First Read

I hope you all enjoyed your New Year celebrations. We heard fireworks go off around our neighborhood and that was enough for me. I did welcome the year with a new book and though and it’s Despues del Invierno by Guadalupe Nettel.

I’ve had this book on my shelf for a couple of years and after thinking  a lot lately about how I want to read more books by Latin American authors, I thought let’s go for it.

This story is about Claudio and Cecilia. They live in different countries but of course their lives are going to intersect in Paris and they’ll fall in love. Sounds a bit like a romcom right? Nettel has won various literary prizes so I believe I’ll be in for a good read.

You can also find an English version of the book.

I’m also still carrying over several books from 2019 and don’t even get me started the number of books I finished and never got around to reviewing.

Next couple of posts I plan to tell you more about the reading challenges I’ll be joining and the new books I’ve added to my shelves.

For now, wishing you all a happy start to 2020!
