TODAY I LIKE ... BEST SUMMER READS 2013

OK so the truth is summer is actually coming to an end so I guess I should have written this post in early June if I really wanted it to be useful... So you could have followed my recommendations and read these books while on holidays!! Anyway, I do believe we should read all year round so today I'm sharing you 2 books I've TRULY enjoyed reading this summer - and I have read half a dozen, so these are really good, they are probably in my top15... Time will say!

First comes a book that hasn't been published in English... Yet. It would be something like "The truth about Harry Quebert's case", by Joël Dicker (I've attached a pic of him because I find him very cute, and he's only 28). 30 years ago, in a beautiful little town in New Hampshire, a 15 year old girl alled Nola goes missing. The book tells her story. If you love crime & mistery books you will love it. It's the book everyone's talking about, go read it before it becomes a world wide bestseller. I bet Hollywood will turn it into a big movie in no time!




My second recommendation is for one of my fave writers ever: Lisa Jewell. I have read all of her books, starting with the unforgettable "Ralph's party". Many people name her a "chick lit" author but the truth is her writing has evolved as she  has grown older - wow, or maybe as I've grown older as well! Mind you, I love chick lit and I jump at anyone who dares critizise these kind of books! But sometimes I like to read something different and Lisa's talent to develop so compelling stories is so big that she has a top-top place in my list of fave authors in the world :) Her latest novel, "The house we grew up in" is just amazing. It's about family, about the past and the present, about forgiveness, about life in general and feelings in particular. You literally can't stop reading. Beautiful.

I hope you will be able to trust me and give these books the opportunity they deserve :)

    1. Hola!! Muchas gracias :)
      Pues es una escritora increíble! La fiesta de Ralph fue su primer libro y es genial ;-) Aunque mi favorito es "Vince & Joy". Que pases un buen día ;-)

  2. Yo acabé hace poco el de Joël Dicker y me encantó. Creo, como tú, que dentro de poco harán una versión cinematográfica. El segundo no lo he leído, pero me lo apunto. :)
