Gateway Books to Your Favorite Genre. T5W

Gateway books to your favorite genre that’s like asking for the top 5 recommended books by you. Heck of a question, ain’t it? Soon you find yourself in the middle of your room with stacks of books around you, looking for those few chosen ones that you want to name for the post, whew! You love these books and you want someone to read them, what to say that they will take it? LOL. I am doing this post for Goodreads group Top 5 Wednesday run by Samantha of Thoughtsontome and Lainey ofGingerreadslainey.

If you have read about me you will know that my most favorite genre is fantasy-adventure. I have already listed The Hobbit & LOTR by J R R Tolkien there. LOTR is a mammoth with more than 1000 pages to its credit but the book is filled with glorious imagination. I won’t be taking these two in the list nor Harry Potter. I am a reader of many genres so I will be listing a few books/manga that I have come to love simply because of their style, storyline and the depth of humanity they focus on.

My most favorite genre is fantasy-adventure but I don’t stop at that only my second favorites are food, psychological thriller, romance. So, here goes nothing…

Biblia Koshodou No Jiken Techou. Manga.

Written by Mikami En and illustrated by Nakano Biblia Koshodou No Jiken Techou begins like most case files do, with a guy looking at a girl. When Goura Daisuke’s grandmother passes away he and his mother decide to sell the book collection to a second-hand bookshop. One book in particular was gifted to her, autographed by the author. Daisuke looks for a shop and comes to a local second-hand book shop for evaluation of the books. According to the manga a beautiful woman named Shinokawa Shioriko a woman with long hair, cute spectacle eyes, surprising shy and an other worldly penchant for books takes care of the bookstore but in the series the looks are changed. Gouriki Ayame who plays Shirokawa Shioriko adapts a different look – cute pixie cut and isn’t four eyed.

2016. Sunny side up. Sunflower. Hows you been

First Quarter of 2016 Gone. Hows it been?

Years pass us by and we keep asking ourselves, “where has the time gone?” Time is absolute and he doesn’t like to be kept waiting unlike one’s boyfriend. It is almost mid April and three months of the year 2016 has passed us by. Hey, hi how are you doing? How’s your New Year Resolutions doing? How’s you treating yourself? You can answer this in the comment section of this post, please do, it would be fun to know.

After one week of awesome time in Goa I am back home and back to my job. I loved April so far. Since March end and closure of the financial year I have been entirely away from blogging. Good for me, I am back now. My mind is aching to give voice to the thoughts I have been having. I have tons of books and manga to read. I want to read and devour lots of blogs I have been putting off. I want to binge watch anime/movies. I have so much to do. Good thing, I do not make resolutions or they would be in tatters.

I could do so much more.  2016

Yep. Exactly.

How did it go for me till now? Ummmm… Let’s see:

  • Blogging is a bug and I can’t get rid of it. I want to write as bad as I want to read articles. Adventures, people, worldly matters, life, travel, books etc fight in my head to be written about first.
  • Steadily becoming healthier.
  • Planning a few adventures. Living for them.
  • I am reading again. Not like read a novel in a month but read an entire novel in one sitting. Crazy reading, I am back.
  • Had a day when I kept asking, “What a day. Is this destiny?” Still asking.
  • Silence is golden.
  • There’s no such thing as too much cheese. I LOVE CHEESE.
  • Sky gives hope. Sun, Moon, Stars, Planes, Satellites, birds… Sky is full spectrum of life. Spectacular Sky.
  • Writing. Trying to find my balance.
  • Asking questions. (As usual. Roll eyes all you want!) :p

2016 is a year full of adventures and fun little moments. Difficult times are bound to come just as the great times. I am ready to embrace them both.

Live. Love. Laugh.

Take care pals.
