The Bookclub – December

As you can see, this is a new addition to Paint me Yellow – it’s similar to The Playlist but this time we’re going to talk about things we read and enjoyed or we would actually love to have time to read! Let’s get started.IMG_20141202_143852

During this month, I only read one book – And the Mountains Echoed from Khaled Hosseini. It might be a little bit confusing at the beginning because there are a lot of characters and each chapter is dedicated to a time,a space and a story. Get it? I found the concept interesting. Furthermore, Hosseini is a bestseller author and I always get curious and start wondering why is the author so good (and I’ll probably end up buying a book). He’s genuinely good – trust me, all this fuzz about his books are worth it. Can’t wait to read another book from him!

This sad post from Zoela’s – it really made me think about the virtual communities.

Some advices from Michelle Phan about how to balance work with school

I also loved a post from ALO, one of my favourite on-line magazines: A letter to Every Freelancer

Hello everyone, for this post I have to definitely pick Wizard’s First Rule. Its author is Terry Goodkind and it’s the first book of a HUGE saga (REALLY HUGE, CHECK THE WIKIPEDIA) however it seems just an amazing story. Its genre is fantasy, my favourite, and as soon as me and Ângela finish buying all the Harry Potter books we might start buying the ones from this saga.

Let it Snow is a compilation of three intertwined holiday romances. The title is co-signed by the great John Green, along with the wonderful authors Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. Although the book has been around for 6 years now, it has only been translated to Portuguese this past month (and I have to say, the Portuguese cover is just gorgeous! Sadly, it isn’t the one in the picture). However, the timing could not have been better: this is a perfect Christmas read! When it’s cold and rainy outside, cuddling on the sofa with this little guy is sure to bring a smile to your face! The authors’ humor is very uplifting and full of Christmas cheer. Recommended to be accompanied by a good cup of hot cocoa 😉
