What are you currently reading?

France on the Brink

An excellent presentation of the economic and political situation of France right now:
why does France looks so attractive to tourists,
while the French are so pessimistic and so critical of their government
and all that’s going on in France?
That’s what the author is trying to explain.
Excellent!
I will review this book for France Book Tours on Aug 6

***

What did you recently finish reading?

The Cheshire Cheese CatI rarely read children books,
but I won this one during Armchair BEA,
and just received it!
It’s really a cute smart story about a cat
and his friends and enemies
in a very popular British inn,
where a certain Mr Dickens comes often
to try to write and find inspiration
for the 2 first lines of his novel…
Very well done!

***

What do you think you’ll read next?

Madame Picasso
I will probably start reading Madame Picasso,
a historical novel on
Eva Gouel,
the woman who stole Picasso‘s heart!’
My review is scheduled for Aug 28
for a book tour
on Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tour

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

new eiffel 4

I am really grateful to Hesperus Press for contacting me and offering me the first volume in the series Commissaire Lupin: Death in Pont-Aven, a mystery taking place in France, but originally written in German!

Commissaire Georges Lupin, a character à la Maigret, is enjoying a quiet time at a local café in Concarneau, Brittany, when he hears about the murder of an old hotel owner in Pont-Aven: Pierre-Louis Pennec, 91. Why on earth would one want to kill an old man?
We follow Lupin day after day, as he tries to figure what happens and why, follows false leads, and discovers another murder… Coincidence? Connection?

Bout of Books 11

Bout of Books 11

 The Bout of Books read-a-thon
is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender
and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal.
It is a week long read-a-thon
that begins 12:01am Monday, August 18
and runs through Sunday, August 24
in whatever time zone you are in.
Bout of Books is low-pressure,
and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week.
There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize,
but all of these are completely optional.
For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates,
be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
- From the Bout of Books team

Their schedule will be up soon.

My goal is to read 85 pages/day so with a total of 595 pages, higher than my usual daily average.

Now, what will I be reading? Probably from some of these titles:

  1. Edwin: High King of Britain, by Edoardo Albert

  2. Lies Told in Silence, by M.K. Tod

I will also try to participate in some mini challenges and twitter parties.

I will also organize a giveaway with a choice or 4 or 5 books, so be sure to come back!
