My favorite place in the entire planet would be a book shop. Even if I’m not buying anything, I love to roam inside each and every corner. I love the smell of new books and it’s always addicting.
As a part of my new year resolution, I’m not buying any new books this year. Because I have collected enough books last year I don’t have much space to store it. It’s always hard to throw away books. I won’t do that except donating books.
Among my entire book collection, there are few books that will always be so close to my heart. Because it’s my favorite, that doesn’t mean it has to be everyone’s favorite. Each and every one in this planet has their own interests and likes and I respect that.
White tiger by Aravind Adiga. I was so hesitant to read this book. When I started it, it was finished unknowingly. It was first published in 2008 and won the 40th Man Booker Prize in the same year.
And there were none by Agatha Christie. It’s a mystery novel. While reading this I felt like I was in the story. I was with the characters. I was terrified when I read the climax. It’s such a great book and considered as one of her masterpiece work.
M.T Vasudevan Nair is one of my favorite novelists. He is a prolific and versatile writer in modern Malayalam literature. Thanks to my mother who had a huge collection of his writings. Few of my favorites are Nalukettu, Asuravithu and Iruttinte Athmavu.
S.K Pottekadu(S. K. Pottekkatt, is a famous Malayalam writer from Kerala state, South India), the man who gave me the passion for traveling. I have traveled to Finland many times through his book(Paathira Sooryante Naatil). I have been to Bali many times through his book(Balidweep), it’s beautiful 🙂
PS- If I’m going to explain all of my favorite books and authors, this will be a never ending blog. So it’s better to end before getting bored.
