5 books to read this Summer

Hello everyone!
After long time of writing hauls and outfit posts I decided to write you another “book post”. I’ve read few books lately and I want to show you my thoughts about them or just to give you some inspiration of what to read.

Richard Paul Evans : The Christmas Box
''After living in southern California, Rick and Keri return to Utah with their four-year old daughter Jenna to start up a formal wear rental business many years ago. The couple answers an ad for a live-in family to prepare meals and do light household chores for a wealthy, elderly woman, but the details are not given. The arrangements are made and the family enjoys staying with their new matriarch, Mrs. Mary Anne Parkin in her spacious Victorian mansion. Rick begins hearing music and is drawn by an angel to examine items in the attic of the house. He finds a music box with the Nativity etched onto its surface. Inside are intimate letters dated from years before.''

I like everything that is Christmassy and that’s why I only liked this book. But all in all, I really haven’t find anything interesting about this book. I find it a litlle bit too short and without any plot.

Victoria Hislop : The Island
''On the brink of a life-changing decision, Alexis Fielding longs to find out about her mother's past. But Sofia has never spoken of it. All she admits to is growing up in a small Cretan village before moving to London. When Alexis decides to visit Crete, however, Sofia gives her daughter a letter to take to an old friend, and promises that through her she will learn more.

Arriving in Plaka, Alexis is astonished to see that it lies a stone's throw from the tiny, deserted island of Spinalonga - Greece's former leper colony. Then she finds Fotini, and at last hears the story that Sofia has buried all her life: the tale of her great-grandmother Eleni and her daughters and a family rent by tragedy, war and passion. She discovers how intimately she is connected with the island, and how secrecy holds them all in its powerful grip.''

One of currently my favourite books is this one. I liked every part of it, it so interesting, emotional and yet based on a real story. There is also a movie based on this book which is pretty great. I highly recommend it to you and my grandma is going to read it now so I hope she’ll like it as much as I did.

Simonida Milojković : Ljubav u doba kokaina
 ''Ljubav u doba kokaina je dramatična i porazna ispovest beogradske studentkinje, koju je njen mladić gurnuo u pakao droge. Glavna junakinja Nina zaljubljuje se u svog vršnjaka, zavodnika i kozera Marka, i postaje zavisna od njegove pažnje i ljubavi. Ali njen svet se ruši kad je se on zasiti i kad je ostavi. Spremna je na sve da bi ga ponovo vratila, a kada joj on u jednom noćnom klubu ponudi kokain, bez razmišljanja prihvata: tako se njenoj zavisnosti od ljubavi pridružuje i zavisnost od teških droga...

Ni u svom novom romanu autorka Grabljivice ne preza da stvari nazove svojim imenima, stvaraju
ći uverljive i prepoznatljive likove jedne izgubljene generacije u zemlji bez nade i iluzija, i vodeći radnju lako i jednostavno. Posebnu boju ovom novom romanu o stranputicama današnjih mladih ljudi daju neposredan ispovedni ton glavne junakinje, obraćanje bez uvijanja i prećutkivanja, otvoreno i bez kajanja.'' *summary on Croatian because it's a Croatian book''

This book was so interesting to read but the only thing is that it was so similar to the book I’ve already read. However it was so realistic and I really liked it.

Guillaume Musso : Because I love you 
''It is the story of Layla, a five-year-old girl, who disappears in a supermarket in Los Angeles. Her parents find themselves unable to cope with her disappearance and break up due to the unbearable pain resting in their hearts and eyes. However, five years later, Layla is found in the same place where she went missing. She’s alive but speechless, and her disappearance, as well as the reason behind her return, remain unknown throughout the novel.''
At first, when I was starting with reading I thought this is going to be some love story, but actually it wasn’t. I liked the story of it and I enjoyed in ending.

John Marrs : The One 
 ''A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you’ll be matched with your perfect partner the one you are genetically made for.

That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.

Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…''

Okay, wow wow wow! I really enjoyed this book and it kept me interested whole time. This gets my full reccomendation!
