They enroach our lives innocuously, build a mansion ingeniously and stay in our hearts impregnably. They are those little elves who swirl their magic wand once and we humans are left gasping for more. That is the aura of books. You touch them twice and they’ll make you prone to some serious disorders, like insomnia. Such potency, I tell you.
I have voraciously gorged on 34 novels as a part of the Brunch Book Challenge (as I mentioned in my previous post). Amongst them, there have been several books which made me learn a lot through one or the other character, the setting and the descriptive narration. Though it is not easy to pick one as the best read, but there have been 5 books which I have enjoyed thoroughly. If you’re reading this post and haven’t read the following books, I’ll advise your lazy ass to get up, visit a bookstore and immediately add them to your TBR list.
In chronological order, they are:
1. The Godfather – Mario Puzo
2. To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee.
3. How to be a Woman – Caitlin Moran.
4. The Fountainhead – Ayn Rand.
5. Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn.
