Monday Travels

Happy Monday friends! I hope you packed light and got some party clothes, cause this Monday we are in the some magical, beautiful world, where reality and supernatural combine!

So today we are in CHILE and we will explore:


Chillian-American writer Isabel Allende :
Isabel Allende ( August 2, 1942) is a Chilean-American writer. Allende, whose works sometimes contain aspects of the magic realist tradition, is famous for novels such as The House of the Spirits (La casa de los espĂ­ritus, 1982) and City of the Beasts (La ciudad de las bestias, 2002), which have been commercially successful. Allende has been called "the world's most widely read Spanish-language author". In 2004, Allende was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and in 2010, she received Chile's National Literature Prize. President Barack Obama awarded her the 2014 Presidential Medal of Freedom.


In one of the most important and beloved Latin American works of the twentieth century, Isabel Allende weaves a luminous tapestry of three generations of the Trueba family, revealing both triumphs and tragedies.

Here is patriarch Esteban, whose wild desires and political machinations are tempered only by his love for his ethereal wife, Clara, a woman touched by an otherworldly hand. Their daughter, Blanca, whose forbidden love for a man Esteban has deemed unworthy infuriates her father, yet will produce his greatest joy: his granddaughter Alba, a beautiful, ambitious girl who will lead the family and their country into a revolutionary future.

The House of the Spirits is an enthralling saga that spans decades and lives, twining the personal and the political into an epic novel of love, magic, and fate.


I saw the words magic, fate and revolution and thought, yup this is my book, I have to read it! I actually was in the book store today and this lady saw me looking at this book was told me it the best book she has ever read when she was about my age, and that it will change my life!

Now I'm not sure whether or not that was true, but the book sound really interesting!

Maybe we have someone who read it? If so please share :)

See you next Monday!
