So here is the last one of June challenge!
Day 30 Thirty Books
June 30, 1936. Margaret Mitchell’s book, Gone with the Wind, was published.
Your last Challenge!
Have you dreamed of writing a novel? Set a timer for thirty minutes and free write! Write whatever comes to mind, then take just a few moments to do some simple editing such as correcting grammar and spelling.
Alternative: Have you read Gone with the Wind? Do you want to read it? What books do you want to read? What books have you read that you recommend? What books do you not recommend or will you not read?
Give us your list of thirty books.
Here I go with the alternative option!
A. No, I haven’t read Gone with the Wind.
B. Yesssss! I want to read it!
C. I want to read all the books on which I can lay my hands on. P.S. I want to lay my hands on all books I can! 😋😂
D. Now that’s a difficult one to do. Recommend books! You ask why? ‘Cause what I like may not appeal to you 😐:?
E. I totally cannot read erotica. I cannot read so much of detail of those scenes! Though I am a romantic buff, yet I somehow can’t bring myself to read these.
The list of thirty books:
1. If you could see me now – an all time favourite of mine by Cecelia Ahern.
2. Can you keep a secret? – a sweet rom-com by Sophie Kinsella.
3. Robert Langdon series – the series just keeps me hooked, by Dan Brown.
4. Alex Cross series – The thrillers solved by Detective Alex Cross are what I can read anytime. I am already on book 12 and seeing the lesser number left, I have decided to go slow on them.
5. Odd Thomas – a brilliant book suggested to me by two good friends of mine, Sarah and Lion. I am trying to get myself to read the other books of Dean Koontz.
6. Kiss an Angel – by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Goodness! This book always makes me laugh. The funny situations and the circus surrounding in the book, is just what make it readable again and again.
7. Tell me your dreams – by Sidney Sheldon. This is the book which got me back to reading, after marriage.
8. Me before You – by Jojo Moyes. This book made me cry, laugh and suffer as the story of Lou and Will moved ahead.
9. To Sir, with Love – By E.R. Braithwaite. A must read for every teacher.
10. A hopeless romantic – by Harriet Evans. Another romance comedy which I have read.
11. Where love finds you – by Marilyn Grey. A slow and sweet story. Talks about the idealistic love, quite a rarity in these days.
12. When the city sleeps – by Marilyn Grey again. One book which I loved reading. I instantly fell in love with the hero of the book. Now don’t ask me why!! 😍😍😘😘
13. Best of fools – again by Marilyn Grey. This is a really amazing one by her. I have read all the books by this writer and I just adore her style and her stories.
14. A tale of two cities – a classic which needs no words, by Charles Dickens.
15. The boy in striped pajamas – a really saddening one. In today’s world I again find it somehow relevant with the refugee crisis and the Palestinian state in mind. 😥
16. Undomestic Goddess – By Sophie Kinsella. The story was something which seemed close to heart to me!
17. Beauty and the beast – This is the only fairy tale which I can read and watch the movies on those lines as many times as I can! My childhood crush was the Beast of Disney. How mad I had been! (P.S. I doubt if I have changed!)
18. When Crickets Cry – by Charles Martin. A very emotional read.
19. Daddy – by Danielle Steel. The story was a wonderful one about a man trying to be perfect in his roles as son and father!
20. A perfect life – by Danielle Steel. Another emotional read.
21. P.S. I love you – by Cecelia Ahern.
22. Love,Rosie/ Where Rainbows end – a beautiful story in letters and mails, by Cecelia Ahern (again!!)
23. Where the river ends – by Charles Martin. A story of a husband trying to help his dying wife strike out things from her bucket list!
24. A fine balance – by Rohinton Mistry.
25. Anne of Green Gables – by L.M. Montgomery. Another wonderful classic book.
26. Are you afraid of the dark – by Sidney Sheldon.
27. The Kite Runner – by Khalid Hosseini. A marvel in itself! One amazing read.
28. First Lady – by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Another romantic comedy which I enjoyed a lot!
29. Glass Palace – by Amitav Ghosh. A remarkable story.
30. Bloom – by Marilyn Grey. A very different story of a woman, who drives away everyone from her who pity her, after the fire accident.
Goodness! That’s the list. Not in any particular order, I listed them as and when those titles came to mind. I loved reading them and there are many many more which I read and can’t remember now. Then there are many many many many more, waiting to be read! 😮
So, that is the last post of the June1-30Challenge. Quite a comprehensive one to bring in the end! 😰😰

Some of you might be spending the night, the Laylatul Qadr, please do remember this soul in your prayers. Do pray for me and my family!!
