 Hello there!

Today's post is a  Thursday thirteen as it's been a while since I did this list. I keep reading and my list of books read grows and grows. Therefore it is only natural that my favourites change over time as I discover new books and new authors.

Here is my list of top 13 books, ( in no particular order):

 1. Time Traveller's Wife--  Audrey Niffeneger

2. 10 Minutes 38 seconds in This Strange World --Elif Shafak

3. Lessons in Chemistry--Bonnie Garmus

4. People on Platform 5--Clare Pooley

5. Flatshare-- Beth O leary

6. The Off Limits Rule --Sarah Adams

7. Carrie Soto is back--Taylor Jenkin Reids

8. Goodby Things--Fumio Sasaki

9. Looking Inward --Swami Purnachaitanya

10. Collected stories of Roald Dahl

11. All books by Michael Morpurgo

12. Beneath a Scarlet Sky--Mark Sullivan

13.Aristotle and Dantes discover the secrets of the Universe --Benjamin Alire Saenz

I hope you discovered at least a few new books in this list. Enjoy!

More tomorrow.



  1. I haven't read any of these! A few of my favorites are Balancing Heaven and Earth, Angela's Ashes and Bones of the Master.

  2. I have read #1 and #13. I have heard of Taylor Jenkins Reid, didn't she do Daisy Jones and the 6?

  3. Very interesting list but I have read only one book from this list: The Flatshare (which I loved). I tried to read Time Traveller's Wife many years ago but (at that time) I couldn't get hold of the format. Maybe, I can try again. People on Platform 5 sounds intriguing.

    And next week, I'm going to do Thursday Thirteen. :)
