I love reading. While I am travelling I always take a book with me. Very often I read books about people and places that just fuel me with wanderlust. I would like to share with you my last list of books that will definitely make you look for a purpose while you head to your next destination.
I speak French and decided to make a when Frenchie in me is reading book selection. I worked in Alliance francaise in Varna, Bulgaria in the past and there was a big library with plenty of classic and modern French and Francophone literature. As Alliance francaise organized a lot of cultural events, we also invited many famous writers and authors to be our guests and make workshops around their books. I met some of the people mentioned below like Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt and Frederic Beigbeder in person and had copies of their books autographed specially for me! What an honour!
The Winter of our Discontent by John Steinbeck is the first and the only Steinbeck’s book I read so far. Before immersing myself into sharing my impression of this book, I would like to say some words on how I was recommended the book and why I started reading it…
The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery is one of the most intellectual, funniest and brilliant books I’ve ever read! The book is a bestseller and it’s translated into many languages for a reason! A movie based on the book has been also released.
