11 Books to read in July 2015

Here are

the 11 books I plan to read in July!

  • I’m still reading a chapter a day of the first two books listed here below, and still translating #3 into French
  • Currently reading #4, The Cost of Courage, nonfiction on The German occupation of France during WWII. Excellent
  • The next 5 were already in line for June, but last minute books to review came up!
  • The last two are audiobooks – I’m half done with Murder in The Marais. I enjoy this series, each book set in a different neighborhood in Paris. Then back to Louise Penny!

  1. Oooh, like it! I used to devour the Druon books when I was a teenager – all that historical intrigue, wonderful! The Woman in White creeped me out when I was a child. I really mean to read Kent Haruf, and I really enjoy Louise Penny and Cara Black.

  2. This summer, the challenge is War and Peace….at 1800 pages! That, along with others. I have read a number of the books on your list.

  3. I loved The Illusion of Separateness and The Woman in White (which I’ve read twice). I’m sure you will enjoy them, too. I’d like to read more by Louise Penny. I’ve only read one of her Inspector Gamache (I think!) mysteries, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I’m so glad you have read The Red and The Black by Stendhal; I’ll need someone to discuss it with! It’s taking me a long time, but it’s so very interesting. I’m surprised how much correlates to 21st century America when it was meant to be a book of 19th century France!

    • I have so much enjoyed Simon’s previous novel, looking forward to this one. Just finished a book, so on my way to starting The Woman in White right now! Yes Louise Penny’s series with Gamache is worth reading from start to end, she does an amazing job with her characters.
      Hmm, sounds like I should reread Le rouge et le noir, to be able to talk about it. I read it over 30 years ago – oh boy, that makes me sound so darn old!!!

  4. I’ve read The Awakening by Kate Chopin. I don’t remember lot about it (I read it for a high school class), but I really enjoyed her short story Desiree’s Baby.
