Por Far From The Madding Crowd

Por Far From The Madding Crowd

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 :)

The Tartar Steppe

Dino Buzzati

9,99 € 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 ;)

One Hundred Years of Solitude

Gabriel Garcia Marquez

8,99 € 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.

The Consolations of Philosophy

Alain de Botton

10,99 € 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!

10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World: SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019

Elif Shafak

8,99 € 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.

I'm a Brazilian happily living in Scotland, but still getting used to the weather.
