Hi guys!

If you’re a 90s kid, you’ll know that before binge watching Netflix became a trend, binge reading was what we called cool. So today I thought of sharing my top 5 book series that you’d love to binge read.

1. The Fifty Shades Trilogy – EL James

This erotica series has 3 Books – Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed.

It is the love story of Christian Grey and a young college girl Anastasia Steele. Add to the love story lots of sex, BDSM, heightened romance, and of course emotions. The trilogy took the world by storm, so if you’re looking for an erotica read, then this is the series you can start with.

2. Summer Series – Jenny Han

From the bestselling author of ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’, comes a trilogy that’ll remind you of summers at the beach house, prom nights, and first love.

The series has 3 books – The Summer I Turned Pretty, It’s not Summer Without You, and We’ll Always Have Summer.

This was one of my best reads in 2016. It has the perfect mix of emotions and romance, just what a YA book needs. It depicts a constant tussle between the head and the heart, the friendship between the two boys and Belly, and their chemistry gives you a fuzzy feeling.

3. Shiva Trilogy – Amish Tripathi

If you want to start reading mythology and are confused where to start, the Shiva Trilogy can give you a great push. The 3 books in the Series are – The Immortals of Meluha, The Secret of The Nagas, and The Oath of Wayuputras.

Har Har Mahadev!!

It is fast paced so you can enjoy it like a thriller. But the elements of mythology and history give it an edge. It teaches about Karma, Lord Shiva and his beliefs and how he transforms the world one deed at a time. Surely worth a read!

4. Millennium Trilogy – Steig Larsson

Have to admit, this is my favorite in the lot. It is based on Swedish crime novels and has 3 books in the series – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest. Get this series and your long weekend reading is sorted.

It is a story based on Lisbeth Salander, a woman with photographic memory but poor social skills, and Mikael Blomkvist, an investigative journalist. There’s bloodshed, thrill, mystery, and unsolved crime situations.

After the death of Stieg Larsson, the fourth book in the series – The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz was released last year. It is said that the fifth installment of the series The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye is set to release in September 2017.

5. If I Stay – Gayle Forman

This is a 2 book series – If I Stay and Where She Went.

It is a heartwarming and emotional series talking about family ties, choices we have to make in life, and the power of love. Gayle beautifully ties human relations in the thread of love. While the first book showcases the struggles and sorrows, the second book talks about triumph.

Let me know how many have you ticked off from the list. Also if you’ve seen their movie adaptations, were they any good?

Bye! Come back soon.

5 YA books you should add to your reading list – Part II

Hello lovelies!

I am all happy and charged up to be writing the part II of the YA books series. Picked out some happy and dreamy YAs that’ll strike a chord and leave a part of them in your heart.

So many books, so little time.

Just in case you haven’t read part I, here it is.

  1. Our Chemical Hearts (Krystal Sutherland)

This was the best YA I read in 2016! It is the perfect amalgamation of John Green and Rainbow Rowell. Feels on fleek, I say!!

The chemical reaction, or love as they call it between the two main lead characters is heartwarming. Henry and Grace are worlds apart, yet find solace in each other. Happy, sad, emotional, and love struck, you’ll feel it all while reading this delectable story.

2. Room (Emma Donoghue)

Room is a rather bold and strong YA. The book highlights the struggles Ma and Jack go through when they are held captive in an 11X11 room.

Room
Scared is what you’re feeling. Brave is what you’re doing.

Although the underlying feel of the book is trauma, abuse, and sadness, there is a positivity that radiates. Motherly love overpowers and makes us believe that moms are the real superheroes.

The booknerd in you will be happy to see the movie adaptation. It is phenomenal.

3. The Fault in Our Stars (John Green)

When I was making a list of YAs read, TFIOS was at the top. This is Hazel’s story of battling for life, survival, and love. This is also the story of Augustus being lover boy and bff we all need in our life.

Heart wrenching, tragic, yet full of life, you cannot not love The Fault in Our Stars.

PS – The movie is pretty good too. But the book certainly has more depth.

4. We Were Liars (E. Lockhart)

We Were Liars is a modern take on suspense novels. If you’re bored of all those mushy YAs and are looking for something light yet engaging, then this is what you should be reading.

And remember when someone asks how it ends. Just LIE.

5. Ketchup Clouds (Annabel Pitcher)

A simple story told in a superbly effective manner, that’s Ketchup Clouds. Feels are on point. It has grief, sorrow, and misery, yet I’ll call it a rather happy read.

Ketchup Clouds
Sometimes there are good reasons to do bad things.

It’s about a fifteen year old girl, Zoe and her secret. She finds a way to share it with a criminal on death row, and shares her tale of love and betrayal. It is witty and the bouts of humor are more than welcoming!
