I’m a bit behind with this post and it’s quite small compared to the other posts that I’ve done already, mostly because, as I’ll come to share with you at some point, things have been a bit of a roller coaster and I’m trying to get into some sort of rhythm. But there’s a few things I’ve read and hopefully you’ll find something that interests you! Let me know what you’ve been reading in the comments, whether it’s articles, books, magazines, etc.
I Am Zlatan by Zlatan Ibrahimović – I saved this to read on my flight home and it was the best choice I made. I mean, I did end up sitting there with all sorts of feelings and tingles and just wanted someone to share it with as I was sitting there by myself, but that’s because it was that good. Funny and serious and a little sad and completely written in a voice that could only be Zlatan’s, if you’re a fan of either football or autobiographies or just a really good read, I’d suggest this in a heartbeat. It was that good that I’d recommend it to my non-football friends. I really would. (Then again, I recommend football books to my non-football friends because I just do those sorts of things.)
The Lost Island by Gideon Preston and Lincoln Child – During my stint at the charity bookshop in Calahonda, there was a lot of Preston & Child that went through the shop. I didn’t pick one up, but when I was looking for something to read, the librarian recommended this one. And…I don’t get it? The hype over the authors or the books. I’ll give them that the storyline and plot twist really did catch me off guard and I really enjoyed the mythological twist, but the writing and the execution just left something to be desired.
