My TBR list always remains long. I just keep on adding more books to it. Is that the case with you, too? If I get to know about a book which I think might be an interesting read, I cannot help adding it to the already long list!
Since bringing to you my whole list will probably consume all of our years (because why not be dramatic?!), I am bringing to you the ones which I HAVE to read no matter what!
If any of these books are in your list, too or if you’ve already read them, do let me know in the comments section below!
1. The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton:
I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since it got published. The book came out last month and I’ve heard so many things about it since then! The story revolves around this world of Orléans where Belles are found. Belles basically ‘control’ beauty and in this world of Belles, beauty is treated as a commodity. All people in the Orléans are born grey and supposedly ‘not beautiful’. They need the Belles to transform them and make them beautiful. The story follows Camellia Beauregard who specifically wants to be chosen by the Queen of Orléans. The book follows her next actions and her realizations. Doesn’t it sound great? I so want to read this one just to know how ‘beauty’ is interpreted and what message is brought forward.
P.s.: Don’t you just love the cover?! I do!
2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak:
The Book Thief is a great historical fiction. This book has inspired and changed many lives, so I’ve heard. The book talks about the dreadful times of World War II. It is set in Germany and we get to know the story of Liesel narrated by Death. Liesel steals books and narrates stories in order to survive and help her family sustain. I do not really know any more about this book but, I am wanting to read this one as the story seems to be quite absorbing. Also, because I haven’t read many historical fictions.
3. Mr. Darcy’s Diary by Amanda Grange:
Being crazy for Pride And Prejudice, I am so desirous of delving into this book! Mr. Darcy’s Diary is a retelling of Pride And Prejudice told through the perspectives of Mr. Darcy (SURPRISE!). And that’s literally all I know about this book. Anyways, for those who don’t know, Mr. Darcy is one of the main characters in Pride And Prejudice By Jane Austen- a character I like a lot. Knowing his perspectives towards the different situations and all the other people would be absolutely amazing (at least, I hope so!).
4. The Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling:
While many of you have probably read this book, I have not. I finished The Harry Potter series in February and now, am planning to pick up the Hogwarts Library. I am most excited for The Tales Of Beedle The Bard. Goodness! Just thinking about it excites me so much! It would be so fantastic to read the childhood tales of the wizarding world!
5. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens:
I already own this classic. I started reading it but, had to drop it for some reason. I remember enjoying it till the pages I read and am thinking of getting to it again! The book follows the story of Pip who is exposed to the dangerous work of moulding and manufacturing. Pip dreams of becoming a gentleman someday and being seen as a respectable person in the society. This book deals with crime, revenge, guilt, and more. Being Charles Dickens’ one of the most famous works, this novel is surely a gripping one and I want to read it, soon!
