‘In the Orchard’ by Peter Hobbs

In the novel ‘In the orchard’, the swallows a stirring novella by Peter Hobbs is a pristine example.  In this novel a nameless person is love with the daughter of the wealthiest man (most powerful person) in the village for this  he is  taken away into a cold and brutal prison where he is chained to crowded wall with no access to fresh air and sanitation.
A quote of the novel : “love must be shared or else it is just madness”
CHARACTERS OF THIS NOVEL : A NAMELESS PERSON(main hero) ,SABA(his lover), ABBAS(his life saver also who he tell his story) ALIFA(abbas daughter) and more sub characters.
Best part I like : both of them first meeting market and meeting each together in a wedding function
I like this book very much. I recommend this book to all of you especially who loves adventures and romantic story.

‘Dracula’ by Bram Stoker

Suryasree“There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.” -Bram Stoker

I chose Dracula by Bram Stoker as my FAB book. The main character of this book, Jonathan Harker, a young London laywer, travels to Transylvania to help a rich nobleman, Count Dracula, purchase an estate in England. But soon he realises that he was a prisoner in Dracula’s castle. He somehow manages to escape. Dracula is planning to immigrate to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse. This book also tells us about the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and a woman, led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. You want to know the story??? Read this book. I don’t wanna spoil all the fun.
It is a wonderful thriller. I recommend this book to all. My rating to this book is 5 on 5.

‘Shopaholic to the stars’ by Sophie Kinsella

20180408_151718I chose the book shopaholic to the stars written by Sophie Kinsella for this year’s fab challenge. Shopaholic to the stars is a book that tells about the shopaholic Becky Brandon, who had newly moved to Los Angeles with her husband Luke and her daughter Minnie. Her desire was to become a celebrity stylist. She got a chance of styling an A-list star who is a client of Luke. Does she really like that job or not? To know more about the story read this book written by Sophie Kinsella. This is one of the best books in the series. The book is worth reading and very interesting. I rate this book 4/5.

‘Being Salman’ by Salman Khan

20180410_093504“Mein dil mein aata hoon samajh mein nahi” this was a famous dialogue from the movie kick released last year by Salman Khan. Famous celebrity of Bollywood, but he is known as the bad boy of b town. It is because of many of his works. From the black buck case to an accident he had been blamed a lot. But still, I would suggest this to all because this book is not to justify nor to influence anyone or even to prove any of his honesty, its just to understand what BEING SALMAN is…
