Recommended Books

Ok, I don’t claim being a bookworm, but I love a good read. There are a few books that I’ve read and adored to the point that I’m willing to read them over and over again… this kind of books is what you’ll find listed below.
So whether you’re looking for a new book to read, or thinking of a special gift for someone, you’re welcome to browse along…

  • “In Search Of Fatima: A Palestinian Story”: my all-time favourite! I LOVED this book that I actually turned back to page 1 as soon as I finished reading! Yeah, it’s that good! Read my review.
  • “The Undomestic Goddess”: Extremely addictive, a crazy character, very exciting twists with really funny situations!
  • “Shopaholic And Sister”: If you’re in the mood for a light romantic comedy, this is it, it’s so much fun, you feel you’re actually watching a movie and can’t wait to see the ending!
  • “Can You Keep A Secret”: Extremely FUNNY! Very realistic, you can imagine it happening to you so easily. And well, I was THIS CLOSE to getting caught reading it during my working hours… yep, you can’t let go unless you’re done!
  • “The Reader”: This bestseller tells the story of a 15-year old boy who falls in love with a 20 years older woman, their relationship grows, she enjoys him read her books, and one day she disappears… but she becomes a part of his life, which he can never let go.
    The book was originally written in German and was translated into around 35 languages because of its success. I read the German version called “Der Vorleser”.
  • The Book of Tea: whether you’re a tea lover or not, reading this book will definitely force you to fall in love with good quality tea.
    While teaching you about the history of tea, its origin and how it spread around the globe, the book magnificently describes the Japanese aesthetics and culture particularly reflected in the traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony.
    In short, a very educational, enjoyable and delicious book.

This is not a comprehensive list, it’s just what came to my mind at the moment. So keep checking for new recommendations 😉
