Blogging and Writing Tips

Top 7 fiction books from my Book-shelf everyone must read.

Books are my best friends. They have helped me in the darkest phases of my life and guess what! They have never judged me- like humans do.

A movie must have let me down, a Netflix show I watched must have proven to be boring but a book- no matter what– I always find it soothing and comforting. Every story has something to teach you, has something to give you.

So here are my all-time favorite 7 books that I would recommend everyone to read.

The Fault In Our Stars- John Green

Even though I am the kind of person who would love to live her life in solitude and all alone-living in mountains in a small native place with cool weather and greenery around.

I am also a hopeless romantic person in the other world built in my head. Perhaps, that part of my life will be a kind of different world —— in some parallel universe than in real. Just like Hogwarts.

The fault in our stars has my heart because even with its sad ending it’s the kind of pure love that we all want to live once in our life.

Hazel Grace and Agustus Waters are the best compatible couple and the most important thing is– they had theirs forever in the little time they had in their life. But it was magical and pure.

When in reality people are blessed with all the time yet they have to live a wrecked life just because they live to please the world by sacrificing their love for the sake of family honor and respect in society – while others end up taking their partners for granted.

No one wants to work for love. Love is not easy in this wrecked-up world.

The book has some amazing quotes that really make me feel there is someone out there who so understands me i.e John Green.

“Pain Demands to be felt.”

By John Green in “The Fault in our stars.”

But my favorite one is–

“This world is not a wish-granting factory.

John Green in ‘The Fault in our Stars.”

P.S I love you- Cecelia Ahern

Somehow I have lost my book from my collection and have no picture of the book with me.

Imagine your loved one left you letters knowing you will be devastated after they left this world.

And those letters help you heal, ease your pain, help you see through the brighter side of life, and help you learn to re-live with a smile remembering them for good.

That’s exactly what Gerry did for his soulmate Holly. They were childhood lovers, imperfectly perfect for each other but tested by life and death.

Gerry passed away from a brain tumor and left love notes starting from Holly’s 30th birthday- and following months, guiding her to live her life to the fullest.

We experience Holly going through all emotions but eventually guided by her one and only strength, the love of her life– even after death.

Isn’t that what love is all about? and Where do we find such people in real?

One Hundred Names- by Cecelia Ahern

I am a huge fan of Cecelia Ahern and have read more of her books apart from the ones on this list. Perhaps, I need all her recent one’s in my collection soon.

One Hundred Names- is a kind of book I have read twice. A book that is still calling me to revisit it again.

This book really helps me get back to writing when I am stuck in life- and inspires me a lot.

It’s a story about Kitty Logan who is a journalist and is going through a tough time in her life as her career is at stake. Her one mistake of accusing a teacher of abusing students which apparently was a false claim brought her whole sparkling career down the dungeon.

Apart from that- she lost her one best friend, her guide, Constance to cancer. When Kitty met Constance before passing away, Kitty happened to ask her one question- what is that one story Constance always wanted to write?

This is where Constance guides her to a file that leads to one hundred names but nothing more– just names.

Confused, and clueless Kitty has this one chance to prove herself and win back her career, through Constance’s undone story. But how will she solve the mystery?

That’s what this book is about. Grab the book and read to know more.

The Kite-Runner- Khaled Hosseini

A story about an Afgan refugee in America taking us on a journey through his childhood, his home back in his home country, the days he misses and love, craving his father’s affection and his best friend- Hasan.
This book is a must-read to know the feeling of loss, despair, friendship, self-love, and redemption.

Actually reading Khaled Hosseini’s all three books is a must but this book really is a masterpiece. I had read it years ago although I remember how much it had kept me on edge and how emotional was it to read it through.

A Man Called Ove- Fredrik Backman

An old man, who learned how to live and survive throughout his life alone, learned all the basic skills of life on his own and finds the new generation lame and lazy.

For Ove to call a guy to fix a small repair of your house, or to do basic plumbing is something that doesn’t make sense to him. He feels a man/woman should learn all these skills and do it on their own.

A man like Ove is strong on his principles and has survived his dark phase with a strong mindset yet there is something about him that is off!

Ove wants to commit suicide. Why? Read the book to know more.

Every man should be like Ove, and every woman deserves a man like Ove. Ove is the kind of character who makes a place in my heart and will stay there always.
