I want to create a book list to read for this year. I am not an avid reader at present but want to hold on to one book at a time and read at bedtime. Make this a habit to read at least 10 minutes every night, ok every weekday night!
Would you nice people please leave comments with “must to read” books from your list?
And I am determined to finish Ponniyin selvan this year so switched to audio podcast version of this novel. I have made tremendous progress with this setup and love it 🙂 This is one of the reason why I love my evening walk 🙂
This post’s comment section is going to be of great help for me as well… I’ve been wanting to get back to reading for quite a while but no luck as yet 😟
Dont miss Michelle Obama’s Becoming
I watched the Netflix show. will it still be a good read?
The show is like a trailer. The book is better. I would say Yes. Read.
21 lessons for 22 st century by Yuval Noah Harris
checked this out from library few days back 🙂
Any book by Jo Nesbo is a keeper if you like thrillers 🙂 what are your favourite genres?
Errm I don’t know. I think I like biographies.
I have heard good things about Abdul Kalam’s biography
The recent one that stayed with me – “The boy in striped pajamas”
My all time favourites include –
– The kite runner,
– And the mountains echoed by Khalid Hosseini
– Shiva Trilogy (Less of mythology, more of fiction to me)
thank you all. Placed all books on hold in local library. Hope I will get at least one of them soon. Please keep sharing more suggestions
I came across your blog recently and delurking to comment. I used to read a lot but I drift into a reader’s block at times.
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah was a good book to bring me out it.
Another one was A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman or Britt Marie/ Beartown by the same author.
Little Fires Everywhere By Celeste Ng and Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens are good too.
These books are light reading and does not need much effort. Take a look at the Nightingale, it is a WW2 based novel but it will make your cry .
