A post in this category is long overdue. I’m very sorry. Truly. I haven’t had a lot of time lately, and don’t right now either, so instead of doing a review, I’ll just briefly outline the stuff I like.
My favorite book genre is the thriller. These are action filled stories with multiple plotlines and are always fast paced. There are several subsets in this genre, and I really don’t have a favorite in them. My favorite authors in this genre are Preston and Child, Dan Brown, James Rollins, John Grisham, Stephen King, and Clive Cussler.
I also love reading autobiographies. I read a quote along the lines that the best autobiographies are the ones that are completely honest. There’s just something about these books that grip me; maybe it’s the fact that I get to learn a lot about the author, or that you get insight and knowledge into a lot of unexpected stuff – there’s never a shortage of surprises. I hope to do a review on some of the following authors who’ve written my favorite autobiographies: Barack Obama, Steve Jobs (biography, but still excellent), Abdul Kalam, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, and Vinod Mehta.
Those are my two favorite genres. I also like a wide variety of other books: comics (Calvin and Hobbes, Cyanide and Happiness, Tintin), short stories (The Most Dangerous Game, The Interloper), classics (1984, Sherlock Holmes, Robinson Crusoe, Around the World in 80 Days), and some fantasy (Harry Potter will forever be amazing, and I’m working on A Song of Ice and Fire).
In short, I like to read anything that, for me, is a fun read. Personally, this means a lot of surprises, a lot of action, and a lot of comedy. Hopefully I can find the time to do a review soon for this category; until then, I hope you enjoy this post, and look into some of the authors and books that I cherish the most.
