Silvie (esilvie) Hola todos,

I've been trying to get into Spanish past year and I finally started to read a book, which I will even finish! It is 'Wonder. August y yo: Tres historias de Wonder. I find this level of Spanish just as I need, and I would love to start reading in Spanish more from now on.

Could someone recommend me some good books in Spanish, which are interesting but without complicated sentences/technical terms?

I would be very grateful for any suggestions!

Hola Gill, that would be perfect! Thank you very much :)

Gill | 5720 comments Silvie, maybe the best thing is if I tell you what books I have read whilst learning Spanish.

The first was Un príncipe en la nevera, a children's book that you can get on kindle. I had a great sense of achievement when I finished it.

Also I read Treasure Island, a chapter at a time, following each English chapter by the Spanish one from La isla del tesoro.

The other books I tried were the Geronimo Stilton books for children, but in Spanish. I don't know how easy they are to get hold of.

Hope that's some help to you.
