Cait (clickcait) | 480 comments That's a good start. I'll be interested to see what else you add to your list. :-)

Good luck with the challenge.

Yasmina | 74 comments I just love Veronica Decides to Die, though it is not my favorite for Paulo! I hope you will enjoy it! Happy reading!

message 4: by Allie (new)

Allie I'm really looking forward to this one. :) I've had it sitting, unread, on my shelf for far too long.

If you had to pick a favorite Coelho, which one would it be?

message 5: by Yasmina (last edited Jan 22, 2015 01:29AM) (new)

Yasmina | 74 comments My favorite is Brida!
But still I have his latest too books – Adultery and Manuscript Found in Accra – sitting on the shelves waiting to be read! So I squeezed them into the challenge for weeks 36 and 45, respectively, maybe one of them will turn out to be my next favorite! Especially Manuscript Found in Accra since it takes place in my Hometown :)

Marah (eyreo) We have three books that are the same on our list so far. Outlander, Atonement, and P.S. I love you.
P.S. I love you was kind of slow moving at first, but it picks up. I liked how the author wrapped the story up. There were moments when I had to put the book down and I could feel my heart breaking for the character. I hope you like it!

You've got some great books on here so far. Good luck!
