The Shadow of the Wind - Lucia Graves, Carlos Ruiz Zafón This book is an absolute booklover’s dream. It includes suspense, mystery, loveable characters and to top it off beautiful language and prose. I went through an array of emotions reading this…from being intrigued to chuckling at Fermin’s antics to shock at the twist in the end. As a mystery book this just had me guessing from the first page and some parts even had me at the edge of my seat.

The characters themselves were beautifully developed. Everyone had a flaw and a vulnerability that just made them jump off the page. The plot was not fast paced until the last couple of chapters, but it was so well done that I didn’t mind the pace. Once I started reading I didn’t want to put it down. When I put it down I was thinking about the book and when I could get back to it.

A must read for booklovers!
