Books you just HAVE to read :D

Okay so this is a random post about a few books i think everyone should read...i used to be a unstoppable bookoholic reader at one time..but somewhat i've lost touch now ..maybe its because of the excessive academic books i read recently or just having no time ( i know its not an excuse ) ..well here are some of my most favourite books you don't want to miss :D

Where Rainbows End !

Just awesome :D This book is my most favorite ever :D Written by cecelia ahern of ps : i love you fame ..its a book that leaves you with an afterglow and a big smile on your face ...its about love and friendship and how life is never too short for people who need to find a way to each other :D its not a normal book, its in the form of letters and emails that the protagonists send to each other but still not once do you feel like there is something missing ...this is a book i've read 3 times :

The Alchemist 

I'm not very fond of Paulo Coelho's writing but this book is something you cannot miss..there is so much spoken about this book and so many copies sold obviously there is something about it ..its translated in 13 languages wow right?
  This book is deep in so many ways and there is just so much to learn from it feel for the Santiago ( the protagonist ) and you actually live the search for treasure with him. This book is about believing in your dreams and fighting and struggling for everything you want ...its about learning your lessons and rising high and yet not forgetting where you came from.
If you're really losing hope about anything in 
your life ever this is just the book you want to read ..its BEAUTIFUL

Tuesdays With Morrie

This book was a reading assignment i got in school.. the whole thing about reading assignment is that the book usually doesnt turn out to be that great but its for the marks that you read it anyway ..and since then i have read this book 5 imes :) enough said ?

 This book is a real story written by mitch albom about his proffessor morrie schwartz is a beautiful account of morrie's  last few days in the world ...he was a teacher till the end :) this book is not for someone whose looking for light reading ...its a very touching and sometimes truthfully sad  ...but everytime i read it i learn something new :)

Who will cry when you die ?

Ok i'm not such a big fan of self help books normally ...but this book is an exception..but before i say what the book is about i want to say something about the author ..robin sharma is not a good writer from his books what i've observed is that he's a good reader .yes ..he's a very good and observant reader and his books are only compilations of the various things he learns from the many books he reads and the people he meets ..well that takes talent too ofcourse :)

 This book is a quick read ..100 small things that will make your life worthwhile and actually enjoyable ...its about enjoying the simple pleasures and making your life count :D

The Namesake 

Ok..confession ! i saw the movie before i read the book ..and i loved the movie so much that i decided to read the book ...superb direction and awesome cinematography ..oh wait this is about the book :P yes the book lives up to the movie ( yes thats the first time you hear it ) ..the movie is awesome ...but the book is equally good ...its about the conflict between cultures and the choices we make to fit in ..very well written ( please watch the movie too :P ) hats off to jhumpa lahiri :D                                                                                                    

 The Time Traveler's Wife 

 Again the movie is awesome :D :P

The book is a perfect blend of romance , fiction and drama :D It's not a book you'll remember forever but its surely a book you can't put down ...i kinda missed the book when it was over .

 The basic story is about a man who can't control when and how he travels to different times in his life and how his wife deals with his absences and his strange "problem" ..a very well written book :)

There are so many more :O damn..but i know people don't want to read my super long posts so maybe i'll use a list :P
