Books to read | A beginner's guide


  
Hello there! Now this will be one of my favorite blogs because I love reading books a lot. I also post book reviews on my Social media handle and I get many replies saying, “Even I want to read books but it's really boring”, “How on earth do you read books?, “From where to start?”, “Could you suggest me some interesting books?” and the list goes on…

So I thought why not make a blog? ANYYYYWAYYYYSSSSSS

If you want to know the secret behind reading books then check out 'How to read A LOT of Books'.

Reading is such a good habit but sometimes people just start with the wrong book and get discouraged by thinking that reading is not their thing. Therefore, the books I am going to recommend are easy, quick reads, and also interesting.

Book #1 The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho



If you are a reader and didn't read this book then WHY DID YOU NOT READ IT YET???

I have suggested & also gifted this book to many of my people. Many of you guys must have already been familiar with this book as this book is a widely translated international bestseller. It’s a fable about following your dreams. Written in simple language, the storyline is catchy and you will not lose interest while reading this book as it is a mystical story of a young shepherd who travels to find a treasure, and what happens next is the reason you should read this short inspiring book.

Moving on to

Book #2 The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini



A perfect example of how a fictional book should be. I don’t have words that how wonderful this book is. The story set-up is in Afghanistan, USA & Pakistan. I loved the way how each scene is well described which surely will let you grip it till the end. I bet even a stone-like personality will get emotional while reading this art.

So, our next book is...

Book #3 The Palace of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni


I mean come on, this book is next level A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I never knew I may be into mythology books, but man! Mahabharata from the perspectives of Draupadi. Never knew, would be such an interesting read.




Book #4 If God was a banker by Ravi Subramanian



Believe me or not; I completed this book in just 2 days being hell’ a busy. I just could not keep it down; it’s a novel with self-help touch. Two MBA pass-outs from IIM, both of them are as opposite as cheese and chalk. Being friends, they are widely different from their thoughts, ways of working, lifestyle, and, ethics. The author has highlighted office-politics, corporate life linked with personal life, emotions, love, etc. The main character Aditya is mentioned as God in the book by one of the characters.



Book #5 Attitude is Everything by Jeff Keller


I thank this book for enriching my perspective towards everything! I ensure this book will help you to take things in a positive way 24/7. A step by step guide to develop a positive attitude and achieve your goals. Less preachy and more real-life examples. I would suggest you, note down or highlight important paragraphs or sentences so that you can re-read it once a while.


Book #6 IKIGAI



A book that will merely make you realize that self-love is important. A quick read, as catchy as the cover of this book. Isn’t it pretty?


Book #7 7 Habits of highly effective people by Stephen R.




This book was on my wish list for a long time. I read it and regret it… I regret PEHLE Q NHI READ KIYA THA MENE! (Why didn’t I read it before?) One thing this book taught me that the way we see things depend on our perspectives. Words are engaging that you will not get bored. Beginners, I tell you, read it!





Book #8 It Happened in India by Kishore Biyani



A failure & success story of the owner of Pantaloons, Big Bazaar, Grand Central, and, Future Group. The different ideas to market his business is really innovative. Highly recommended to my MBA friends. You will learn about business tactics, marketing, leadership, etc. Explained in simple words which makes this book interesting.

So, these were the best top 8 for beginners I have found. If you want me to suggest some more books then do let me know. Till then, stay safe and stay home.

I lived like Bear Grylls for a week

  Lonnnng time no see! Hey there, I am back with a new blog and I have something exciting to tell you all. I went for snow trekking!!! Ehm! Divya, you don’t like trekking and how come a word you love and a word you hate came together? Well! It happened. ANYWAYS! So, what did I  do to make my trip look like a Man vs Wild episode? Here’s what happened..   Snow trekking is a bit different than a normal trek. What different? You walk but in snow. Your girl saw, felt, touched snow for the first time ever. The experience was unbelievable yet beautiful. You climb one mountain to another full of snow or hints of snow.    I lived in a tent, slept in a bag, ate fire cooked food, walked mountains to mountains, used dry toilet, no signal, nor internet, in short did every thing opposite which I usually do in my life. It was like living in a parallel universe for me!    I’m a girl who always went everywhere with her family. You can check this blog out  to see how I end up every trip with

How to read A LOT of books?

A LOT of people ask me how am I able to read so many books.  I want to share with you guys about the consistency of reading books. Once again, as usual, before starting I will say- This blog is totally a personal experience about my reading habits. I’m no professional. Also, this blog is not sponsored as who is going to sponsor this noob, LOL (crying in the corner) LET’S JUMP IN!! Do a bit of research:  Before starting your book reading process you should do some research about what type of books would you like to read or you might be interested in. Basically, there are two types- Fictional & Non-fictional books. Fictional books consist of fables or imaginary stories, characters, plots, etc and Non-fictional books- there are biographies, autobiographies, history, in short, they are informative. Long story short- Fictional books contain non-real stories and Non-fictional contains real stories. So, research about your genres and

Hallucination

I am the unlucky person who works for 6 days a week, so obviously when Saturday showed up I went crazy, cherry on cake I was going for shopping the next day with my cousin- Sanjana (Sanju di). Di is a good company when it comes to shopping and outing. Next Sunday morning I woke up at 8 am – SO EARLY!!! I was disappointed in myself, com’on who wakes up at 8 in the morning but TADAAA!!! RIP Sleep! Back to my Sunday’s out. I was supposed to meet Di at Thane station. So, it was my brother who dropped me at CST Station and “My day out” began... One thing while travelling alone sucks, there’s no one to talk and if you use your phone then probably chances are you cry the whole way coming back home due to no battery. CST is the starting station and we can sit wherever we want. Just be ready to answer the “ Kidhar Utroge ?” question. Obviously, I sat beside one of the window seats. As soon as the train started, my level of boredom increased. Helplessly, started starring the wo
