When you’re stuck in a huge pile of books, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed about which book to pick. So here’s a better gist of your must-haves from our July favorites!
1. To Kill A Mockingbird
You’ve probably heard this book from across the bookworms and critics out there. To Kill a Mockingbird gained thousands of good reviews worldwide, and we can’t deny that. The story takes readers to the roots of human behaviour—to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into ten languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American Literature.
2. Adventures Of Tom Sawyer
Go for the classics! If you’re into nostalgic vibes, then this Twain classic will be your new buddy. A coming-of-age tale, Tom’s adventures give a nostalgic portrayal of boyhood and it remains one of Twain’s most well-loved novels.
3. Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes
The cult fave of all time! Anyone who never heard about this series may have never understood what it feels like a full-pledged detective. Set against the foggy, mysterious backdrops of London and the English countryside, these are the first twelve stories ever published to feature the infamous Detective Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Doctor Watson. They first appeared as stories in the Strand Magazine and feature some of his most famous and enjoyable cases, including A Scandal in Bohemia, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle and The Red-headed League.
4. Casebook Of Sherlock Holmes
The Sherlock craze doesn’t end there! Featuring the last 12 stories ever written about Sherlock Holmes, this collection contains some of Conan Doyle’s most villainous and unusual characters. The disillusionment and disenchantment felt in 1920s are reflected in the darker mood of many of the stories and many believe that the author’s developing interest in Spiritualism influenced the themes he chose to explore.
5. Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland
Our favorite childhood movie is now one for the books. Alice’s attempts to find her way home become increasingly bizarre, infuriating and amazing in turn. A beloved classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has continued to delight readers, young and old for over a century.
6. Frankenstein (collins Classics)
Written when Mary Shelley was only nineteen-years-old, this chilling tale of a young scientist’s desire to create life still resonates today. Victor Frankenstein’s monster is stitched together from the stolen limbs of the dead, and the result is grotesque being who, rejected by his maker, sets out on a journey to seek his revenge.
7. Fragile Things: Short Fictions And Wonders
Let’s take it from the #1 New York bestselling author Neil Gaiman. These marvelous creations showcase the unparalleled invention, storytelling brilliance, terrifyingly dark and entertaining wit of the incomparable Neil Gaiman. By turns delightful, disturbing, and diverting, Fragile Things is a gift of literary attachment from one of the most original writers of our time.
8. Encounter: Essays
Milan Kundera’s brilliant new collection of essays is a passionate defense of art in an era that, he argues, no longer values art or beauty. With the same dazzling mix of emotion and ideas that characterizes his bestselling novels, the internationally acclaimed author revisits the artists whose works help us better understand what it means to be human. Elegant, startlingly original, and provocative, Encounter combines many of the author’s signature themes with personal reflections and stories.
Emma sets her sights on finding a suitable match for her friend. Chided for her mistakes by old friend Mr. Knightley, it is only when Harriet starts to pursue her own love interests that Emma realizes the truly hidden depths of her own heart. Delightful, engaging and entertaining, Emma is arguably Austen’s most well-loved social comedy.
10. Cuckoos Calling
When a troubled model falls to her death from the balcony of her London home, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to investigate. Strike is a war veteran—wounded both physically and psychologically—and his private life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model’s complex world, the darker things get—and the closer he comes to terrible danger.
