Not Just My Own Booklist – Part Deux

blur-book-stack-books-590493“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” – Stephen King

Before I lose my inspiration I thought it best to capture all the books from my close friends’ circle.  They are saved as posts on Facebook but sometimes that’s like looking for a needle in the haystack (as I found when I was looking for the relevant posts).  Therefore, I’m going to capture the rest of the books here in one place (technically, two or three) and call it a day.   I don’t want to lose the lists and want to be able to check them out anytime in one safe and secure place.

As a reminder, this is a booklist in random order of my friends’ favorite seven books.  The way this post and tag worked was that each of the tagged friends could only select seven books so I am going with the safe assumption that they chose their top ones.  Unless they were being ornery.  😉

So, here goes, the rest of the awesome list of books that are worth putting on your booklist:

Give Us Credit – Alex Counts

Nicholas and Alexandra – Robert K. Massie

The Year of the Runaways – Sunjeev Sahota

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind – Yuval Noah Harari

Harilal & Sons – Sujit Saraf

The Glass Palace – Amitav Ghosh

The Power of NOW – Eckhart Tolle

Four Steps from Paradise – Timeri N. Murari

Two Lives – Vikram Seth

Midnight’s Children – Salman Rushdie

No Friend But the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison – Behrouz Boochani, Omar Tofighian

The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

Do Not Say We Have Nothing – Madeleine Thien

Small Great Things – Jodi Picoult

The Language of Flowers – Vanessa Diffenbaugh

Shantaram – Gregory David Roberts

Cutting for Stone – Abraham Verghese

Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion – Sam Harris

Seven Sixes Are Forty Three – Kiran Nagarkar

Orphan X – Gregg Hurwitz

The Obstacle Is The Way – Ryan Holiday

The Hours – Michael Cunningham


Well, there are far more of these than I thought!  I do believe this is going to lead to a Part Tres.  Count this post as part 2 of 3.
