When I opened my Goodreads to start making this list, I was quite surprised to find that most of these are books I’ve read a long time ago. That also means I don’t remember much about them and the reasons for my ratings. However, it’s still a fun list and I want to share it with you all.
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
I remember reading this one and Fountainhead while I was still in college and seemed quite intrigued by some of the author’s views. However, I have grown up and got to know more about her philosophy and that might be another reason why I spectacularly failed when I tried to reread this one last year.
Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
Another book that I read during one summer in college and even though I was fascinated by the story, it was still quite exhausting and took me almost a month to finish.
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
I don’t think I knew much about the legend of King Arthur when I read this one, and that’s why I was not very impressed or maybe just got bored. As it happens, this is just another in the long list of classics that I’ve given 3 stars.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling
I’m so glad this is the HP book that made it to the list because it’s my absolute favorite of the series. This book gave us our favorite villain Umbridge but it also gave us the wonderful Dumbledore’s Army. It’s probably the book I’ve reread the most, alongwith Philosopher’s Stone.
Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
Another series I don’t remember much about except the fact that I really enjoyed it a lot. And it will always be special because the second book in the series, Eldest is one of the first books I ever bought with my first earnings.
Temple by Matthew Reilly
Despite being a huge fan of Reilly’s Scarecrow series as well as the Jack West Jr series, this standalone is definitely one of my favorites. It has a great mix of history and adventure and I had a lot of fun reading it.
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Though I might not reread this series anytime again, I enjoyed it a lot at the time and this book is my second favorite in the series after Eclipse.
Bloodline by James Rollins
Sigma Force series is always so much fun to read and I love how the author incorporates a lot of action with technology as well as history.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
Though this book was a letdown after the amazing sequel that was ACOMAF, it was still a hopeful ending to the trilogy and I really enjoyed the beginning of the book a lot more than the end. You can checkout my full review here.
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
The book that put me through an emotional wringer and broke my heart with that colossal cliffhanger. December is still too far away…!!!! Do checkout my review for this amazing book by clicking here.
