Hello readers and welcome to my blog. Today I am here with three book recommendations which were definitely great reads for me I want my fellow readers to put their hands on .
So recommendations here will be random, irrespective of genre and category. So without further a do let’s jump into my book recommendations for you guys.
- Dash & Lily’s Book of Dare by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan:
Around four years back I was looking for the list of books that are light and have Christmas vibes in it, it was then I stumbled upon this book.
“I’ve left some clues for you.
If you want them, turn the page.
If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.”
Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?
So if you guys are looking for some reckless romance then this book is for you and best part is it is not cliched young contemporary novel.
2. Wild: Lost to Found on Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed:
Are you lost? or out of motivation or difficult times in life has destroyed you? You think you have ruined everything and irreversible damage has been done?
If yes, then this is the “The” book for you, even if not still this was such a thrilling read that I started feeling adrenaline rush.
Book is based on real events and is success story of a woman who destroyed her life but that was not it, she bounced back and decided to make her life good.
At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State — and she would do it alone.
Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
No matter who you are, you should definitely pick this book. Readers who loved Eat, Pray, Love…this is just the right book for you.
