Books I’m So Happy Were Recommended to Me

Don’t we all have angels who whisper books that just blow our minds? And horrible ones too 😛 Here are a few books I was recommended by some lovely people, and I am GRATEFUL!thank you so much GIF by Mauro Gatti-downsized_large

  • Ghachar Ghochar b Vivek Shanbhag: A book that got me emotionally entangled because stories like these are all around, including my own house. Everything that is happening in the plot has happened to a lot of us, maybe in bits but has definitely taken place. Maybe that’s why this book has won so many hearts. Review here 🙂
  • The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clara: Cassandra Clare has a signature style, and her storytelling has a pattern. She engages people with the characters and hence, we are all sucked into the plot. This book is definitely a great example. There is a steady plot development and the characters grow along with the plot. Review here 🙂
  • Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
  • Em and the Big Hoom by Jerry Pinto: Em and The Big Hoom talks about multiple things, the most important being mental illness. It’s a humorous approach to mental illness and people prone to such things.  The book points out the irony that exists in our society regarding suicidal tendencies observed is a lot of people nowadays. Review here 🙂
  • Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman: Neil Gaiman has written these stories his way, adding hints of humor, fear, and sadness. This is one book that can only be read, in order to absorb its essence. Incredible storytelling, indeed! Review here 🙂
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood: I have loved every bit of the book. It’s a journey. A journey of emotions that include joy, grief, pain, betrayal, and hope. Hope- because sometimes that’s all we are left with. To dream that someday all this will be a bad dream and then there’ll be a new, better life. This extraordinary creation has drained me emotionally and has indeed made me believe in the fact that truth can be scary. Review here 🙂
  • The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse
  • The Vegetarian by Han Kang: Han Kang has written the plot in such a free-flowing, casual manner, yet managed to give attention to every single detail. The characters are exceptionally written, especially the men. Their thoughts and mental turmoils have been penned down in a way that we get to know the characters in a more personal, delicate way. The plot keeps you guessing and takes turns that is unpredictable and surprisingly satisfying. Review here 🙂
  • To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo: With an extremely innovative plot and fresh writing, Alexandra Christo has left me craving for more. Review here 🙂
