5 must read Books along with Mini Reviews (Part 1)

Some books hold a special place in your heart. These 5 books are my all-time favorite. I recommend it to every one of you to read them at least once in your lifetime. I am sharing my reviews along with the recommendations to help you select the ones which resonate with you. Also, all of these are beginner-friendly books, so just pick them up.



A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaleid Hosseini


It is a heartbreaking, emotional, and powerful novel. The plot is set in Afghanistan beginning from Soviet takeover to post Taliban Control. It is a story about two strong women Mariam and Laila. Both of them struggled, fought against all odds, facing domestic violence and abuse, but stood out as a hero. They came out with more strength and courage. The narration is pure gold, depicting every phase of life so wonderfully. This is a book that can make you cry but a must-read for everyone.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho


This book is a masterpiece by Paulo Coelho. It's about your dreams you desire to be true. How the entire universe helps you in achieving your dreams once you are completely determined to follow it. It is a kind of self-help book that has been described through a very beautiful story of Santiago who follows what he dreamt, the signals he is getting, the visions appearing to him with all his heart. Few inspiring quote from the book which I absolutely love:


•“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.”


•"It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting."


•“Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”

Angels and Demons by Dan Brown


Angels and Demons is part 1 of the Robert Langdon series but all of them are not related to each other. I can't explain how much I like this book. It's filled with Sci-fi mystery, thriller, and a lot of suspense. It's a bit long story, every minute detail has been put down in this book. It has a very unpredictable plot, you can't even think of what is going to happen next. I love how unexceptional twists and turns are added. This book is a true gem. A must must-read for those who love reading Sci-fi thrillers.

The Power of Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy


Did you know how a simple practice of prayer can help you reach the goals you aim for? Yes, this is true. The book explains how affirmations and manifestations can be done to get your desired life. It can be applied in every aspect of your life like health, building relations, wealth, career, mental state. The book is filled with examples that motivate me to believe in this practice. Book says "Affirm the good, bad will vanish". I truly believe this happens and the book helped me also to work upon the things I desired. There is a post I wrote on my Instagram page also about why you should read this book.
