My Top 5 Books of 2017

There are only a few days left in 2017,  therefore it is time for me to tell you what books I liked the most this year! I have read 24 books in 2017 so far.

This book tells us a story of a group of people during and after the Portuguese dictatorship, that lasted 40 years.

3. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling 


I really don’t have to tell you what this book is about.

2. The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon by Richard Zimler


This book is about Berekiah who’s a secret Jew in Portugal of the 16th century. His family declared that they converted and were “New Christians” after 1492, but they never stop professing their beliefs.


1. Feel Me Fall by James Morris


A plane crashes in the Amazon jungle, Emily and her five friends are the only survivors. This book is the story of how that came to be.
