Books you must read

Books are the best partner for those who feel lonely or those who fall madly in love with the books in their life. There is a famous quote by Abraham Lincoln which perfectly captures the essence of a book.

“My best friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read,” Lincoln had said.

Books are the best friend in the leisure time of any person. Books not only entertain people, but they also educate. Books are known to develop aesthetic sense too.

Here are some of the books that an individual must read:

1. 'When Dimple Met Rishi' by Sandhya Menon

'When Dimple Met Rishi' is an adorable romantic comedy about two teenagers whose parents have arranged their marriage. So if you are a hopeless romantic too just like the protagonist Rishi, you would love to be on this wonderful ride.

5. 'The Library of Fates' by Aditi Khorana

The gorgeous cover is enough to convince me to read this book; the fact that it’s a retelling of an Indian folk tale is just icing on the cake. Amrita, a princess, makes a sacrifice to save her people, but things go awry. She’s left completely alone, but is determined to warn her people of impending danger. But when she’s told that she has the power to reverse her fate, to change what has happened, will Amrita do her duty as a princess or test her hand at changing her destiny?
