Top Fantastico Novels

I picked up to read my first “non academic” book when I was around 8 years. It was a copy of a Tinkle Magazine that was quite famous around that time. Since then my fascination towards books has never died down. It has surged to a huge level, that not a day goes by, without reading some book or the other. 
I have been fascinated and intrigued by the several characters, plot line, twists and the humor in them. I’ve also wondered at the sheer skill of the authors to write such Fantastico novels and making us gripped 
So here’s a list of some of the Fantastico books I’ve read, both novels and non fiction included
