The books I’ve read recently and loved

It’s about time to share what books I was reading recently. I still can’t believe how rich in books this year turned out to be! I used to read up to five books or so per year during the past six years and now… Now I read much more and I love it!

The books I’ve read recently were all good (the not-so-good ones were returned to the library) and here they are!

The Day Lions Eat Salad (Le jour où les lions mangeront de la salade verte) by Raphaelle Giordano

A lovely story where the knowledge of a psychology book and a romantic story go very well together. Instead of writing another psychology book, the writer turned it into an easy-to-read novel which I read within a couple of days. If you like popular psychology books but are a little bit tired of them, this is a perfect read for you.

The Longevity Diet (La dieta della longevità) by Valter Longo

We are what we eat – that’s what this book is all about. If you’re interested in learning about your body, digestive system and want to know what diet can prolong your life.

The Tobacconist (Der Trafikant) by Robert Seethaler

A short but incredibly interesting story about a young man, Vienna before WWII and the great people of that time… Don’t want to spoil so that’s all you need to know about this book. And that it’s truly worth reading.

NLP: The Essential Guide to Neuro-Linguistic Programming by Tom Hoobyar, Tom Dotz, Susan Sanders

Well, the NLP guide is definitely a wonderful book full of great treasures about our inner selves. It takes time to read it and even more time to change yourself accordingly but step by step everything is possible. Loved this book and will read it again after a couple of months.

Hold Back The Stars by Katie Khan

While reading lots of serious books, I also got this romantic novel to rest me a little bit and kinda enjoyed it but, honestly, it wasn’t the best novel I read, probably I prefer storylines set in the past instead of the future. Well, but if you like futuristic stories, I think you might enjoy this one.

 The Little Book of Hygge. Danish Secrets to Happy Living by Meik Wiking

This is a coffee-table must-have book! I read it right before we started our home renovation and it was probably the best decision I could make. There’s nothing unexpected or spectacular in this book but we always forget the simple things and that’s what this book is about: cozy corners at home, warm teacups, and candle lights… Loved it!

Currently reading: The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank, Farewell Summer by Ray Bradbury and The Name of the Rose (Ul nome della rose) by Umberto Eco.
