2. Flawed by Cecelia Ahern & Perfect by Cecelia Ahern
Genre – Dystopian
Rate – 10/10Get it here : Cecelia Ahern (2 Books) – Flawed and Perfect
These are the books that I read recently and I must say, I absolutely LOVED them. The story is such, that it will rip your soul, break your heart but also make you fall in love with the brave characters and the writing style. The first book ends with such a cliffhanger that you would be tempted to immediately start reading the next one. The main character, Celestine North is a mix of strong and weak, sugar and spice. She has the capacity to move you from inside out. These books can make you shake with fear, boil in anger and cry a river. It’s a dystopian novel which depicts the kind of society that suffers with a great amount injustice. Cecelia has an amazing writing style and you could start with these books if you haven’t read any by the author.
3. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
Genre – Dystopian
Rate – 10/10Get it here : Box Set (Hunger Games Trilogy)
Another favorite from the dystopian genre. This is such a gripping and unique story about a place called Panem, where every year, a girl and a boy are chosen from 12 districts to take part in The Hunger Games, a fight to death on live TV. The districts have a Capitol that is harsh, cruel and unfair.
These books are such a page turner. They made me skip my sleep and read till 2am. You would feel each and every feeling that the characters go through. The characters are wonderfully developed, even the side characters have a strong impact. It is such a unique, nail biting and thrilling plot. Each book ends with a perfect premise for the sequel.

Morrie was going to die of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Mitch was very fond of him as he was the person Mitch would always look up to for any hardships in his life. Morrie is such a positive soul, who looks at life in a very different perspective. They discuss about life, death, emotions, forgiveness, trust and belief. It is such an eye opener.

This. Is. Just. Wonderful. A story like this comes along very rarely. The main character August is a ten year old boy with a facial difference whom kids bully, laugh at and worse, get scared and scream when he’s around.
