Best Books that I read in 2015 #BooksIReadIn2015

I have read 21 books in 2015. Fortunately, I could cover many genres like Fiction, Non fiction, Horror, Mythology, Mystery and Romance.

Here are the top 5 books that I liked:

The Curse of Brahma by Jagmohan Bhanver
Genre: Fiction, Mythology
My Rating: 4/5

The story covers the incidents and circumstances before the birth of Lord Krishna. The story is not preachy and very informative. Being a person who knew Bhagavatham from childhood, it's a pleasant read for me.

Pupil's President Kalam - Edited by Satyam RoyChodhury
Genre: Non fiction
My Rating: 5/5

This is a collection of articles, speech and real life experiences of our beloved Ex-President, Missile-Man, A scientist, Philosopher, Artist and a great teacher. A motivational book to get inspired.

The Thread that binds by Alice Hayes
Genre: Fiction, Women's fiction
My Rating: 5/5

A wonderful book which combines the stories of 5 different women, their lives, their problems and their approach towards life. The title of the book is very apt and it is interesting to know how all these stories are bind at the end.

The Silent Scream by Siddhartha Garg
Genre: Non Fiction
My Rating: 4/5

This book is a guide to parents on the preventive measures that they can take to provide a safe environment for their kids. Unlike other books that I have read earlier, this is not a fictitious story. There are many real stories in the book which melt your heart and make you scared of the environment our children are living in. This book also contains some suggestions and pointers given by psychologists on securing our children from sexual abuse.

Ramayana - The Game of life (Part 2) by Shubha Vilas
Genre: Mythology
My Rating: 4.5/5

This part of the Ramayana Series covers the story from the decision of Dasaratha to crown Rama as King to Rama's exile to forests with Sita and Lakshmana and the way how different people react to this and cope up with the situations. There are many wonderful lines in the book mentioned in the footnotes section. I want to note these lines and remember them always. I love this book for the wonderful analogies that author mentions.

So, here is my quick list of wonderful books that i read and loved in 2015. I wish to read many great books in 2016. 

Until next time,

Happy reading!
