- And explain why you think it is exciting.
I would like to talk about a book that has changed my life. The name of the book is “Atomic habits” this book is written by James Clear, and this is his first book which gave him much-needed recognition. This is a self-improvement book; by reading this, you will learn a lot about habits, how we adopt habits, and how we can alter any habit to get the best out of it. This book teaches you how to adopt good habits and eliminate bad ones. And this book is full of practical examples and exercises. I have tried a couple of them, and they work like a charm. One exercise I still remember is the “2 minutes rule”, In which you will have to start a good habit and do it for only 2 minutes a day. This activity will put a good move into the action, and you will be habitual to doing it after some time. It is exciting because you can easily follow the author’s advice and put it into action, and I have noticed that it works most of the time, which is remarkable.
Recently I have not been reading books that aren’t related to my profession, but I’d love to tell you about a book I read when I was in my early twenties, it’s titled “The Vampire Diaries”. I saw a TV series with the same title when I was young. Back then, I didn’t know there was a book related to the show until I came across it years later in a book store, and I was eager to read it because I enjoyed the TV shows so much. The book is about two brothers, “the Salvatore Brothers,” Damon and Stephan Salvatore. They were both vampires that fell in love with the same lady; the book was based on the story of their lives and how the two of them got the chance to date the lady they loved, who a human was, but in the end, she died, and the two of them never had the opportunity to be with her for life. I found the book interesting because it portrays the TV show I saw. I mean, it felt like I saw the show again. It feels so honest and factual, and I also enjoyed how they ensured that emotions were felt while reading the book. In the end, I’d love to reread the book when I have some free time.
Follow-ups of Describe an Exciting Book that You Enjoy Reading: Recent Speaking Topics
Question 1:- Do you prefer books or movies?
Answer 1:- Honestly, It depends on the genre. For instance, I am reading the book sherlock holmes which is a crime and thriller, but I would like to watch a sci-fi movie instead of reading.
Answer 2:- Well, I think I prefer movies to books; most times, I don’t have the time to sit and read books, but I can watch a movie anytime I want, be it on my phone or the TV, and books are more time consuming than movies because the unnecessary scenes that have been edited away from the film are still included in the book, so that makes it longer.
Question 2:- Do you think reading the book before watching the movie version is essential?
Answer 1:- Well, I have read the book “And then there were none”, which is a masterpiece by Agatha Cristie, and I have also watched its movie as well. And I believe it’s not essential to read before watching a movie. Films cover all critical events, and you won’t miss anything.
Answer 2:- For me, I think I prefer reading the book before watching the movie version because the movie is more like a snippet of the book; some of the scenes have been cut off, so it is better to have the full details in the book to understand the edited part in the movie, and also reading the book first brings a sense of anticipation when watching the movie version, I always anticipate for certain scenes I enjoy from the text in the movie.
Question 3:- Do boys and girls like the same kinds of books?
Answer 1:- Well, I don’t want to stereotype. But I have seen some patterns regarding the preference for books among boys and girls.
Answer 2:- Well, I don’t think that is the case; most young females prefer romance-themed books, love stories or books related to nature, whereas boys enjoy comedy, biography, or sci-fi-related books.
Question 4:- What books do Indian people like to read?
Answer 1:- I think Indians don’t have any specific preferences. We like to read what excites us, and it doesn’t depend on any kind. We like to read from novels to self-improvement books, depending on the content and not the type.
Answer 2:- The kind of books that Indians love to read; well, I can’t really say I know much about that, but I think Indian people love historical and biography movies, so I want to believe they will like history and real-life story books just as much as they love related film.
