Lovely L's #atozchallenge

Day 14 of the April A to Z Challenge

A Book Extravaganza - featuring classics and some of my favorite books

Classic: Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Synopsis: In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.

My Favorite: Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold



  1. I've heard of it, but never got around to reading it. Not sure if I want to.

  2. Found myself wondering what Cholera had to do with it. Will have to look it up. Thanks for the quick overview.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I actually don't know what cholera has to do with it either, since I never read it. You're welcome. ~Meg
