4 books!!! This post is reeeeeeeeaally gonna do great injustice to certain books that I have read, but don’t make it here just because of the number. I want to cheat and list all the lovely books that I have read, but I won’t since I promised you that I will be truthful throughout this challenge. Hmph! *Grumpily typing off 4 of my favorite books*
1. Harry Potter : Seriously I cannot take the literal meaning of book and list only one of the seven parts. I love the story of the boy who lived. That ends it. I have read the story more than 20 times. After 20, I did not keep count. My reading habit started here, went around the world and is crazily rocking my life so badly that I have set off on the mission of a mini-library and still HP is my favorite and will remain to be.
2. Angels and Demons: This gripping book had me as captive on the day before my Biology board exam. Only after finishing this, did I start studying for the exam. And till now, the thrill vibrates in me throughout, till the last page of the book whenever I take it out for a bit of re-reading.
3. P.S I love you: The first book that I read, wanting to break my monotonous Rowling-Dan Brown-Sheldon circle. Till this book happened, I had read many books but never went out for a variety. I used to stick to known authors. Cecelia made me realize books have so many flavors and that I need to explore more. 🙂
4. Master of the Game: Spanning across generations, this novel hit me with a bolt and I absolutely loved how the manipulation is put forth as the centre plot and yes, that’s what this world is. Manipulative.
I picked up 4 books from my earlier reading days. These 4 books still remain the same when I touched them the first time. After these, I have read a lot, ventured into Science fiction, fairytale reading, gripping thrillers and many more. To all of those books, this post is a great injustice. Somehow, I will try to make it up for this. I still have not gone into heavy reading. Certain books which I want to read, but not yet started for the fear that I will quit halfway through. I never leave a book unread, once I have started. Even if the book is not exactly my cup of tea. Leaving a book half-read is a crime. An unforgivable sin. So, I prepare myself before reading any book and make sure that I appreciate the good in it, no matter what.
Until later 🙂
You have my master of the game book right? 🙂
I think I do. Should go check it at Trichy 😉
HP of course:)
I liked Deception Point more than Angels and Demons actually, but that’s just me:)
P.S: I Love You I haven’t had the guts to read for I cried too much at the movie.
Sydney Sheldon’s books always have had a strange hold over me:)
Nice list Keia:)
Thanks PeeVee 🙂 I like Deception point too 🙂 And yeah P.S I love you makes you cry your heart out even in the book form.. I couldn’t get over the heaviness even after several days..
Omg, your display pic is so cute!
Love HP too. When the last book came out I went to Odyssey and waited in line at 6am! I’m so glad you haven’t listed that Vampire stuff that everyone is crazy about. Or do you like them? Sorry if I’ve offended.
I didn’t have the guts to read P.S I love you either. I cannot read a book where the husband dies. Noooooooooooooooo.
Yeah I like the Twilight Saga too, but no probs.. 🙂 Everyone has different tastes and Twilight Saga plays more on a single fantasy than putting together the strings of literature at work… 🙂
Ahem ahem, Harry Potter, Twilight….. literature?
Do you really want to be beaten to death by the numerous fans of HP and Twilight? 😛 I accept they are not exactly literature in your sense, but you cannot beat them in presenting the imagination so creatively and captivating the readers. 🙂 HP will always retain the top position of my favorite list. Learn to live with it. If you ever speak another word against it, you are soooooo done 😛 😀
Haha.. I agree, this is REALLY tough challenge. I mean picking 4 books? Just 4? Harry potter is definitely on my list too.. But the other three not so much. I mean I liked them but they din’t make it to my favorites list.
HP always tops everyone’s list na? What are your other favorites?
Hmm right now its ‘the book thief’ and James frey’s two books ‘My friend leonard’ and ‘Million little pieces’. Try them out if get the chance 🙂
Sure will do 🙂 I am always on the look-out for someone to say, “Hey, that book’s good” and the next book I buy is the one they mentioned. Thanks 🙂
