5 books on my all-time favorite read list

1] The Harry Potter series by J K Rowling: Being a 90’s baby, it was my go to book each time I had a longing to read something which felt like home. Like J K Rowling said “Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” – this book and its characters have always been there to welcome me with a warm hug. Those who have not gotten a chance to read these books, I urge you to try to read at least one chapter from the first book and I am pretty sure you won’t regret it.

4]Memories of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon: Now this one is such a thriller, and makes you read the next chapter never keeping the book down. It is somewhat predictable but still one of my favorites only because of the writing style of Sidney Sheldon. There are other books written by him which people might find better, but this one was one of the first books that I read written by him and so is very special to me.
