Holiday Book Wishlist 2017

26 Nov 2017

I always say and will always keep saying it: books are the best gift you can ever get (besiFdes food). I have so many books in my never ending list which are on my goodreads profile but the ones I am sharing above are the "I would not mind getting them for the holidays this year" list.

1. Bear Town 
A novel written by the same author of A Man Called Ove (yet to read) about a small town that has big dreams. The story has some relation, actually quite big relation I reckon, to Ice hockey, so that really called my attention. I love sports, specifically soccer and basketball but lately I've been quite fascinated with Ice hockey too so this book would be interesting to read. But also because it is the story of a community coming together to achieve a common dream. 

2. When Breath Becomes Air
This one is a bit of a deep read. It is a memoir by Paul Kalanithi who was a neurosurgeon who got diagnosed with terminal cancer. He writes about the reflection of what could be the meaning of life? What is it that makes life worth living? I love books like such because it really makes you think about everything. 

3. The Girl on The Train 
This one I'm pretty sure people are more familiar with since it became a movie and all. Haven't seen the movie nor have I read the book yet, and I do not want to see a movie before reading the book so I need to read this first. 

4. Brida
From one of my favorite authors. I've read a couple of books from him but this one is next on my list. It has a bit of a similar style to The Alchemist (which is also on this list) since it deals with the mystical and spiritual powers and the connection to the universe. How fun does that sound? 

5. Little Fires Everywhere
This story is based in a town from Cleveland, so that is one of the reasons why I want to read it. Go Cavs! But in all seriousness, this book just like Bear Town, centers into a community, but instead of working together towards a common goal, there is some tension and disagreements that occur between them, hence the title of the book. 

6. The Sun and Her Flowers
This one has been a LONG time occupant in any type of book lists of my own. Rupi is one of my all time favorite poets so it is no surprise that I am dying to get this book into my hands. 

7. We Were Liars
Suspense novel. Enough said. 

8. The Alchemist
Basically all members of my family has read this book but myself. They keep recommending it over and over again so I guess the time has come for me to finally read it. Just as I mentioned previously, it has a similar theme to another one of Mr Coelho's books, Brida. I'm all about for spirituality and universe connections so yes, quite excited to be a part of this beautiful story. 

9. Just One Wish
Another book that is deep to read. Just like When Breath Becomes Air, it deals with the topic of cancer. It is about a 17 year old girl who her brother has cancer and she tries to convince him that he will survive an upcoming surgery.
