HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I wish you an amazing year, full of wonders and books!
Have you read any of them? Have you got other titles that would suit that list?
I am constantly browsing blogs for books to read, for reviews that unveil a book I would really love reading. Here is the round up of the best I found this week:
Would you like reading such a weekly roundup of reviews that I liked and that I added to my growing reading list?
I love reading books, they make me travel, escape this world, the routine and live other lives. But some of them just make me feel GOOD.
Cathy Cassidy did a top of her top ten feel good books and I thought of sharing with you my own top feel good books. I will not go for a top ten but a top three of the books that I loved reading and left me with a smile on my face and a fuzzy, warm feeling in my heart (cheesy I know…)
It’s a collection of ancient folktales, from all parts of the world, treasures of wisdom and subjects of meditation …Wise, philosophical or ironic, they all are magical.
Extremely loud and incredibly close by Jonathan Safran Foer
A very touching book that will make you smile. I thought of doing a review – would you be interested? Leave a comment if yes.
La suma de los días/The sum of our days by Isabelle Allende
This is an autobiographical book by one of my favorite authors. It is written as a letter to her late daughter Paula, putting her up to date with the life of the Allende tribe in her absence. It’s a touching, funny, colorful and human book…
What are your feel good books?
How many of those books have you read? And how much do you remember of each? Which one has touched you the most?
Well…for my part…I have read only 14 of them and don’t remember much (I have read most of all years and years ago…). However, the one book that touched and stuck with me is George Orwell’s 1984.
What movies adapted from books have you enjoyed more (or just as much) as the original book itself? This link presents ten books that ere successfully turned into movies (and that means that they have’t lost their essence and their edge).
Which is your top three?
