52 books in 52 weeks. November

"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live"  J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone




A book with magic 
Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone by J.K. Rowling (5) 
I grew up with the Harry Potter books. As a fan, there was not other book with magic that I could have choose.  The books are written in a way that fires your imagination, no matter your age and have positive advices. It was a truly magical reading experience again.

A book that scares you 
The man in the high castle by Philip K. Dick (3)
The premise of the book sound interesting, an alternative time after the World War II.  The Allies lost the war as a consequence the United States is divided between Germany and Japan.  I read the book because I want to watch the Amazon tv show and it felt me deeply disappointed.  I kept expecting more intrigue or adventure.  Not my kind of book. 

A book set during Christmas 
Halfway to nowhere by Elena Aitken (3)
It takes place in Halfway, Montana where Nikky and Becky, high school best friends, reunited after 10 years of secrets and untold stories.  This was a good book to read on rainy cold days with a blanket while having tea.

A banned book 
The color purple by Alicia Walker (4) 
This is a powerful and emotional book about 2 sisters, Nettie and Celie and how they grew up in rural Georgia in the 1930's.  I found it hard to read because is written in southern accent.  Although it is really well written i wouldn't recommend it, I found it really sad.

Other books I recommend:
