A single book is enough to make us forget about everything around us, to change our perception, to change our personality. Here are 5 books that proved to be a perfect blend of an author’s creative imagination. A person who favors the company of books to people is called a ‘Prin-tro-vert’ and these can easily turn you into one.
- Harry Potter Series
My personal favorite, HP series has won millions of hearts. A magical creation of JK Rowling, the series of seven books has already been captured in eight enthralling movies. The books account the journey of a young wizard who later fought one of the greatest dark wizards, ‘The-one-who-must-not-be-named’. The books will literally make you dream of the whole wizarding world. By the end of the books, you will be waiting impatiently to receive your own Hogwarts letter. If you haven’t yet experienced it, then you are missing out one of the most enchanting series in this world.
- A Song of Ice and Fire
Another fantasy series which was brought to life by George R. R. Martin. The series gives you a full experience of thrones, swords, dragons, and a big ice wall. The books are full of suspense, heart-throbbing moments, and loads of blood. The famous TV series, ‘Game of Thrones’ is based on this very book series with few changes coming back with its final season next year.
- To Kill a Mockingbird
Who doesn’t know about the famous Lee Harper and her equally famous book, ‘To kill a Mockingbird’? This classic novel, even though rich in humor, focuses on many serious issues like rape and racialism. It is considered to be a classic of modern American literature and continues to teach and inspire many.
- And the Mountains Echoed
A beautiful piece of work by Khaled Hosseini. If you choose to read this book, you are in for the biggest emotional ride of your life. Unlike the cliché love stories, the book teaches you the real meaning of relationships. A relationship formed by blood, a relationship between two siblings which was lost, found and then lost again. The book will make you cry, if nothing, it will surely leave you wanting to hug your siblings. The hardships of life and the search for finding something that is lost but not forgotten has been portrayed with the most beautiful words.
- Catch 22
This novel by Joseph Heller, the book is considered to be one of the best literary works of the twentieth century. It follows the life of a few army men who are doing everything in their power to go back home. A satirical novel, it will leave you wondering and enraptured.
These 5 books are the best in their own ways. They will make you laugh and even cry. Most importantly, they will force you to think. You will be waiting for your letter from Hogwarts and want to fight for the Iron Throne. You will want to live these books. Therefore, I warn you, open these books with caution. Because, once you start reading them, there is no way back.
