Review: The Alchemist by Paulo Cohelo

Enchanting, Inspiring and Fantastic Novel

The last few days I have been captured by Paulo Cohelo’s books. As I mentioned in my monthly wrap for May’s readings, I admired Cohelo’s writing after reading”Veronika Decides to Die” and the incredible message I learned from it. So I figured I had to read Paulo Cohelo’s worldwide best-selling novel “The Alchemist.”

Review: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

This book has everything I love: fantasy, horror, romance, suspense, action, and humor.

“Sorcery of Thorns” captivated my attention immediately after reading the storyline. Margaret Rogerson created a fantastic world in which libraries store dangerous grimoires full of dark power and books have a tendency to transform into deadly demonic beasts. (Can you see why I love it yet? ).

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Do you ever find one of those books that’s so surprising you can’t stop reading once you start? 

“Shatter me” was definitely like that for me. I think I read 60% of the book in one sit. And I have confirmed that a book that grips you and after reading it you wish you’d read it more slowly, then that is, without doubt, a good book.
