Hi guys welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday post. In this post I am going to talk about my favourite books from the books I read this year. So without much further ado lets get started. This list is in no particular order, which means that the last book that I mention is not my top fav or the first book I mention is not my top fav, like that.
Clicking on the book images below will take you to their Goodreads Page.
First book I am going to talk is Home by Harlan Coben. This was the first book I read by Harlan Coben and it is definitely not going to be my last. This book is about two boys who were kidnapped ten years ago and then suddenly one of them is found. But where is the other kid? and where was this boy all these years? Going into it I wasn’t expecting much, though it had a high rating on Goodreads but this was not some book I saw recommended by any of my favourite bloggers/vloggers. But when I started reading it I realised that I was a fool to expect not much from it. This book had a lot of twists and turns and it kept me at the edge of my seat throughout. You think you have the plot figured out, well you are wrong.
Next book is The Street Lawyer by John Grisham. This was another book I absolutely loved. This book is about a lawyer who figured out that his firm was up to some shady business. I had read only one book by John Grisham and had loved it so I had kind of high expectation from this book but needless to say it surpassed my expectations. It was a great read.
Next book is Behind Blue Eyes by C.S Duffy. This was another great read. This book is about a girl from London who has gone to Stokholm to live with her boyfriend. There she discovers a skeleton. She then flungs into the murder investigation where she connects various other deaths with this skeleton. Behind Blue Eyes was a thrilling mystery that just kept me guessing till the end. It is not a very popular novel but it is a must read in my opinion if you are someone who loves mystery.
Next is Seraphina Does Everything by Melissa Gratias. This is an illustrated children’s book. It is about a girl who does not want to miss out on anything. Seraphina Does Everything is a book that I felt that everyone should read irrespective of their age because it has a very important message that everyone needs to learn.
The next is The Gift of the Magi by O.Henry. No, it was not a reread and I know I am the only one. Yes I read this book first time this year and I absolutely loved it. I know everyone loves it, but still I have to mention that I too absolutely loved it. It was such a beautiful heartwarming story of love and sacrifice.
The next book is The Warrior Maiden by Melanie Dickerson. It is a Mulan retelling. I just loved this book. I loved this book so much because of the protagonist mainly. I loved the main character, her bravery, her courage. She is a woman who bet the odds. Her character was really well written, and was very relatable. I liked the male character too.
The last book I want to talk about is The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins. This is another book that I absolutely loved. This book just kept me at the edge of the street from the very first page to last with its numerous twists and turns. This book has become one of my favourite mysteries of all time.
This is a book that I think should have made my favourite’s list had I finished it on time. It is Pet Sematary by Stephen King. I am currently reading this and am absolutely loving it, I don’t know whether it would blunder in the end, but up till now I am really enjoying it.
