The Holiday Home was the first book that I read after my university ended. I was already in the holiday mood and was craving for a book that will transport me into a beautiful place. The Holiday Home did its job with its beautiful description of the beach and a family that comes together to spend their holiday at the Atlantic House that is situated by the sea. You can read more about the book in my detailed review here.
I loved this novel so much that I have bought another of Fern Britton’s novel to be read in 2018.
With the amount of fame this book got I don’t think it needs much of an introduction. But still for those of you who are yet to read the book let me just give you a brief outline about this novel. A young English woman living in a small town, trying hard to earn money to make the ends meet for her family is hired at a huge mansion as a caretaker for a young paralysed man. While developing a close bond with this man she discovers his wish to end his life and she soon becomes determined to make him love his life just as he did before the car accident.
Me Before You has a second book with the name of After You. Its third book is also out – Still Me which I am looking forward to read in the coming year.
I read Tight Rope during Ramadan and it was another book that caught my attention because of a different story line. The author sheds light upon the lives of Americans who are becoming the victims of racism on a regular basis. It just doesn’t cover Muslims, but Black Americans, Hispanics and anyone that does not shares the same complexion as the Americans. Read more about the story here.
Another book that I read in Ramadan and loved every bit of the information provided in it. Mufti Taqi Usmani has written on point in this concise book and I would consider it an eye opener for the modern times. It will really help to deal with the misconceptions that the West has formed regarding Islam which is now influencing the minds of the Muslim youth. Read more details about this book here.
Not that I already know of, but this book has in depth information about the importance of parents in Islam. The glossy pages inside the book are packed with colourful pages which make it a lot more interesting to read. I would say this is an ideal gift for the Muslim youth.
Since I had picked this book from a school library I had to return it back before I could finish the book. But whatever I read were beautiful compilations of what it means to show gratitude to Allah and remain patient in times of difficulty. I will make sure I purchase this book for my mini library because it is worth keeping for all times to come.
I read this book again after 3 years and it still gave me the same feelings that it did the first time. The novel revolves around a friend who is trying to honour the last wish of her best friend who died in a car accident and had all his organs donated. Read more details about its story here. You are going to love this one just as I did.
This is a light inspirational novel which is packed with scenes that will bring you tears of joy and sadness all at the same time. If you are at a stage in your life where you are planning to start anew then you ought to give this novel a read. Read more details about this novel here.
I am currently reading this so the complete review will come as soon as I finish with it. Even though I am reading this book in 2017, I had read it back in 2011 and I would say it was a life changing book. This book had made me respect my body, love it the way it already is and amend my lifestyle in a way that it would benefit my body to become leaner and fitter. I went through similar feelings as I started reading this book again this month so I have to say it made the remaining of my 2017.
These were the books that made my 2017 fantastic and awesome and at times bearable as well. :D Tell me about your favourite books of 2017.
