But first I wanna know do you love reading?

If your answer is Yes, then you are gonna enjoy these books for sure. And if your answer is No, then let me tell you why should you start reading.

Five Facts about reading books:


<pFact-1: Reading can make you a better conversationalist.

Fact-2: Neighbors will never complain that your book is too loud.

Okay! Now I think I have inspired you enough to start reading. Let's directly jump to the good reads 🙂

1. The Alchemist (Pocket edition)

Before I start to tell you about this book I want to tell you guys how and why I got this book. I have a serious passion for travel. I was searching for some travel inspiration books one day and this book came on top in suggestion. So I read the review of it, which was fairly good on

I didn't give a second thought to it and bought this book on Amazon. Now let's come to this book what is it about.

If you are passionate about something and you are looking for inspiration. This is it. This book is all about "How to make your dreams come true". The author Paulo Coelho explained how to listen to what your heart says. He also teaches how to know and understand the signs universe been giving us to follow our dream. He also teaches us how to recognize opportunity which most of us don't even realize how and when to seize them.

It's a worthy read. It includes magic, mysteries and all good things to keep your stick till the end to know what happens in the end?

2. How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life

This book is something really close to my heart as I really am a true follower of Lilly Singh aka IISuperwomanII. Those who don't know her -she is a YouTuber and an entertainer. She is so inspiring. She really is my true inspiration when it comes to being positive. Her book is a reflection of what she is in reality- Boss Lady, Funny, Inspiring, Hustler, Motivator, Believer and the list is long.

Told in her hilarious, bold voice that’s inspired over thirteen million fans, and using stories from her own life to illustrate her message, Lilly proves that there are no shortcuts to success. This book will teach you how to be a total slayer in your life. How to tackle the situation when life throws you the lemon. She has given her real-life experiences as an example of how she tackles the situation and how she had grown so far to have over 13 million subscribers on her YouTube channel. And a huge fan following aka "TeamSuper". I'm one of them too.

WARNING: This book doesn't include hopeful thoughts, cute quotes. And this book is not forgetting easy success. Because success, happiness and everything you want in life is something you fight for ...not wish for.

3. The Secret

This book has been the most inspiring and puzzling book I have ever read. It took to me months to understand what this book actually meant to say. This book is all about "Law Of Attraction".

This book has stories of different people gaining success by applying the Law Of Attraction into their lives. Twenty four amazing teachers are featured in this book.  As you travel through its pages and you learn The Secret, you will come to know how you can have, be or do whatever you want in life. You will come to know who you really are.

My personal experience with the Law of attraction has been amazing. From the past few months, I have been attracting travelling. And I have seen many places like Pune, Rishikesh, Diu, Delhi, Jammu etc. Some of the trips weren't even planned.

This year also I'm attracting more travel. Surely, the process of attracting things is not going to be easy. But as they say, the good things don't come the easy way. You have to patient and consistent with the thing you do and believe in what you do.

  1. I’ve heard so many good things about The Alchemist. I really need to pick it up and have a read. I enjoy reading so much but I’ve got to really be interested quite early on to continue

    1. what are you waiting for ?It’s a sign go buy it and read and do let me know how’d you like it 🙂

  2. Haha your reasons to read books made me laugh loudly. Especially the one that says, “: Dinosaurs didn’t read. Look what happened to them .” Totally hilarious! I need to read more and the titles you mentioned look insightful. I have heard from several other people that “The Alchemist” was a good read so I think I’d start with that book first.

    1. Thank you ! Even I laughed when I wrote those facts 😀 ” The Alchemist “was the first book I read too . It’s the best start to your reading journey .Do let me know when you read it . Enjoy!

  3. love your number two fact on reading, funny! I LOVE the Alchemist, it’s one of my all time favorites. I could literally read that book over and over again!

  4. A book is literally the words, the ideas, the mindsets, the advice, and even the experience of another person wrapped into a convenient, portable, always available collection of papers. The true benefits of reading are that you can pick and choose who you want to add to your inner group of influence, that will eventually affect who you become as a person.

  5. I have read alchemist, and the day I ended it, it had filled me up with so many positive thoughts and a feel to take up every challenge & nurture my dreams. I need to read other recommendations by you as well.

  6. I have read Alchemist and Secret, they were great reads. I am yet to read Superwoman’s book though. I loved the list and the reasons to read list is funny especially about those poor Dinos ?
