Hello dear Readers,
Hope you all are having a great day and enjoying the Holidays.
A few weeks ago I shared on my Instagram (thecostaricanwriter) what I was going to read for Christmas this year. That book is Christmas Stories by Paulo Coelho. His short Christmas Stories is what I usually read for the Holidays but if I'm not wrong this year was the first time they actually put the stories together on a book. I read it a few days ago and probably will read it again next week. I loved the book. I loved the fact it was a fast read, enjoyable and above all, stories with powerful and great messages, perfect for this time of the year when people always talk about love, helping other people, sharing, caring, spreading the Christmas's spirit. Each story with its own moral but with one thing in common, love.
I recommend this book for all the Paulo Coelho followers out there and for those interested on reading something different for Christmas. The book is available in Amazon and iTunes in 5 different languages.
That was going to be my only Christmas reading this year, however, thanks to the Instagram Book Community, I discovered another book that I will be reading for the Holidays, My True Love Gave to Me. They are short stories as well, compiled in one book. Stories from different authors: Stephanie Perkins, Rainbow Rowell, Laini Taylor, Gayle Forman and more, which I have noticed people like a lot and I am just curious to see how this reading goes for me. I borrowed the book from my local library, the US version of it. I have seen the UK version and the cover is gorgeous.
Once I finished the book, I will be sharing my thoughts.
