Hello and welcome to my blog, so its already July and we have come through six months of this year. In terms of reading, this year is going great for me as I have read many great books. Also the reason why I call this as a great reading year because I have read books out of my comfort zone.
So, today I have decided to share top five books that I have read this year with you guys. So without delaying just dive right into the list.
- The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy:
“Alia and her brother Miles, after the death of her mother moves to the town of Sterling and soon realizes there is something strange about the town.
What is the mystery of this town and how all the events going on and are connected to Aila and Miles?”
This was truly a unique book I have read in so many years, and it was the book I literally completed in one sitting. If you are looking for fast paced and intriguing suspense do pick this one.
2. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman:
“Under the streets of London, there is one more London which is far more dark and dangerous. It is a place where magic exists and monsters lives, it is a place where people fall through cracks on upper London. Richard our protagonist, unknowingly becomes part of London below and how it changes his life “
This book was my first Gaiman book and I am so glad I picked this book, this is proof of how unique a human imagination can be. This dark urban fantasy but absolutely beautiful. So if you want to read something crazy, this is the right pick for you.
3. The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell:
“ A story of time travel and a story which moves back and forth in modern day New York and 1900s New York.”
This is an absolutely amazing book which have everything in it like magic, time-travel, gangs of 1900, politics, conspiracy and betrayal. It is a book which involves a lot of magic but not Harry Potter kind of but still if you are looking to read amazing book just pick this one.
4. The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw:
“In a small town of Sparrow, around 200 years ago three sisters were drowned in sea accused of witchcraft and seducing men of town, but they return every summer to take their revenge from this town.”
An original story and interesting premise, I picked this book just by reading its blurb, I must say this was a satisfying read, there was some eerie and creepy moments in book that would easily make you uncomfortable. I loved this book and I recommend this book to everyone who loved reading creepy story line.
5. My Sister’s Bones by Nuala Ellwood;
“ Kate Rafter, has witnessed horrible childhood and is compelled to return to her home town which she left long back and never came. This time when she is back she realizes there is someone who needs her help but she is not sure if she is hallucinating these events or if they are happening for real”
If you guys are fan of nail biting thriller then this is just a book for you. A book that will out smart your wits and keep you thinking entire time. If you are fan of books like “Girl on the Train” and “Gone Girl” than this should be your next pick.
