IT’S NOT SUMMER WITHOUT BOOKS
It’s already the middle of July. We haven’t had a spring this year and this summer is being very strange. As much as we want everything to go back to normal, we still have this silent virus among us, and we cannot let our guard down. This has caused many of us to cancel trips and choose to stay close to home and enjoy local tourism, which is never a bad option. And if we can also complement it with reading, so much better.
Spending a day on the beach reading Xulio R. Trigo’s novel, LA NOIA DE LA RESISTÈNCIA (“The Girl of the Resistance”), can be an ideal plan. Who doesn’t like to read a good love story set in a turbulent period? You can also spend a quiet afternoon in the mountains lying in a hammock in the shade and get to know the life of the French poet Rimbaud by reading Miquel Esteve’s latest novel, EL MISTERI D’ARTHUR RIMBAUD (“The Mystery of Arthur Rimbaud”). For those who choose to stay in the city, I recommend any of Carla Gracia’s works, such as EL ABISMO (“The Abyss”), a thriller that leaves no one indifferent, or SET DIES DE GRÀCIA (“Seven Days of Gràcia”), a historical novel that explains the Revolution of the Quintas led by the brave women of the time.
Another option is to travel through the books.For that reason I recommend you SAKURA LOVE, by Francesc Miralles, a book that points directly to the heart that proposes us a trip to Japan from the hand of an expert, an ideal reading to share and to comment in family. To finish, I recommend two exciting novels with intrigue and mystery. The first is EL TIGRE Y LA DUQUESA (“The Tiger and the Duchess”), by Jordi Solé, a work that tells us about the Pink Panthers, one of the most dangerous criminal gangs in the world. The other is UNA BALA CON TU NOMBRE (“A Bullet With Your Name on it”), by Susana Rodríguez, a thriller that will keep you up all night.
Summers without sun, without sea and without meeting friends are not summers. Neither are they without books. A book is the great companion in those moments of relaxation that help us to disconnect. How magical reading is and how nice it is to be able to enjoy it. Don’t miss out on one of the great pleasures and choose that novel that will make you vibrate this summer. Happy July full of books.
