I remember putting up a post in June about losing my anybooks account alongside all my novels that I forgot to document. Funny enough, I can’t really recall any of them because they weren’t popular novels but were quite thrilling and it hurts me badly that I can’t recover them. For some, I do remember the plots but not the name nor the author. Really tired of beating myself over it. Moving on, I did have a lot of DNF’s, but the ones documented are those with significant progress.
There are a lot of faves I have within this pile. Not sure I can get through all of them. I don’t think I can get over, ‘The Woman in the Window’. I felt practically fooled. But in a good way. I mean, I did consider myself a baddie after foreshadowing some real twisty endings in two of Dan Brown’s novel. Yeah, I’m a Brownnoser. But A.J Finn beat me up in some way, not entirely, might I proudly add.
I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice a whole lot. Elizabeth really did justice to Mr Darcy’s character and manners. I can’t count how many times I re-read this book.
Last year, I built a new fascination with reading poetry. There’s something quite magical and peaceful about, especially something you can relate to. I would gladly recommend this two books. They’re constant re-reads in my shelf. ‘She felt like feeling nothing by r.h Sia (Poetry) & Sea of Strangers by Lang Leav (Poetry)
I can comfortably classify ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ as a comedy. It was hilarious and refreshing. Recently found out, there was a movie about it.
‘Flowers for Algernon’ by Daniel Keyes got me very emotional. I wrote a review about it but can’t fathom how it disappeared.
Joslyn Chase’s novel ‘What Leads a Man to Murder’, a collection of short stories was thoroughly fascinating and quite down-to-earth to understand. Would also totally recommend ‘Nocturne in Ashes’, wouldn’t say peep about it. You need to read it for yourself. And you’re welcome in advance.
Last but not the least. The Atlantis Gene by A.G Riddle and The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. I have never read anything like this two books. Never. Gripping. Thrilling, Psychotic. Mysterious. That’s all I can sputter for now.
These aren’t all my faves, they’re just a few I can briefly expound on but had quite an impact on me. If you have read of any of these books and they made it to the shelf of top faves. Do let me know in the comments.
As you might have possibly calculated, I didn’t reach my target of a hundred books. From the count of the listed books, a little above fifty. Which I guess should be more but let’s go with the number. That would be all for now.
Have a fun week.
