August Read: One Hundred Years of Solitude

Last weekend I started reading One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. Reading a book of his was high on my to-read list and I finally chose one. The one I think is most well known.  I do really like it so far, there are exciting, romantic and violent parts in it. The thing I have to get most into is all the Spanish names! Luckily there's a family tree at the beginning of the book. And I don't think it can be as hard as remembering all the names from Anna Karenina!

Haven't read a classic in such a long time, so I'm more than excited for this one!

During my summer vacation to Morocco I read Eat Pray Love which I very much enjoyed. I loved the parts when a sentence was so well written, I to close the book to rethink about it myself. It's a really "get to know yourself" book without being too pushy about it. Some parts however I didn't like so much for example when Liz was so depressive. And some parts were to "flowy" for me, that is the "Pray" part.

But, altogether, I highly recommend this book for every woman of any age as it has beautiful parts in it which I hope to remember and maybe will help for me as well.

Have you ever read One Hundred Years of Solitude?
