These are some of my favourite books. Most of them are 21st century classics and translated fiction. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did :)
Dino Buzzati9,99 € 9,29 €
The tartar steppe is about waiting. It is a tale about time lost, unfulfilled expectations, and longing. Certainly it is one of the best novels out there ;)
Gabriel Garcia Marquez8,99 € 8,36 €
Do you like magical realism? If that's your cup of tea this is one of the best books I've ever read in this genre. It tells the multi-generational story of the Buendias and their lives in Macondo, an imaginary city in the Caribbeans. It is somehow funny, gripping, and melancholic at the same time.
Alain de Botton10,99 € 10,22 €
Truth be told, I am a huge fan o Alain de Botton, and I love all his books. But this one has a special place on my bedside table. It is that kind of philosophy of everyday life, written in an accessible and enjoyable way. Are you facing any kind anxiety in this modern world? Feeling hopeless sometimes? If so, read this book!
Elif Shafak8,99 € 8,36 €
This novel is beautifully written and it lingered with me for a few days after I had finished the last pages. I think that's what we are looking for in a good reading, right? It tells the story of Leila, a Turkish prostitute and an outcast. We follow her thoughts and memories during the last minutes of her life in this world. It is a book about love, friendship, suffering, and hope.
