  1. I would like to add ‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Hosseini to this list. It was his first novel but so beautifully written. I am not a big fan of novels but thoroughly enjoyed this one. It captures all the emotions.

  2. For me it’s the “The Sherlock Series”..It is so intriguing that you don’t feeling like getting up until the climax is done…Any day my favourite..
