Hope you’re doing well.
Today I am going to share another side of me. And that is – Self-claimed ardent reader.
If you have read my bio, you will get what I am talking about. I am not going to use the typical cliche sentence – I love reading books. Even though that’s the case. I started taking reading seriously when I was 12 years old. Reading is not just my hobby or pass time. I have always considered it as my part. A part of me grows because I read. I remember saving money to buy novels, sitting up late to finish that book, waiting for the book fair etc. All those memories are tied which each book I own. I may not have a huge library now but intend to build it slowly and steadily. I just don’t collect them for a sake of it, I consider my books as my treasure.
So I decided to start a new series of “Books I recommend”.
These are six books which you may have read or about to discover…
1) The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
I remember reading about the HeLa cell line in one of my classes during bachelors and it was then I came across this book on Henrietta Lacks and the history of HeLa cell line. It’s a gripping story that I would recommend if you want to know more about the changes she made, the whole consent thing and how even today her cells live around the world.
2) .EM and the big HOOM. by Jerry Pinto
A darkly funny as described by the author. I initially thought this book is a little weird to my taste. But soon I realised that the pages were moving faster than I would have thought. Right from the colour combination of the book to the writing style, everything impressed me. It’s a story of love, family, imagination, unseen relationships etc.
3) The Sherlock Holmes Handbook by Ransom Riggs
Tell me who doesn’t like Sherlock Holmes. If you’re someone who would like to know about the methods and mysteries of the worlds greatest detectives then you must read it. From analytical skills usage to life skills you will get a plethora of excellent information.
4) Yesterday I was the Moon by Noor Unnahar
I write poems and love reading books on poems. This one is my recent purchase and also a book which you can complete at a stretch. You will find poetry on different topics like self-love, acceptance, strength etc. If you love reading poems then you must hold this book.
5) Memories Of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon
All of Sidney Sheldon books are amazing. But this particular one holds a lot of memories of one my journey. I literally went with the name of the book and used to read this past midnight. I remember that it was my internship days and was away from home. I used to sit alone in an adjacent room ( not to disturb my roommate ) and keep on reading it. I have to say it is a gripping story of revenge, suspense etc. This one is definitely my all time favourite.
6) The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom
This book holds a special place in my heart. Since it’s a gift from my brother. It’s also my all-time favourite book. I was really hooked on to this one. The character in this book who is known as “Eddie” dies on his 83rd birthday. He wakes up in heaven and from then on meets five people one by one. Read on to find who are these five people and what purpose they had in his life. It will keep you turning pages.
So here it is my six book recommendations. I hope to continue this series because there are many books I would like to share.
Hope you liked the post.
