The perfect start to
My favourite book to start the New Year with is the book ‘She Can You Can’ by Garima Kushwaha which is a collection of stories about inspirational Indian women who have reached great heights in their life and paved paths for other women to succeed. The struggles and successes of these women motivate me.
I would like to start the new year reading this book because it teaches me to keep trying, stay strong and face challenges bravely. Reading this book in the beginning of the year will keep me stimulated and determined throughout the year.
Always a potterhead
When my mother bought the complete collection of the Harry Potter series, I was very excited to read it. I have liked the series a lot and am eager to start my new year with "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'. I have read all the novels in the Harry Potter series and I have loved the way J. K. Rowling has described the characters and brought the magical world alive. I have read and heard a lot about "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" and am interested to read it because I am curious to know what happens after the seventh book and who is the cursed child.
Take your chance
My favourite book to start the New Year with is Robert Kiyosakis top rated book Rich Dad Poor Dad I recently ordered its hard copy but previously I had read a little bit of the book. In this book the author has written about two fathers. One is his biological father or "Poor dad and the other is his friend's father "Rich Dad". Both were successful in their own fields. The poor dad was a PhD holder and yet he died broke. On the other hand the rich dad had never pursued his education beyond eighth class yet he left a million dollars. Both the fathers taught Robert different lessons. I learnt from the book that getting good grades in school is not sufficient, acquiring more knowledge and taking risks at every moment is most important in life.
The book I would start the New Year with is The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl' by Stacy McAnulty. The story is about twelve-year-old Lucy, a highly introverted math genius, who joins middle school with a goal to make one friend, do one activity, and read one non-mathematical or economical book. Her struggles to socialise and make friends because of her weird disabilities and side effects of her Einstein-like math skills after being struck by lightning, give us a new outlook. The book teaches us that there is more to life than what we have already done and that we need to start fresh on broken friendships, find solutions to problems and enter the New Year positively.
Kindle the inner detective
My favourite book to start the New Year with is The Sherlock Holmes it's been a while since I've been a Holmeshead. Seeing my deep interest and urge to read the books, my father decided to get them for me. I love investigation. Even my favourite movie genres would be action and investigation. While browsing through the library when I was 12, I saw Sherlock Holmes books in a corner of the shelf. But I couldn't borrow any of the books. This rapidly increased my urge to read Sherlock Holmes. I've waited two years and at last I am going to start 2022 with The Sherlock Holmes'.
Look at the bright side
My favourite book to start the New Year with is The Borrowers by Mary Norton. It tells the story of a family of little people who live beneath the kitchen floor of a deteriorating English country home. Pod and Homily Clock care their adventurous daughter Arrietty by borrowing what they have, and a touch more, from human "beans" who live up above. To not arouse suspicion, they take only things which might not be missed, like sheets of paper and old cigar boxes. This book teaches us life lessons, as was evident in Arrietty's first borrowing' mission. Rather than scolding her for losing the ice cube, her father emphasised her good points and areas to enhance, I like to read this book because it can make me line the positive priorities and intentions of setting new goals for this New Year.
With New Year approaching, I have been preparing my 2022 book list and on the top of it is The Shadowhunters' by Cassandra Clare. This is a book series filled with adventure, emotions, fiction, and above everything we get to see the friendship between two shadowhunters - James and William. For a fiction lover like myself, this book series is perfect to start the year. I would re-read this book with the hope to remind myself of all the values I need to be a better person.
Starting the New Year with a laugh
Though there are many books I'd suggest for all to read on the New Year, one book I think is the best is 'Crazy Times with Uncle Ken, written by Ruskin Bond. Uncle Ken is Ruskin Bond's uncle, who does not have a job. He frequently comes to Bond's grandmother's house to pass free time (which he always has), and every time he pays a visit, you can be sure that something mischievous is going to happen! The book sets us rolling with laughter with various moments such as when Uncle Ken accidentally drives a car into the Maharaja's compound wall, as Ruskin Bond and Uncle Ken visit a mental hospital, as Uncle Ken suddenly turns into a bird enthusiast and goes gallivanting into a forest only to be chased by an infuriated elephant! In the book, Ruskin Bond shares all his crazy experiences with his crazy uncle, which makes one wonder if such an eccentric human even exists on Earth. All in all, reading Crazy Times with Uncle Ken' has been a wonderful experience for me, and I'm sure it is perfect to start a new year with a nice, hearty laugh.
I usually set myself a list of New Year resolutions that I make in an attempt to fulfil during the coming year. Although it is an efficient way to cultivate discipline, one must not set unrealistic tasks for themselves.
For this reason, the story How Much Land Does a Man Need' by Leo Tolstoy is one of my favourite books to read as the New Year begins. The tale illustrates how a man's greed to own as much land as he can leads to his unfortunate death and the loss of what little land he had. In our quests for the big things in life, we mustn't forget the significant small things that have kept us happy.
An action-packed start
The moment I read the topic of the weekend inbox I immediately knew which book to read. The Hidden oracle is an amazing book to start the New Year with. An once immortal Greek god of archery and medicine (Apollo) is banished from Olympus after angering his father. Apollo thinks that this is a temporary change, however, he comes to realise that he has to defeat his arch enemy, who event the gods are afraid of. Can Apollo learn to become human? Will he ever defeat his enemy? Can he get rid of his big ego? This action-packed book is filled with humor, sacrifices, betrayals, mystery, and suspicion. I highly recommend this book and am 100% sure that it is the perfect way to start the New Year.
