Title:  The Book Thief
Author:  Markus Zusak
Genre:  Historical Fiction/ Holocaust Fiction
Brief Synopsis:  A simple story of a German girl with Death as the narrator and of course the story is based in Nazi Germany. 

My comments: This book has been labeled as 'Future Classic' and I am pretty sure its gonna be featured in text books. The book is poetic, humorous in a dark way and it just steals your heart. You start caring for the characters and ahh.. I can just go on and on. Its a must read and believe me you wont regret it.

A quote to show how poetic the writing is-

"Trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like rain."

Title: The Alchemist
Author:Paolocoelho
Genre:Fantasy
Brief Synopsis:The Alchemist presents a simple fable, based on simple truths and places it in a highly unique situation. And though we may sniff a bestselling formula, it is certainly not a new one: even the ancient tribal storytellers knew that this is the most successful method of entertaining an audience while slipping in a lesson or two. Brazilian storyteller Paulo Coehlo introduces Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who one night dreams of a distant treasure in the Egyptian pyramids. And so he's off: leaving Spain to literally follow his dream.

you have to think u will love this book and then read it ... and trust me you will love it ... it has flaws not like everyone says thats it's perfect .. but some lines ... some magic is in there ... and you'll be finding yourself highlighting those as u go on .. a delight i had reading this one

Title: Pride and Prejudice



Author: Jane Austen
Genre:Romance/Ccmedy
Brief Synopsis: Pride and Prejudice is the story of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet and their five unmarried daughters.- Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty and Lydia Bennet. The main concern of Mrs. Bennet's life is to see that all her daughters are married, preferably to men with large fortunes. Love is soon in the air for one of the Bennet sisters, when Mr. Charles Bingley, a wealthy gentlemen from the city along with his friend the proud Mr Darcy arrive in their neighbourhood. For the Bennet sisters many trials and tribulations stand between them and their happiness, including class, gossip and scandal. 
My Rating: 6 out of 5 stars!
My Comments: This book doesn't really need a review, I mean it's a classic! It is one of the best books I've ever read. It is a perfect social comedy. The dialogue is both believable, natural, and yet ten million times more interesting, witty and articulate than anything real people say. The characters are so well-drawn, interesting, and deep that you get drawn into the story from the first page. Elizabeth and Fitz are both smart, witty, self-confident and good. Austen could not have written them better. This one has made it onto my list of All Time Favorite novels and is truly one of the classics that lives up to its billing. So if you love romance and are a fan of classic literature (like me Embarrassed) then turn off your PC/laptops and go read it NOW!
P.S If you want you can watch the movies/Tv shows based on this novel beforehand. I did it that way and it actually helped me to follow the timeline of the book better.

Title:  Finding Grace
Author:  Sarah Pawley
Genre:  Romance & Historical fiction
Brief Synopsis:  It's a story of a bold, intelligent, and willful young girl who goes against her family and runs away before she's forced into a marriage. She goes to live with her brother and sister-in-law in the city. Here begins her journey of discovering who she is and a possible romance with a handsome neighbor, however, neither is without scars and the past is bound to catch up to them.
Comments: Even though it's set in the early 1900s (I think), it's more of a romantic book than historical fiction.  I enjoyed reading it very much, even though it's has a few mentions of religion and praying. It's not over the top as I know some books can be and are pretty annoying. This one definitely isn't.
