Let’s get started:
- Swear on this life by Renee Carlino
Have you ever read a book that made you feel so many things all at once and you felt like if you didn’t finish it till the end you’d explode? If yes, aren’t you dying to feel that way again? If no, read this book and you’ll know what I’m talking about. The experience of reading this book, it was beautiful, the way dying stars are beautiful.
- The Summer that Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel
I was an emotional wreck after finishing this book. A letter was written to the devil himself inviting him, and when Sal a young boy who believes himself to be the devil shows up, things start getting interesting. Raw emotions and the innocence, the harsh brutality of time, devil in the guise of humans and angel in the devil’s body. These elements differentiate this book from other books.
- This Savage song by Victoria Schwab
Terrific World building, insanely likable Characters, action-packed, creepy and thrilling scenes, magical Writing, plot twist and nicely wrapped up ending. The additional cliffhanger to make you want the next book. It’s Victoria Schwab we’re talking about here. Everything she writes is golden. In a post-apocalyptic world, sometimes the humans are the real monsters and there’s one monster who is more human than most. Plus, zero romance in this book.
- All the Ugly and Wonderful things by Bryn Greenwood
This is the kind of book not everyone would enjoy reading. But if you want to take a chance, you’ll have to know. This book is challenging. You are forced to challenge your own thoughts about things you’re pretty sure of. And it’s emotional, raw, kinda hurts you so much that the characters linger on your mind way after finishing the book. Review: All the Ugly and Wonderful Things
The Soft Target by Kalyan Nanda
The novel has an amazing plot that is written well. The story is connecting and the writing style is simple and commendable. The use of words is apt which intensifies the level of sarcasm and wit in the story line. It’s rare to find books that can actually be classified as serious literature and can be taught in an academic course. This is one such amazingly written book. Here’s the complete book review- The Soft Target: Book Review
- To Cancer, with Love By Neelam Kumar
The book is humorous. And that is not something you can say about books with Cancer in their Title and as its theme. What I loved about this book that it was witty and magical along with being motivational and inspiring. Along with being entertaining because of the author’s writing style, it also showed me how to live life fully. This was one life-changing book for me.

- When I Fell in love with life by Geetha Paniker
This was one emotional book. The book speaks, wonderfully about how a life should be seen. The author uses such beautiful and brave metaphors within the pages of this book. This book is a masterpiece, the one that needs to be consumed: to be digested. Read it when you’re low, and observe it doing miracles with your life. This book was captivating from the start and that is commendable. Here’s the book review- When I Fell in Love with Life, by Geetha Paniker
Let the Game Begin by Sandeep Sharma
Who thought that the boring game of Chess could have such a violent past and bloody consequences? It borders on the edges of Magical Realism. The story was, of course, interesting with such a strong plot but I’ll also have to say that the writing was smart and refined. The book had me intrigued from the start. And even though I figured out who the killer was, the book still managed to surprise me.
- It Ends with us By Colleen Hoover
What I loved about this book was the main theme of this book and how it captivated my attention and emotions. I just couldn’t stop reading. The writing. That’s always my favorite thing about this author. How amazingly she writes. This book is incredible. From “Naked Truths” to Ellen Diaries, it’s full of such honest moments and also Atlas who has become my favorite fictional character of the year. Book Review- It Ends With Us
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer
An Alice-in-wonderland retelling but with the Queen of hearts as the protagonist. The story was a little too fluffy and adorable for the most part but when it started getting darker, well that’s when I started liking it better. In the end, it left me wanting more. It’s a character-driven novel of a sort because there are many interesting characters that make this novel as wonderful as it is.
P.S. I’d love to hear your Top 10 books from 2016 list. Happy Reading!
