Intermediate level books in spanish
Preferably books that would be easy to find in a library :)
So I ended up getting Twilight (don't judge me! haha) because I thought the sentences/vocab would be easy.
I would also get a dictionary ;). Usually books, maybe teen ones more, have sayings and sometimes have complicated words. I would also recommend The Hunger Games (Los Juegos del Hambre) in Spanish. I tried it and got through the first few pages. The vocabulary is a little tough and there are some sayings. I hope Twilight is good! :)
I am using my ipad to translate things I don't get. I would say I understand 1/2 sentences with little to no translation. A lot of the words I need to look up I remember learning in school but can't remember the translation haha. Hopefully that will improve. I saw hunger games there, maybe I will get it after I finish Twilight.
Try "Arrancame la vida" by Angeles Mastretta. It's a Mexican novel, kind of melodramatic, but it's written at a pretty manageable level and has a lot of dialogue. It has a first-person narrator, so it is as if someone is talking directly to you. Also, there was a film adaptation (the English title is "Tear this Hear Out," so you could watch the movie first and then you'd know the basic plot and characters before you try reading.
