It’s no secret, The Pink Tarha ladies are bibliophiles and once we find time to read we can’t put books down until we’re done! One of my resolutions this year is to read at least five books in one month, which is really not that hard for an avid reader.So I made a list for each month and I’m going to share them with you! Here are five books for my fellow bookworms:
- Paper Towns by John Green (2008). Having finished the book, I would say that this is by far my favorite John Green book (yes, even after reading The Fault in Our Stars). It has the right mix of mystery, pace, twists and lovable characters with realistic dialogues. There were parts of the book that made me gasp, hoping that what I was reading wasn’t truly happening to the characters. Rated 4.07 out of 5 stars by goodreads.com.
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (2012). A mystery/suspense story of a man looking for his missing wife. Did he kill her or not? My interest was piqued when I read that the book was good enough to turn into a movie and knowing that the movie will probably never be as good as the book, I’ve decided to read it instead. Rated 3.93 out of 5 stars by goodreads.com.
- To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han (2014) Imagine writing secret love letters to all the boys you’ve ever loved with no intention of sending them out but by a twist of fate, they all get the letter all at once!? OMG. I just finished this book and it has that kilig factor that makes you root for the protagonist. Rated 4.06 out of 5 stars by goodreads.com.
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman (2009). Another book turned movie, this is a story of crossroads: of love and ambition, of life and death. Rated 3.99 out of 5 stars by goodreads.com.
- Are you there God, It’s me Margaret by Judy Blume (1970). Okay, so I know this book is really old but how can I resist a story of a young girl navigating puberty and her quest to understand God? The later release were adapted to modern times so that young readers can still relate. Also, the book is listed in Time Magazine’s Top 100 Fiction Books Written in English since 1923. Rated 3.87 out of 5 stars by goodreads.com.
Happy Reading, Riyadhizens! 🙂
