Hello everyone!
I'm back today with a dose of some great books I've read during the quarantine and holidays.
I really hope you'll manage to find a book that will maybe interest you so much, that you'll decide to read it yourself.

But before I start I wanted to thank you so much for the support you gave me under my last article. Now I PROMISE to keep up and write them more often (even if it will make me fail school :))

And now let the fun begin:

1. "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen

"Pride and Prejudice" is a romantic-drama novel written by Jane Austen and first published in 1813. Events described in the book are set in the early 19th-century (mostly) in Derbyshire and Hertfordshire, England. Austen tells two beautiful love stories, both include two eldest Bennet sisters: Elizabeth and Jane. While Jane has to overwhelm the obstacles which are thrown on her path to marriage and happiness, Elizabeth's prejudices are challenged as she falls in love with Mr. Darcy.

The book warmed up my heart so many times and kept me excited about what will happen next. I'm definitely going to come back to it often. Austen is playing with the reader by giving amazing plot twists, which in my opinion is very hard to do without getting the reader bored.

2. "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" by J.K.Rowling

I actually read the first three books from the HP series but "Thr prisoner of Azkaban" was definitely my favorite. I think that most of you know HarryPotter books and there is no need for me to write a bigger description. But a little sneak peek on what's happening in the third volume.

The book follows Harry Potter, a young wizard, in his third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Along with his friends Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger, Harry investigates Sirius Black, an escaped prisoner from Azkaban, the wizard prison, believed to be one of Lord Voldemort's old allies.

3. "Call me by your name" + "Find me" by Andre Aciman

"Cal me by your name" is a 2007 novel by Andre Aciman, while "Find me" is its sequel from 2019. The first book centers on a blossoming romantic relationship between an intellectually precocious and curious 17-year-old American-Italian Jewish boy named Elio Perlman and a visiting 24-year-old American Jewish scholar named Oliver in 1980s Italy.

And as for the second book, it follows the event which is happening 5, 10 and 20 years after "Call me by your name". It is divided into 4 parts: Tempo, Cadenza, Capriccio, and Da Capo.

Tempo - (10 years after the affair) Elio's father, Samuel Perlman is about to meet with his son in Rome. On his way in the train, he meets Miranda, a young photographer in who he soon after falls in love with.

Cadenza - (5 years after the affair) Elio is already a successful pianist. In Paris, he meets Michael, an older man with whom he establishes a short affair.

Capriccio - (20 years after the affair) Oliver lives a 'happy' and stable life in New England with his wife. One day he becomes aware of his misery and decides to travel back to Europe.

Da Capo - Oliver arrives in Italy and unites with his old-time lover Elio. Elio's father, unfortunately, is long gone, but his partner Miranda and their son are still present in the house.

4. "The Guernsey Literature and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Schaffer and Annie Barrows

It's a historical novel published in 2008, which was also turned into a movie starring Lily James in 2018 (not a good one, honestly).

A correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton and members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi-occupied Guernsey Island. When an idea for a book catches Juliet, she goes to visit the island, making life-long friends and taking life changing steps along the way.
This book is told by way of letters, and as the reader, you become enchanted by the writers of them and the love Juliet comes to feel for each of the Islanders; Dawsey Adams, Amelia Maugery, Isola Pribby, Eben Ramsey, Kit, and Elizabeth McKenna.

Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of books written in a letter type, but this one truly won my heart.

5. "A very large expanse of sea" by Tahereh Mafi

Shirin is never surprised by how horrible people can be. She’s tired of the rude stares, the degrading comments - even the physical violence - she endures as a result of her race, her religion, and the hijab she wears every day. So she’s built up protective walls and refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt her. Instead, she drowns her frustrations in music and spends her afternoons break-dancing with her brother.

But then she meets Ocean James. He’s the first person in forever who really seems to want to get to know Shirin. It terrifies her - they seem to come from two irreconcilable worlds - and Shirin has had her guard up for so long that she’s not sure she’ll ever be able to let it down.

Trust me, you won't be able to put this book down (I read it in two days).
