The Book List-Part II

Now I know all of you were waiting to read this next one(hopefully,) and I was so waiting to write it! So here it is, four other books I’ve read this year ūüėÄ

5)How They Met and Other Stories by David Leviathan

This is literally one of the greatest short stories book I’ve ever read! It’s adorable and cute and has the sweetest and happiest stories. In all honesty, I only read this after I found David Leviathan on¬†Will Grayson, Will Grayson,¬†but I have to admit he’s all kinds of great. This short story book gave me serious mushy feelings!

6)The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald 

I don’t think words are honestly needed to describe this book. Its a classic! And such a well-written one too! There’s no beating Scott Fitzgerald. Ever.

7)The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly 

I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t wanted to read this book since forever. Ever since I heard about the main story, I had desperately wanted to read this book. And it’s a great book! Since law is extremely tiring and painful, such books are complete must-reads.

8)All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr 

For the past year, I’ve been a sucker for prize winner books. So when I finally merged to find a copy of the Pulitzer prize winner here, there was no way I wasn’t going to buy it! The book is based in World War II and I think that makes everyone think it’s destined for a sad ending, and a sad beginning¬†and a sad middle. However, this is by far the best book I’ve read this year. Everything in the book is beautiful and happy and this book will for sure make your heart ache! My absolute favourite line is:¬†He can see nothing. But he can see her.¬†

The Book List- Part I

It’s August, 2015 and soon the year will end. And in these eight months I’ve read a total of 20 books yay!(I’m seriously proud of myself)

So here are a few of them!

1)The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
This is one book I’ve wanted to read since a very, very long time. I couldn’t find copies in any of the book stores nearby and when I finally got it a month ago, I was ecstatic! I have to say, it was definitely worth the wait. Oscar Wilde is great and his writing is even greater. This classic is a must read!

2)The Maze Runner Series by James Dashner
The Indian covers say “For fans of the Hunger Games”, but believe me when I say you CAN read this series without having read the Hunger Games. It’s really well written and everyone needs something to keep them occupied post-Harry Potter. TMR has become one of my favourite series now!

3)Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
I’ve heard a great deal about this book, and it does not disappoint. The shifting narrations between the two characters is really, really good and some of the quotes in the book are so good!

4)The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith
So you probably know but if you don’t, RG is actually JK Rowling, so well obviously I had to read it! JKR did really well in her first crime novel but I think no one can really get over her magical image. Also, this was my first crime novel ever where I was correctly able to guess the murderer!(way to go me!)

So this is it for now, and how many of you have read any of these?
