Everyone knows there are a lot of good and popular fiction out there. I mean, like seriously a lot. However, I am not listing everything down on this post. There are just too many remarkable fiction books to be listed down here. In exchange, I’m going to list down books that can swell up your mind, body and soul. Here it comes:
1. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
This book has been on my TBR list for I don’t know how long and I regret right away for not picking up the book. This is a story of two very different family in background and life. Hardworking Mia and her smart teenage daughter Pearl with the wealthy Richardson family. I love how the book goes easy and calm while the story is somewhat complicated and emotional. This book also represent a little bit of reality life if I must add, like how the book shows every individuals have their own secrets and burden to bear.
2. Where The Heart Is by Billie Letts
Charm by the unique story plot, I ended up buying this book. This book directly becomes one of my favourites and later, I just know this book was chosen as Oprah’s Book Club selection. The story goes on as Novalee turns out to have her worst luck when everything strikes the number seven. Seventeen-year-old, seven months pregnant, stranded at a Wal-Mart in Sequoyah, Oklahoma, with just $7.77 in change. Through her journey for what that seems impossible to survive, Novalee meets lots of incredible and unique people in where she finds her heart is. This book is innocent, sweet, touching and emotional. There are a lot of mixed review regarding the book, but I seriously love this book.
3. Me & Emma by Elizabeth Flock
You might think this is another child abusive story judging from the cover and the title. Well, I’m sorry to tell you but this book is way more than an abusive household. eight-year-old Carrie is known to be timid and introvert while her little sister Emma is known to be brave with no sense of fear. The girls live in a terrible situation: they depend on an unstable mother that has never recovered from her husband’s murder, their stepfather beats them regularly, and they must forage on their own for food. The whole story is not that extravagant, but this book definitely worth the read. I repeat, this is not a mere abusive household. Brace your heart for the unexpected twist and turn.
4. Kaleidoscope by Danielle Steel
Well, actually I don’t really recommend this book for those who have weak hearts. This book is what people call as fiction that seems so real. This book is cruel and you can literally smell the word tragedy in every page you turn. The story starts as the love of a beautiful French woman and a famous American actor thrives beautifully but end tragically which sets three children to be orphaned and separated from each other. Each leads different lives until a friend of their father’s hired a private investigator to gather them all. Long live tragedy.
5. Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll
Actually, I expect this book to be another haunting thriller. It does not contain enough thriller vibe for me. I am not really reading this book for the thriller but for the message this book hold by the main character Ani FaNelli. Ani FaNelli is known to have hard past but now she literally has everything under control. Glamorous job, expensive wardrobe, and handsome blue blood fiancé. She has everything she had ever dreamt of except she is holding a secret from the past that can either break her or set her free. This book might tells more about how women see things nowadays with too much pressure from the judgement of the others.
