Help me Read?

Hey guys..

I have this one-week break coming up post my exams this month. I really want to make sure I read some good books during that time.

I normally don’t put down a good book till I have finished reading it cover to cover.

The last being Khaled Hosseini’sThe Kite Runner‘. And let me tell you I am absolutely in love with the book! ❀

Anyway, the point being that I am in search of good books to buy. I would love to hear your suggestions!

I read books written by Dan Brown, Paulo Coelho, Khaled Hosseini (as stated above), Anita Nair, Chetan Bhagat, Sidney Sheldon and so on! I hope that gives you an idea about my preferences!

So go on and suggest some good books I can read!

Cheers! πŸ™‚

      1. I gave up when Raskolnikov was still in front of the front door on the 100th page trying to make his my up whether to kill the old woman or not. πŸ™‚ I had no patience for people who take forever to make their minds up! I was only 17 and my husband who loves it says I should give it another chance now that I’m more mature πŸ™‚ but I can’t say I’m any less impatient now than at 17…

      2. It’s a terrible gap in my reading not having read Crime & Punishment! I say. What about Proust – I’m not sure what it’s called in English – In search of lost time (A la recherche du temps perdu)? Again I only got as far as the madelines and then I thought if this is the highlight of the whole thing I’m quitting! πŸ™‚

  2. I love Dan Brown & Khaled Hosseini too, and have been meaning to read something by Paulo Coelho for a while now!
    Maybe you’d enjoy reading something like Conn Iggulden’s Emperor series, Book Thief by Markus Zusak or The Help by Katheryn Stockett πŸ™‚

  3. On a lighter note, have you ever read Terry Pratchett? It’s all fantasy (set in another world) and very satirical. My favourite is any one of the Witches trilogy.
    My favourite book though (also historical fantasy) is Mary Stewart’s ‘The Crystal Cave’. It’s got history, magic, and mysteries galore πŸ™‚

      1. Hehe! Because that’s not how you create a pingback Shilpa! πŸ™‚
        Edit your post, select the text that shows my name, click on the button that says “create link” amongst the toolbar, paste my site’s url there and give update. It should work. πŸ™‚


  5. Something of your taste: Kane and Abel, The Prodigal Daughter and Shall we tell the President by Jeffrey Archer. They’re a trilogy. But can be read separately and they’d still make perfect sense. Oh and read his short stories too!
    Something different: Wuthering Heights. You just HAVE to read it. I just finished and I’ve never read a more intense book. And and and, God of Small Things by… Arundahti Roy I think.

  6. Visakha, Some books that I loved are : Animal farm by George Orwell, Short stories by O.Henry, Ayn rand’s novels. Since you are doing MBA, I think you will like the book “Snapshots from Hell:The making of an MBA” by Peter M. Robinson.It’s a hilarious book about the author’s experience of his MBA years in US.Apart from these, I think once you start using goodreads website, you will get good recommendations based on your previous reading list.
