If you like reading letters (like me) maybe you'll love reading some of these. If reading is not your thing maybe watch the movie?
The Guernesey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was recommend on Instagram by Dottie Angel. This is one of those books you'll read in one day. I loved it. It was such an easy and endearing story to read.
After reading the one above, I went looking for other books written in the "letter" format, and found 84 Charing Cross Road. I fell in love with Helene Hanff. What a strong woman, and the relationship she had with a bookseller in London was simply amazing. I gave Jane Austen a second chance because of her and I'm so grateful I did!!
Here and Now are letters between writers Paul Auster and J.M. Coetzee. These two writers amaze me. One a bit more than the other (but I won't tell you which). I just finished this book (it was a Christmas present), and I can't recommend it enough. It was a delight to read from beginning to end.
Letters of Note compiled by Shaun Usher, on the other hand is a beautiful book that contains all sorts of letters, from famous and not so famous people. It is not a book to be read in a sitting or for that matter in 2. Best to be read slowly and to admire each letter. Beautiful! I can't believe I got this one as a Christmas present (it is a bit expensive), but in my opinion worth it!
Mary and Max is a movie about two pen pals. It will make you laugh and cry and sometimes both at the same time. This was recommend by a dear pen pal, and I'm so happy I could get my hands on it!! What an amazing movie it is, seriously, money back guaranteed!
Do you have any recommendations for me??? I would love to know if you have any favorites.
Have a wonderful day.
Lots of love,
