My Top 8 Recommendations for The Reader's Block

A Reader's Block... I'm talking about the time you don't find any books to hook you into completing them or you just keep thinking about that "other" book series which is over or at a major cliffhanger that you can't take your mind out of or maybe just a newly budding reader trying to find your niche, genre to read..
A Reader's Block is very common....Every reader would've traveled  or is traveling down that demon road..Felt or is feeling that Frustration

These are a few books that I found most enjoyable during "that" time. This is my Top 8 Recommendations for The Reader's Block.

( Note : Click the book cover for the Goodreads synopsis )

1.  Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by           
This series is a new take on fairytale stories and this first book is a parallel to Cinderella's story. Extremely funny, interesting storyline and the little predictability is what makes this book so much entertaining and engaging to read. It is a light read with some great theme and gives you a sense of nostalgia. I swear to God! I've never had so much fun reading a book in a long time as much as this one.

2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
           You probably would've heard about this book a lot on the media. The movie released last February. This book is a beautiful story about a teen struggling with cancer. It is thought provoking, makes you value life more, entertaining to read and funny as well with Awesome characters. Humorous, emotional, intellectual, romantic..it's the full package! (Warning : Get some tissues ready though)

3.  The 5th Wave (The Fifth Wave, #1) by Rick Yancey 
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16101128-the-5th-wave           A book about alien invasion that is cool, with survival and humanity at it's brink. A grim concept, but the humor and fantastic characters make up for it. But, what really drives this book is the writing style. It is so Beautiful. I highlighted so much when I read this book. It's a book that appeals to a variety of genre lovers.

But the answers will take them out of their comfort zone and into the realm of the fantastic: another world with a different set of rules, and a leader who has no qualms about killing.

Theme Song: How Far We've Come by Matchbox Twenty

Things I Liked:


  • The first thing I really liked about this book is the premise! The lines of good and evil in reality is not as black and white as in theory, but it's like precariously balancing on a very thin rope dangling in an abyss. The story explores that concept in a subtly dark way, so props for that!
  •  The characters! I really, really liked the characters, they were realistic and I cared & connected with them. Tani and Keena were really sweet! But, two in particular, Eli and Ava, I just LOVED them. They were an effective pair! Especially Eli, who is really a badass, he reminded me of Samuel L. Jackson in Snakes on a Plane (Yes, I love that movie!)
    Who can argue the epicness of that line?! JUST BADASS AS HELL...Just replace snakes and plane with Murders and City! I
