Guilty Pleasures

We all love happy books with the perfect endings but who can deny, that books with not-so-perfect endings are a lot like a guilty pleasure. We all love to shed some tears while reading books and feel the emotions of the characters of the well-written books to our core. Among the crowd of many books, there are some which are worth the read. So here are our top picks of such books!

Auhor : Ruta Sepetys

We have all heard of Titanic and how tragic the incident was. It is even considered one of the great tragedies in the history of the world. But this book isn’t about that. The book speaks of the greatest tragedy in maritime history, which is very little known, the sinking in the Baltic Sea on January 30 1945 by a Soviet submarine of the Wilhelm Gusloff. The ship that sunk that day was supposedly overcrowded. It had a capacity of 1800 but it carried over 10500 passengers, owing to which over 10000 people lost their lives that day.

Now we all know the term ‘Karen’. That’s ‘apparently’ Ove. He is one to point out people he hates, one with staunch principles and strict routines. Short temper too. ‘Bitter neighbour from hell’, was something his neighbours called him.

Now, was he just considered bitter just cause he didn’t walk around with a fake smile plastered everywhere he went.

Does he hide something? Is his bitterness just a veil for his sorrow?

Author: Taylor Jenkins Reid
