In fact a feeling of never quite belonging to either.
- Gone Girl: Gone Girl is an epitome work of mystery, suspense and much more than just a crime novel, it’s a tale full of turn, twist, thrill and uncertainty. Twist after twist after twist. It’s a page-turner layered with vividly crafted the smartest, dirtiest, filthy-minded characters; it’s the kind of book that’s nearly impossible to put down.
- The Strange case of Billy Biswas: The Strange Case of Billy Biswas is a mocking attack on the materialistic civilized society and applause of the past ancient culture wherein lies the solution for the ills of the modern society. Truth be told, it did leave me dazed and high immediately after finishing it. A good and a quick read, with the message “The most futile cry of man is his wish to be understood”. I found it hard to even put the book down.
- Can I Have it all: A must read for all professional, especially working married women. The book emphasis on the clarity of purpose, conviction, choice, courage, confidence, connect, collaboration, competition and crossing over.
