The world of books comes with a wide range of genres and if you like a lot of them you are hellbound to read over 50 books in a year. Some of the voracious readers read over a hundred. In a tumultuous world we mostly relish fiction. Unimaginable crimes  and captivating fantasies are bestsellers everywhere. Some fall for the romances while some take refuge and inspiration from the non-fictions.

But the freedom of today’s innovative writers coupled with the hunger of equally smart readers has made this genre a necessity in our lives.
