Book Recommendations – Part 1


Reading has always been my solace and there is nothing I love more than reading a beautiful, thought provoking and well researched book. But besides being a bookworm, I am also a proud show off (have multiple documented allegations of that) and update my reading lists publicly on goodreads.  Also, I am a member of multiple book clubs and I love the discussion and recommendations coming from my fellow bookworms.

Recently, someone asked me to send them a list of my top ten favorite books and the idea froze me with fear. How can anyone do that? There is no way I can list my top ten favorite books, I can’t even list my top hundred favorite books. But what I can do is to tell you the best books I have read recently. This list is in no particular order and I just picked up the books that I have read in past few months.

You will find most of these books available at our local book stores. I prefer shopping online so my favorite e-stores are readings.pk, libertybooks.com and fabingo.com (in that order!).  

So here is my list of beautiful books for you! 
  1. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley (Horrifying, though provoking, best of dystopian literature)
  2. My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk (Not just your regular murder mystery, a book so well written you wouldn’t want to put it down!)
  3. A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway (A tragic love story in the backdrop of WWI, it’s beautifully written and will make you cry!)
  4. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari (Absolutely brilliant, an extremely well-researched book that will give you a better perspective on our lives!)
  5. Ordinary People by Judith Guest (Will definitely make you cry!)
  6. A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking (Just read it, please!)
  7. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame (It’s a classic book from children’s literature, loved it!)
  8. Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg, Nell Scovell (Well, we all need to lean in, don’t we?)
  9. The Diary of a Nobody by George Grossmith, Weedon Grossmith (Really amusing, it’s a feel-good read!)
  10. Galileo's Daughter: A Historical Memoir of Science, Faith and Love by Dava Sobel (History, Science, and the story of an exceptional woman, what’s not to love?)

I do hope you enjoy these books. Let me know which one was your favorite?

We have a reading list for our #WomenInTechPK Community, you can see it here.

My goodreads and Instagram are here and here.
