After much thought, deliberation and research, I have come up with the following list of top ten books one should read.
1.The Da Vinci Code,Dan Brown: Undoubtedly, it is the book to have. Filled with history, mystery, conspiracy
 and adventure. It tells the story of a Harvard symbologist who, after being called on the scene of a murder finds himself in the midst of a battle going on for centuries.a battle to protect the identity of Christ's long lost children and their secret.

2.How Opal Mehta got kissed, got wild and got a life,Kavya Vishwanathan.Although the book has been drowned among allegations of plagiarism, it is still a must read. The story of an Indian-American girl who changes herself into an American teen all to get into Harvard.Noticeable are excerpts from princess Diries,Birn Confused, sloppy's first and second helpings.

A story set with a person's obsession with the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili., a book of pictures which has remained a mystery for ages with many conspiracy theorists claiming that it holds within itself a dark secret.Hypnerotomachia in itself is an enigma wherein it has been written in many languages, symbols and secret codes which have not yet been deciphered.

4.Kane and Abel,Jeffrey Archer: From the best ever fiction writers, this book is a legacy.Following the story of two character Abel Rosnowski and William Kane, different backgrounds yet a similar fate. The book is a memoir, a novel and a legend.A definite must read.
