10 books for you in Quarantine
In this torpor time of quarantine, social distancing feels like been caged into some dungeon of negative vibes all around.
You want to go out but locked up in your room, want to study but cannot concentrate.
In the struggling days of self-isolation and ugly situation of no intercourse, the only content and positivity you can add in your lives is by watching or reading.
As a book nerd for years, and being a book blogger books are always being my first priority.
I feel my soul connect to words in which I have found my only solace. I reckon that brewing a cup of coffee and reading a good book can change your perspective of having fun even in the darkest of times, where there is all chaos outside.
There is no friend as loyal as a book.Ernest Hemingway
Therefore, I want to recommend some books that are definitely going to block all the lurch of coronavirus and cajole you to dive in the fictional world of mesmerizing characters.
HARRY POTTER BY JK ROWLING
Well who does not praise the wizarding world of witches and wizards and the whimsical adventures of HOGWARTS?
If you are or if maybe you are not a potter head, this is going to be my most magical recommendation to you out of all 10 books for you in Quarantine is to read HARRY POTTER. Just start your reading journey or you may call it your “quarantine journey”
I bet you are going to be thrilled at each step, taken by harry in the fatal voyage with VOLDEMORT.
JANE EYRE BY CHARLOTTE BRONTE
If you have not introduced by the richest genre of English literature, so it is the perfect timing for it. In Classics, Jane Eyre is consider the most beautiful and empowering story of a girl, who was an orphan.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.
The writing style of Charlotte Bronte is something you really want to explore and get yourself in the era of 1847. When there was intense gender discrimination and racism, as today’s world.
I admire this book depicting the most sensitive topics like feminism, woman empowerment in a way one cannot resist to stop them turning the pages.
PUMPKINHEADS BY RAINBOW ROWELL
Are you a comic fanatic?
This graphic novel by Rainbow Rowell has the most spectacular illustrations and an adorable story of DEEJA with her best friend Josiah, who work with her in a pumpkin patch.
The ties from best friends to lovers are always juicy to uplift your lazy moods. If you have an eye of an artist in you or if you can feel connected yourself with any type of art, this novel is everything for you.
A straight one siting read, with some snacks and a latte.
WE HUNT THE FLAME BY HAFSAH FAIZAL
When you became tired of the hustle and bustle of the city, your daily routine, faded days and nights in the hold back of turning to your normal routine, after ending coronavirus, but right now it is the time you would love to dive in the world of fantasy.
One of the most anticipated young adult fantasy until date is WE HUNT THE FLAME. Zafira is the hunter, Nasir is the prince of death. What is the chemistry between two opposite people who are involved in the quest of unwanted assassination?
Well you should read the book to find out and thanks me later!
IT ENDS WITH US BY COLLEEN HOVER
IT ENDS WITH US is the most thought-provoking story, depicting domestic violence I have read so far in the list of 10 books for you in Quarantine.
When it comes to shattering hearts, and mend them by herself, Colleen Hover is the Queen. Our protagonist, Lily Bloom is a human canvas full of colors and life, she is the woman, a daughter, a mother, a survivor, which everyone desires to be.
If you cannot fight with the consequences and does not take steps for yourself, then who is going to raise her voice with the injustice happening with woman for ages. Be that power, be that scream, be your own hero.
You are that strong echo who is going to tear the mountains, you are enough to say it all against male chauvinists, against abusive faces of most educated or respectable men.
So what are you waiting for? Just grab this book, have a comfortable nook and explore it with all of your heart.
SIX OF CROWS BY LEIGH BARDUGO
If you are a sucker for pirates, harbor’s, robbers, solving dangerous quest for achieving your goal, then SIX OF CROWS is surely for you.
SIX OF CROWS, CROOKED KINGDOM is a fantasy duology, based on the “Grishaverse” (the deadly fictional world where magic and science collide). The story of Kaz Brekker, a seventeen-year boy with a darkest past.
THREE DAUGHTERS OF EVE BY ELIF SHAFAK
When it comes to Elif Shafak, I think everyone have read her novel “THE FORTY RULES OF LOVE” at least once. I would love to recommend this book of hers to every single soul, who is exploring their relationship with God.
TWENTIES GIRL BY SOPHIE KINSELLA
When you land the right one, chick-lits can be quite fun!
TWENTIES GIRL by SOPHIE KINSELLA depicts the story of girl who find out one day that she can talk to ghosts. Sound horrible? No, no, no! It is one hilariously humorous story if you want to refresh your mood. Give it a chance.
SENSE ME BY ANNUM SALMAN
Who does not devour poetry? We all do. SENSE ME by Annum Salman is a treasure to gift yourself. SENSE ME is a book dedicated to several stages of a woman’s life.
The words of the writer dealt sensitively to the life cycle of a woman, who is fragile, who is strong. Who suffer worst but do not give up. Lightning the boldest topics, SENSE ME can take you to one heart-wrenching voyage of the dark face of society, depicting harassment, sexual assault, heartbreak, prejudices and so many harsh topics that would make you feel something.
TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN BY JOHN GREEN
Everyone is aware of the name of JOHN GREEN after his most famous and heart breaking book and its movie adaptation THE FAULT IN OUR STARS.
Well I loved it to every bits. Last year I came to read his book TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN, and man, I have blown away. Mental illness is a topic we need to put more light through the books. The way JOHN GREEN explained her protagonist’s OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) will make readers understand the pain of one who is suffering it to the extreme levels.
A must read book on mental illness.
