It’s a pure coincidence that I was reading simultaneously three books at the same time which depicts stories about love in the time of war. ”My children” by Guzel Yakhina followed ”Zuleikha opens her eyes”, the first book I’ve read by the same author. ”The Tattooist of Auschwitz” by Heather Morris ”found me” after my visit to the concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau and I was captivated by all the details I saw with my eyes there. The third book about lovve in time of war is the Bulgarian novel ”The Peach Thief” by Emilian Stanev.
3 books that stand out of my list – ”Eat, pray, love”, ”The Virgin Way”and ”How to Stop Worrying and Start Living”
I love reading and I always have a book in my bag just in case. However, three books stand out of my list not because they are classics or bestsellers, they certainly are, but because there is so much wisdom, hidden answers and concentrated knowledge on some interesting (at least for me) topics like depression and happiness, leadership and business, peace of mind and good will.
Recently I read the article ”22 Ambassadors Recommend the One Book to Read Before Visiting Their Country”, the list being very interesting and offering interesting books from countries like Azerbaijan and Bhutan among others. So I was thinking ”Which book would I recommend to somebody planning to visit Bulgaria?”. There are emblematic Bulgarian classics translated worldwide, but a big part of them talk about Bulgaria under the Ottoman occupation which is an interesting part of Bulgarian history and past, but it’s not really a suitable reading for somebody looking to discover Bulgarian traditions, beauty, and culture as a tourist.
