Nearly forgot to share the books I read last month and this month is over tomorrow! Better late than never I suppose!
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho - A short but rewarding read, I recommend everyone read this book about the importance of following your heart. It tells the tale of a boy who abandons his life a shepherd in search for a treasure shown to him in a dream. Throughout his journey he faces trials and tribulations that make him stronger. I don't want to ruin the end so that's all I'll say, but definitely read it.
How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, Sophie Mas - I was able to knock this book out in about 3 days. Humorous observations, dang good advice, and gorgeous photos. Made me want to pack my bags and fly to Paris, or alternatively, be born again as a Parisienne.
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter - I was very excited to read this tale spanning many decades and countries however I just simply could not get into it. After struggling through I felt entirely unsatisfied by it. So unfortunate as it made many best of lists, but perhaps it just was not my cup of tea.
I went to The Book Thing in Baltimore recently and found many a books to bring home, needless to say I'm pretty well stocked for a while now! x
