The Zahir – #AtoZChallenge 2019

Let me be honest. I knew two letters would likely cause me trouble when I took up this theme of favorite books. And I was right. I’d like to complete my AtoZ though, so I’m taking a slight deviation from the theme. For these two letters, I’m gonna share from my To-Be-Read instead of Read-and-Loved.

The first book I read of Paulo Coelho was the book many might call his magnum opus, The Alchemist. That was a book I’d say was inspiring. So I continued perusing his work. I loved some books like Eleven Minutes and Like The Flowing River. I didn’t like Adultery. But I don’t think every author can churn out amazing books each time, so I want to try this book of his next.

Why this is part of my TBR?

This book has been reocmmended to me by a friend since quite a while now. She’s more of a fan of Coelho than I am, so I think I can trust her recommendation. The author’s work isn’t new to me so I think I can expect it to be a decent read for sure. I read the blurb and loved the plot idea too, so finger’s crossed that I don’t regret this decision later.


This is the 10th year of the #AtoZChallenge and my tenth year attempting it. My theme this year is Books – Read and Loved. As evident by the theme, I am going to write on books I’ve read and loved.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
