Top 5 Books That Start With A-B-C-D-E

Happy Tuesday Everyone. 🙂 
Welcome to a new theme of Top-5-tuesday hosted by Shanah @bionicbookworm.

This month we will be discussing books corresponding to each alphabet. This month, I will try to talk about the books that I don’t talk about often. Today’s letters are A | B | C | D | E


American panda - Gloria chao

There are so many amazing things to love about this book : 
– The family dynamics,
– character development
– the representation of Taiwanese  culture

American Panda was a very refreshing book, the writing style made it easy to get through the book and it overall brought a big smile on my face. 


Babydoll - hollie overton

Most of the thrillers that I have read end with the heroine freeing herself from her captive. This book starts with it. 
Babydoll follows Lily who gets kidnapped when she was 16-years old. Now, after 8 years she she frees herself and her 4 year old daughter. 

This book was ah-mazing. The story was sad and captivating. It is frankly not the most well written book. But it definately is captivating and  heart warming 


Convenience store woman - sayaka murata

This book is completely opposite to the one above. I loved it like most people; BUT for very different reasons. 
I frankly did not enjoy the story and plot a lot. But this book gave me a very new perspective in my day-to-day life. Convenience stores are a big part of our life in Japan, and never before reading this book I had given it a thought of how things worked, how each store worker was the same to me as the author suggested, they all are wearing a mask of a store worker.
But after the book, I try to distinguish each person. And give them the credit they deserve. 


Daisy Jones & the six - taylor jenkins reid

OK! If you haven’t read this book, READ IT!
Daisy Jones & the six is a flawless book. It has the Best story, Best Writing, Best technique, Best charachters. 
This book will make you go on google and force you to put a face on the fictional charcters. force you to look for songs that dont exists. 
It’s super captivating and fasinating book.


Every last word - tamara ireland stone

This book is about Sam who has OCD. This story is completely about her acceptance about her disorder. This had an excellent mental illness representation which I enjoyed. Few other things to which make the book perfect :
– involved and caring parents
– awesome representation of a therapist
– friendships and romance were to the point
– the poems and the quotes were just brilliant <3

I loved this book to it’s Every Last Word!!

~~ Let's Chat ~~

    I read American Panda last spring and I enjoyed it a lot. As you said, it was interesting to be exposed to the Taiwanese culture. I adored the character development, too. One drawback (at least for me) is the romance. The love interest didn’t make me swoon at all. lol
