Gleidis’s Pen

Hey there Aesthetes! 

Today I’m bringing you a list of novels with characters that can’t even take their hands from their favorite books.


by Roald Dahl

Matilda is the story of a little girl with a thirst for knowledge, a special power, and an uncaring family. She loves books so much that she ventures out to a local library and creates a world of her own. Some crazy adventures, an evil principle, a loving teacher and some good friends will accompany Matilda in this story while she fights for what’s right and teaches some adults a few very important lessons. 

The Storied Life of A.J Filkry

By Gabrielle Zevin 

“We are not quite novels. We are not quite short stories. In the end, we are collected works”

A.J Filkry’s life was stroked with tragedy and ever since then, everything has lost meaning for him. He can’t find solace with his books anymore. On top of that, his book store is experiencing the worst sales in its history and he just lost one of his most precious possessions: a collection of Poe Poems. 

When a mysterious package arrives, it changes A.J’s life and the wonderful people that care about him. 

The Little Paris Bookshop

by Nina George

“There are books that are suitable for a million people, others for only a hundred. There are even remedies—I mean books—that were written for one person only… A book is both medic and medicine at once. It makes a diagnosis as well as offering therapy. Putting the right novels to the appropriate ailments: that’s how I sell books.”

Monsieur Perdu treats books like the perfect remedy; he knows exactly what book to recommend based on a reader’s particular needs. He has mended many broken hearts and souls, except his own. Monsieur is haunted by the abandonment of his greatest love and ever since then, he has held onto a letter she left him. However, he has never dared to open it. Until one day, he finally does open it and sets on a journey to the South of France to discover the end of that story and his long-lost love. All of this with the help of a bestselling but blocked author and an Italian Chef.
