My Favourite Books


Written on 1:12 PM by Sarthak K

Saw this bookie post on Phoenix's blog, thought I should write about my own favourites as well!

A book that made you laugh: The Inscrutable Americans, Anurag Mathur...simply hillarious!

A book that made you cry: The Kite Runner, Dobby's death in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, One Flew Overthe Cuckooo's Nest

A book that scared you: none till now

A book that disgusted you: disgusted in what sense? If its what I'm thinking, then I actually like disgusting books. In that case, Delhi by Khushwant Singh wins hands down :D

A book you loved in elementary school: The Wizard of Oz

A book you loved in middle school or junior high school: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, A Room on the Roof by Ruskin Bond

A book you loved in high school: White Mughals, City of Djinns - both by William Dalrymple, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

A book you loved in college: Five point Someone by Chetan Sharma, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, The Da Vinci Code

A book that challenged your identity: The Fountainhead

A series that you love: Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, including The Hobbit

Your favorite horror book: The Forbidden Forest

Your favorite science fiction book: 20,000 Leagues under the sea

Your favorite fantasy: Harri Puttar (Harry Potter)

Your favorite mystery: The Hound of Baskervilles (Sherlock Holmes), Angels and Demons, Q and A

Your favorite biography: Wings of Fire (APJ Abdul Kalaam), there was one on Bill Gates which I read many years back;

Your favorite "coming of age" book: Five Point Someone

Your favorite classic: Macbeth, Great Expectations

Your favorite romance book: Dont like romantic novels much!

Like Phoenix, I must have missed like a gazillion good ones in this impromptu listing. Books are forever - they are the treasure, unfortunately lost many of them to people who borrowed but never returned back! That includes my first ever girlfriend...
