Persuasion - Jane Austen
Genre: Romance | Would i recommend to others?: Yes | Why i loved it?: Its a classic period drama, my favorite.It took me a while to understand the writing style of Jane Austen. And once i got the hang of it, i just breezed through. I got so involved with the story, i watched two movie versions of these right after. The story has a strong female lead who is the only sensible person in her family. And like any period dramas, there are families, there is dancing, singing, parties and dinners. There are lot of mixed relationships. I just wish the author delved deeper into the main relationship a little bit more. But i liked it all the same.

The Girl On The Train - Paula Hawkins
Genre: Thriller | Would i recommend to others?: Yes | Why i loved it?: Kept me guessing till the endBuy it here.
This one's written in multiple narrators style with unreliable narration(think Gone Girl!). It started out smoothly and got creepy and then thrilling. The writing style, switching between the characters' perspective just kept me guessing till the end about the quintessential "whoddun it?" Its a page turner and took me less than 3 days to finish it. Definitely worth your time.

The Woman in Cabin 10 - Ruth Ware
Genre: Mystery/Thriller | Would i recommend to others?: Yes & No | Why i loved it?: Interesting Twists
I pre-ordered this one, it just got released. I was not impressed with the writing style. I just kept reading these two phrases every 5 page of the book "walls closing in on me" and "my heart running a mile a minute". And the story was not interesting either for the 2/3 rd of the book. And its the last 3rd that got interesting. There were unexpected twists and I couldn't put it down after.
Thanks for reading.
