Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry My rating: 4 of 5 stars Just what I needed. Light toned, makes you smile yet also makes you rework your perspective of what is important in life. Reading this book felt like getting in touch with my childhood. Definitely recommended.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden My rating: 4 of 5 stars Another book and yet another perspective. I never had any understanding of that era in that particular place, or how Geisha were brought up. This is not one of those fairy tales if that's what you are looking for. It is for … Continue reading Memoirs of a Geisha -Arthur Golden
