2015- In Books (Thanks Goodreads for keeping the tracks )

 

Goodreads Year in books

Goodreads is definitely one of my favorite website. I visit there everyday, to view what other readers are reading and get inspired to read more. This year, I managed to read 47 so far ( It will be 48 before the year officially ends), and I credit goodreads from where I discovered most of the tittles and filled by To-be-Read list.

 

Here are the books that I have read in 2015 ( Screen short from the goodreads report )

2015 books 1

Books without cover on the above picture
  1. Tamarind History by Sundara Ramaswamy
  2. Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino

Favorite reading moments of 2015

  1. Discovering that Gabriel Garcia Marquez is also an excellent short story writer (Do read his Strange Pilgrims to experience the magic of his short-story writing)
  2. Finally completing Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell after 5 months. Just like well aged whiskey, this book is suggested to enjoy in small pegs.
  3. Speaking of small pegs, Invisible cities by Italo Calvino is a book that you can read a page a day before you sleep. You will be smiling in your dreams, I can assure.
  4. Can the greatest authors of the genre  collaborate together and create a masterpiece? The answer is Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
  5.  Finally read the books by Hakuri Murakami and understood why his fans are like his fans (I read 3 books by him this year- none before. So, am I in that club already ? )
  6. Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes proved that even tragic memoir can be a fun read too.
  7. The moment when I started reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. It is my favorite book of the year.
  8. Naseeruddin Shah‘s candid memoir took me to 70s of film industry and it is the best book from Bollywood by far.

Do share your favorite 2015 reading moments and books. I will love to read your comments. And Merry Christmas everyone.

    You can totally join the Murakami fan club now 🙂 What did you think of ‘A Brief History of Seven Killings’? It’s on my ‘To Read’ list for 2016.
