Let’s talk about books!

I was asked about my favorite books several times already so I finally decided to write about it!

My favorite crime novels series is the one about Fjallbaca written by Camilla Lackberg. There’s nine books and I read each one with one breath. I liked them a lot and even though I didn’t read crime novels before, these were awesome. I don’t like books or movies in which everything is obvious, where there’s no tension whatsoever, where you can guess what will happen and so on. In this case, in my opinion, this didn’t happen and there was a lot of moments when I opened my eyes wider and wondered how that’s even possible. My definitely favorite one is “The hidden child”, there was a point when I closed the book to take some deep breaths. It left scars on my mental health ;). I highly recommend!

Valko Tanya is a nickname of an author of one of the most interesting books I’ve read. My favorite part is the one you can see in the picture, it’s called “The Arabic Daughter” – it’s just my translation, I didn’t see an English version of it anywhere. It’s about a half Polish half Libyan who had to go through hard to imagine suffering. While reading it I could see what was happening in my imagination very clearly and I cried a few times. It’s full of fear, cruelty, family fights and so on… Hard to read sometimes, to be honest.

Note: I personally think that we shouldn’t base our opinions about Arabic countries on books like this.

This might be a surprise for you but I read this book five times and I’m pretty sure I’ll read it again in the future. “Romeo and Juliet” is, in my opinion, a masterpiece! An amazing thing, not only the whole story but also the way it was written. I don’t think I have to say too much about it because at least most of you know. But for these who only saw a movie, I highly recommend you read the book too!

The most important book I read in my life so far is the one from Thomas Gordon called “Parents Effectiveness Training”. Yes, this book is mostly focused on a kid-parent relations, explaining that kids are humans too who have their own opinions, beliefs and feelings but it all is about our relationships with friends, husband, wives and so on as well. This book put my whole life in a totally different light, on how I was with others and how I was treated as a kid. It happened a lot of times while reading it that I suddenly realized something from the past and everything was clear. My own behavior I didn’t understand became easy to get. It’s a very interesting book to read and I recommend it to everyone, even those who don’t plan on having children.

Yes, yes, I like these books too even though I didn’t want to read them for a long time. Seriously, for the longest time I didn’t want to read or watch “Twilight” because everyone everywhere talked about it. I thought that if something is so popular it means that someone paid for the promotion and the whole obsession isn’t true ;). Eventually though I decided to give it a try and… I liked it a lot. I read all the books within 6 days and I remember being at my grandmother’s and my sister was sitting by me and she said: “you’ll never stop reading it”. I don’t really know exactly why I liked it so much because it’s not that special but it’s so… different. I never read anything else about vampires before and it just went so easily, it’s written in a very simple way and it’s a good thing to read to relax. But the second part was boring, I need to admit that.

These books are the ones that I could remember now, I’m sure if I thought more about it the list would get longer but I didn’t want to wait with publishing this post anymore.

What are your favorite books? What would you recommend to me if I had time to read ;)?

Talk to you next time!
