How is the week treating y’all? Good? Since my last post rereading, I had been thinking of writing a post on the many books I have read again. These are some of my favorite books I have reread!
5 Books On My Shelf that I have ReRead | Books I have reread
Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling
The number of hours and days I have wasted on this series is endless. So much that I could have easily come up with my own fictional series in that time. During its initial days, I had a good laugh every time someone went gaga over Harry Potter. And who knew later I would become obsessed with it? You can buy the entire book series here. If you gift this to any kid, he/she is surely gonna remember you lifelong! (I already know some of the kids that I want to gift this to for their birthdays). I’m forcing my friends to read this too. And if and when I meet someone who have already read Harry Potter, my voice becomes as shrill and high-pitched as Courtney Cox’s in Friends. I mean, who wouldn’t love an imaginary, non-existent world full of witchcraft, wizardry and magic?
Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
I am a huge fan of Dan Brown. He is the master of fiction + facts genre. Everybody has a talent and his is to tell stories from total facts, even just numbers some times. The first book by Dan Brown that I read was The Da Vinci Code when I was in 8th grade. And I did not understand a word of it! Man, that was intense. I fell in love the 2nd time I read it. But my all-time favorite books of his are Angels and Demons and Deception Point. The 2nd book I read was Angels and Demons and what a gripping adventure it was. It was as good as seeing an adventurous-thriller movie. He weaves the plot in such a way that the twists are not so obvious, a shocker at almost every curve, something that many plots fail to do so. I have reread Dan Brown’s books numerous times, on my weekends, travels, college vacations and pretty much whenever I was bored or had time to spare. In fact, I think I fell in love with fiction genre because of J.K.Rowling and Dan Brown
Deception Point by Dan Brown
Like I mentioned above, Deception Point is one the top books I have reread. If The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons relied heavily on religions, Deception Point greatly took science’s help to come up with a great stuck-to-the-edge-of-the-chair plot (The book begins with the new-found evidence for extraterrestrial life forms!). See, I had judged that Dan Brown would only rely on Robert Langdon to solve all his mysteries. But I was so wrong. If I had read this book without knowing the author’s name, I probably might not have been able to guess it was Dan Brown (I would have guessed, but wouldn’t have been sure for sure). It has similar kind of twists, turns and shockers as other books of Brown’s that will definitely make you fall off your chair out of curiosity! This is one of those books that you would finish within no time as you wouldn’t be able to handle all the mysteries. I am yet to read his The Lost Symbol and Inferno (and hence the reason to include in the reading challenge).
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie is one of the best-selling novelists of all times in the entire world (only outsold by Bible and Shakespeare!). She was the master at weaving murder plots (She was called the Queen of Crime). And Then There Were None was the first book of hers that I read. This didn’t have any protagonists, detectives, heroes saving the world to solve the crime. The plot is heavily influenced from a nursery rhyme (Yes, you read it right, a RHYME). Give this a read and you would thank me for introducing you to this novel (In case you still haven’t heard about this). And the book is small too, it’s hardly 200 pages. I will write a detailed review on all of the above books as soon as I can.
Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
A book about life, love and happiness, by Mitch Albom. The book that I have already ranted more about here. Since the time I read it (last year), I have already read this book around 3-4 times (I wanted to include a non-fiction book as well, in case you perceived me as some fictional character from another planet). This was one of the first non-fictional books I have reread. I loved everything about the book. It’s simple, easy to read, relatable and not too complex, which was my initial guess from the brief descriptions about the book everywhere. Read my review to know more about my views on the book. Tuesdays With Morrie is a wonderful book to read which tries to inculcate good values, opposes silly traditions/cultures and focuses more on happiness than anything.
