If I Stay by Gayle Forman
– When I saw the trailer of the “If I Stay” movie, I went nuts. I loved it and the book was right away part of my reading list. Halfway through the book, I decided not to finish it. And I didn’t read the next part also – Where She Went. Probably because of my age that I somehow stopped liking uber teen-like romance and plots. If I were still a teenager, I would have loved this I’m sure. J
A Stolen Life by Jaycee Duggard
– Sick and tragic. Two words that I would describe this book. This is an autobiography of Jaycee Duggard when she was abducted at 11 yrs old and turned as a sex slave for 18 years. While I was going through the book, I never realized that such horrible things could happen. Truly sickening.
High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
– Where most guys could relate to.
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
– The dark secret of the past came back to terribly haunt the consciences of not only the suspect of the crime but the wife of the suspect as well. Torn between doing what’s right and protecting her own family, Cecilia is faced with a deep dilemma. The truth affects a lot of characters in the story and eventually moves to pay back what was long due.
Wuthering Nights by Emily Bronte and L.J. Miller
– Sickeningly bothering. I haven’t read the Wuthering Heights yet and I thought this would somehow be similar to Fifty Shades. Going through this book, I remembered Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty where I wasn’t able to finish because of the sickening acts of the characters. Same with this one, the erotic acts were terribly disturbing that I decided not to finish it anymore. Anyway, perhaps there are some who are really into these kinds of stories.
A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy
– Stories of different people evolving around the newly refurbished and opened Stone House (home-style hotel in a small town in Ireland) were crafted in this novel. Different people with different stories and backgrounds come together to share a common ground within their week-long stay in Stoneybridge.
