Karna’s Wife – Kavita Kane

We have all read, watched, and rewatched Mahabharata. It is a story about families, friendship, power, love and betrayal.

Dongri to Dubai – Hussain Zaidi

The underworld scene or as it is known as the D-Company has always remained a mystery. This book takes you on the journey of the evolution of Mumbai Mafia.

It is a gripping tale which will keep you hooked right from the first page.

Harry Potter Series – J.K. Rowling


These are my personal favourites from the list. I know I have no right to judge, but I still can’t believe some people haven’t read HARRY POTTER. The magical world of Hogwarts school, the magic, the game of quidditch, the professors and power trio – Harry, Hermione and Ron are fighting the Dark Lord aka Voldemort. The books and the movies both do justice to the series. I can’t even stress how good these books are, and no amount of write-up can do justice to these books. Read these books to find out how awesome it is.

Mills and Boons

The name is enough. Who doesn’t love a story which includes a tall, dark, handsome, rich guy and a girl who wants to fulfil her dreams through hard work? The protagonists are total opposites but are drawn towards each other. It may sound cliche, but this is what we all grew up reading and watching in movies. A simple read of a love story where everything falls apart just so that it sticks together forever with a happy ending is what we all want.

Thank you πŸ™πŸ½ for this list! I look forward to reading them. The kids read Harry Potter growing up, but that’s the only one on the list I’ve read. Currently, I’m in love with the books by Vishen Lakhiani: Buddha and the Badass and the Code of the Extraordinary Mind.
