I would love to know.

I have read "When breath becomes Air" but I thought that you could mention "Tuesdays with Morrie".ReplyDelete
These are my lesser known favourites 😉Delete
The only one I've read on the list is When Brath Becomes Air. I liked it but liked the author's second husband's wife's book The Bright Hour even more.ReplyDelete
Will look out for bright hour. Thanks for the recommendation!Delete
Very interesting list. I have read Every seventh wave by Daniel Glattauer (and Love Virtually, of course). Loved it! One of my favourites. I tried to read The Guernsey Literary and Potato peel pie society but could not finish. I watched the movie (and liked it). I haveReplyDelete
Stationery shop of Tehran by Marjan Kamali, haven't read because I really, really want to read it but saving it ti read 'aaram se'. 😊 Will read it soon. Time Traveller’s wife by Audrey Niffeneger is on my TBR list.
Ah !! I didn’t like the movie ! I kept comparing it to the book. I liked the book because it’s an epistolary and it all comes together so beautifully later on. Brilliant writing.Delete
I've read the Guernsey book. I want to read Maus but there's a huge wait list on that one at my library, so it will be a while. That's what happens when a book gets banned. Everyone wants to read it!ReplyDelete
Oh ! I had no idea it was banned !Delete
In India 🇮🇳 it’s freely available. It’s a brilliant book, I think the only graphic novel to win a Pulitzer. But I felt sad for days altogether and it disturbed me . Still I loved it.
I haven't read any of these, but I'd like to check out a few of them. Great list!ReplyDelete
Do read them. They are all great books.Delete
Goat Days by Benyamin is my favorite too!! Everything protagonist had to go through to escape shepherd life haunted me for days.ReplyDelete
Yes. I have been in the same panel with Benyamin at a lit fest and he is such a humble man. He is so impressive.Delete
Hi, I have read The Stationery Shop of Tehran. It's beautifully written. Time travellers is in my TBR. One of my favourites of your books is The Hundred little flames and the tea for two and a piece of cake. These are the top that liked most. Other are beautiful told stories too.:)ReplyDelete
Thank you so much ❤️ Feels nice to be a part of someone’s fav book list ! 🤗Delete
Maharani by BondReplyDelete
I read When breath becomes air. Two years and i still feel the chill and emotions.ReplyDelete
Yes it’s such a deeply moving bookDelete
Yes it is. 😊Delete
It’s so well written . Isn’t it ?ReplyDelete
Great selections as always.I found "The time travellers wife" particularly interesting.Also the book "Her Fearful Symetarry" by the same author is pretty engaging.
Always wonderful to hear your book reviews on Instagram.
Lots of Love,Respect & Devotion to you
Hello Preeti, hope you are well and I simply love this list of favorites Thursday 13, my favs and read among your list are Ghachar Ghochar, when breath becomes air and many lives many masters. I’d like to blog about the same too, I think I’ll do it right away. Cya. Thankyou once again for your inspiration as always, much love to u.ReplyDelete
Hi Preeti. Wow! What a wonderful list of books. I have not read any of them, but will make a note of the titles. I will definitely recommend this list to my Mom. For the past 4 months, she has been reading books on Kindle and has got hooked. I think she reads 3 to 4 books in a week. As far as my favorite books go, I would have to say that most of them are the ones written by you! As a child, my favorite books were those written by Judy Blume, Francine Pascal, Ann M. Martin and Beverly Clearly. Was an avid reader as a child and hope to continue for years to come. 📚ReplyDelete
