Room by Emma Donoghue
– A touching story of a mother-son venture and told from a view-point of a five year old, Room proves to be one of the most peculiar and moving books I have ever read. Never have I encountered or heard of a situation similar to theirs. This proved to be a decent and “disturbing” read.
Beautifully Damaged by L.A. Fiore
– After Fifty Shades of Gray, a lot of synonymous story-lines came out. This is one of them. There were other decent books similar to Fifty Shades which came out (like Beautiful & Walking Disaster)but some lacked vigor in theirs like this one. This bored me to bits, not making me want to finish it all the way.
The Silver Star by Jeanette Walls
– A heartbreaking story of a brave girl’s struggle to get hold of justice in the harsh adult world, this turned out to be a moving tale of accomplishing triumph against tough conditions with the help of loved ones amidst unfairness and difficulties.
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
– Disturbingly heartbreaking and beautiful, Between Shades of Gray lets you peek into the horrifying history of torture, death, prison, sickness, hunger and unhuman conditions of the 40’s. Somewhat similar to Night and The Book Thief, this is a terrifying story of survival amidst cruelty and adversities.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
– Shy, awkward but highly intelligent Charlie tries to cope up and blend in the wild and outrageously crazy days of teenage life and growing up.
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
– “Once there was a tree.. and she loved a little boy”
Heartbreaking, moving and truly inspiring, The Giving Tree implies the value of true and unconditional love through simple narration fit for all ages.
