Books & more books !

I am a self-proclaimed book addict & I have no shame in shouting it at top of my voice. Nothing better than reading & getting lost in a different world.I remember watching my dad reading novels till late night & falling asleep. I guess I had caught on this habit very early in life. Now, I have stumbled across this crucial question – Which fiction author’s book/novel you like most? Why ?

Let’s turn back the time wheel & start from the beginning ūüôā

As a kid I used to read Twinkle comics, Champak & Nandan. We used to eagerly wait for the new editions & weekends were reserved for reading them. I gradually grew out of them.

One fine summer evening, I was introduced to the world of ‘Malory Towers’ by Enid Blyton. Next few months were spent searching for all the six books of the series. ¬†I used to dream about going to such school. The elaborate description of the towers & the school campus. They are still alive in memories. It was followed by the craze for ‘Famous Five’ & ‘Secret Seven’ by the same author.

I moved on and entered the magical world of Hogwarts. Which kid did not love the Harry Potter series by J K Rowling. To top that I was reading the HP series even during my board exams. We all kind of grew up with the 11-year-old Harry Potter to the one taking his OWLs. The trio – Harry, Hermione & Ron were the epitome of friendship goals. HP series taught me how to stick around even in harsher conditions.

For romance I walked through the pages of¬† Mills & Boon. Next in line was ‘Shopaholic series’ by¬†Sophie Kinsella. That series mentions shopping in the name itself. I was bound to like them.¬†The ¬†thrill I felt while reading ‘Tell me your Dreams’ ¬†made me fall in love with Sidney Sheldon.Off late, I have developed interest in reading fictional¬†mythologies by Amish Tripathi. The thrillers by¬†Ashwin Sanghi & Jeffrey Archer also keep me hooked on.

As you can tell this list is endless. I cannot point my finger to one author & call him/her my favorite.¬†There is wide ocean of authors to choose from & I for sure do not want to make the tough decision of favoring one. ¬†I know there are loads of people who feel the same. Do comment & let me know what authors you like the most…
