TOP 10 MUST READS FROM 2015

Source : weheartit

January is a month of reminiscing. It’s about thinking about all that happened in the previous year, it’s the month we take to adapt to the new date we would have to write for a whole another year, it’s basically a month where we just summarise all we did in the past year, and possibly move on.

From the psychological thriller ‘The Girl On The Train’ to a lovely Young-Adult ‘All The Bright Places’, 2015 has been a great year for books as well as book lovers all over the world. A lot of books turned into movies, and a lot of people took to serious reading!

Here’s to a little flashback :


1. ‘GO SET A WATCHMAN’
by Harper Lee
Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
GO SET A WATCHMAN
This Pulitzer Prize winning author bounced back with a much-anticipated sequel set twenty years ahead to ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, which is Harper Lee’s only other published novel. This book revolves around a complex relationship between a father, Atticus and his daughter, Jean Louise “Scout” Finch. She is to discover the dark truths about her family and her childhood town. She must re-evaluate her life and sort out her emotions and memories in order to make peace with her past in order to move forward with her life. If you have read ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, this is the book you would not want to miss.

2. ‘THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN’
by Paula Hawkins
The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins
THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN
The story starts which Rachel, a hopeless alcoholic who, to conceal her unemployment from her roommate, rides the train to London every day, watching the same people and places over and over, until one day she sees something which changes her whole life, and the life of others. As you dive more into this book it makes you realise how nobody can be trusted. If you liked ‘Gone Girl’ chances are you will love this one too. Paula Hawkins is a brilliant writer, and just when you come to a conclusion, this book throws you away on a different path altogether.


3. ‘ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES’
by Jennifer Niven
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES
Theodore and Violet are two teenagers, who desperately want to escape from their small Indiana town. Theodore constantly fantasizes about dying, but is never able to put his plans to fruition whereas Violet wants to move away and escape the memories of her sister’s death. When the two of them accidentally meet at the bell tower of school, it’s unclear who saves whom.

This is Jennifer Niven’s first young adult work.



4. ‘CARRY ON’
by Rainbow Rowell
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
CARRY ON

This book is an extended version of the meta-fanfiction written by Cath in another Rainbow Rowell’s book, ‘Fangirl’, but written from the author herself’s point of view. Two adorable, yet monstrous characters Simon and Baz studying in Watford School of Magicks, continue to have a love-hate relationship. Carry On is known to be just as romantic as other novels published by the author, but more thrilling and sexy!

5. ‘BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME’
by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Between the World And Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME
This #1 New York Times Bestseller, is a letter from Ta-Nehisi Coates to his 14-year-old son about what it means in to be black in United States today. Based on his own experiences, and the hard-hitting reality about how the prejudices are never going to change, the author presents this very situation with great severity. This book is heart-breaking, bleak, haunting, and hopeful all at once, but if I had to choose one word to describe it, I would say ‘important’.

6. ‘TWO YEARS EIGHT MONTHS AND TWENTY-EIGHT NIGHTS: A NOVEL’
by Salman Rushdie
Two Years Eight Months Twenty Nights by Salman Rushdie
TWO YEARS EIGHT MONTHS AND
TWENTY EIGHT NIGHTS: A NOVEL
After a supernatural storm strikes New York City, the strangeness begins. Every day citizens wake up to find that they possess some supernatural powers; a gardener’s feet refuse to touch the ground, a powerful jinn wreaks havoc all over the world, a baby identifies corruption with her mere presence. The novel stays connected to the “real life” enough to turn your thoughts towards the real issues in life. A story of magic yet as realistic as possible by one of the best storytellers of our time.

7. ‘CAREER OF EVIL’ 
by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a. J.K. Rowling)
Career Of Evil by Robert Galbraith
CAREER OF EVIL
This book starts with a mysterious package delivered to Robin Ellacot (Strike’ assistant), which contains a woman’s severed leg. Cormoran, less surprised but equally alarmed dives into his past to find four people who could be easily responsible for this. Unsatisfied by the lead taken by police, Strike and robin take the matter into their own hands only to find themselves surrounded by unspeakable monstrosity. This is third book in the Cormoran Strike series, preceded by ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ and ‘The Silkworm’.

8. ‘FATES AND FURIES’
by Lauren Groff
Fates And Furies by Lauren Groff
FATES AND FURIES
‘Fates and Furies’ makes us realise how there are two sides to every story. This books tells a story of a successful marriage in disguise from two point of views, one of the husband and the other of the wife, and those two views are insanely un-identical. Whatever conception you form about this novel, I’m sure you wouldn’t be able to anticipate whatever is in it. This is Groff’s third novel and just as unusual as the rest.

9. ‘PURITY’
by Jonathan Franzen
Purity by Jonathan Franzen
PURITY

A college graduate Pip Tyler, knows nothing about her family or past. She is saddled with college debt, bestowed with sharp intelligence and ha a hazardous relationship with her mother, who named her Purity. When she goes looking for her father and her real identity into the jungles of Bolivia, she is sucked into a world from there is no return.

10. ‘I WAS HERE’
by Gayle Forman
I WAS HERE BY GAYLE FORMAN
I WAS HERE
When her best friend commits suicide, Cody is shocked and devastated. They has been best friends since forever, then how could she have not seen it coming? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college to pick up the belongings she left behind, she discovered that there was lot that Meg never told her, about the sort of people Cody would never have met in her small town in Washington. A powerful story about friendship, loss, guilt, grief and learning to move on. If you love Young-Adult, this ought to be on your shelf.

These books are the ultimate must-reads and if you still haven't read them, then hurry before some of them turn into movies and maybe spoil the fun for you!

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
