7. From Stardust To Babylon - Amanda Bucan

Like I said earlier, this is one type of book which I haven't read for quite a long time.This is a true love story of the author Author Bucan and she portrays the concept of Love Beyond Death in a very interesting way. The book narrates chain of events which happened in a span of 14 years which Amanda Bucan personally experienced.

The best thing about the book is that it can't be categorized into any particular genre per se. The book starts as a love story and takes a turn as paranormal activities starts taking place and as the story progresses the book gets converted in spirituality.
