Maria Kasimova-Moase, Vasil Popov, Ray Bradbury, Haruki Murakami – 3 + 3 books for the weekend

Are there cozy books? In our humble understanding, there are titles that manage to envelop us like a warm blanket, warm us like a cup of aromatic tea and make us feel as comfortable as if we were sitting by a sunny window on a pleasant autumn day.

With the first real autumn days, we collect not three, but six, with which to spend a full weekend. Three are new book titles and the other three are audio books from Storytel’s rich catalog that we can listen to anywhere, anytime.

We continue on a “short form” wave with Vasil Popov’s stories. Real and magical intertwine in them, because against the background of the thorny lands, stories unfold in which people and their earthly longings collide with heroes from folklore and the power of age-old legends.
