    All are not good at all, some mentioned are bullshit.LOO and Uraal of Nayan Raj Pandey are far better than some mentioned above. Some were famous because of the authors connection to big tycoons and media house. Palpasa cafe a good read but Mayur times is a nightmare. How can you call saaya and Summer Love as novels with good review. Karnali Blues, Palpasa cafe, seto Dharti , mentioned biographies are good one.

  • Ramesh Tiwari

    I don’t agree with your list.

    Some of the books you have listed didn’t even get any attention by media and reader. Mayur Times, Yayabar, Uni can’t make a list.

    Go to and see which one is popular and voted by readers.

  • saroj karki

    Firfire is kind of book which can produce tears during laughter and emotional scenes both.
    It will be on this list after sm duration for sure.

  • Karishma
