CURRENTLY READING

     Le temps retrouvéToward the endless day

The Sword of the Maiden  How To Talk About Places You've Never Been

Confessions of a Young Novelist

Le Temps retrouvé= excited to be finally reading the very last volume of In Search of Lost Time!
Toward The Endless Day= awesome biography of the most famous French Orthodox woman theologian.
The Sword of the Maiden = I usually do not read time travel, but this is so so well done!
And fabulous historical novel and mystery at the same time.
I loved so much book 1 in the series, The Keys of the Watchmen,
I’m thrilled to read the sequel. So far, just as fabulous!
I know, this is ridiculous to have so many books going on at the same time,
but, I can’t resist when something good jumps at me!
How To Talk About Places You’ve Never Been = by a French author I’m just discovering!
Fabulous reflection on writing, on fiction and reality, with great wit!
I savor it like good wine, one chapter/day!
Confessions of a Young Novelist = since the regrettable passing away of the Master, Umberto Eco,
I have read a few amazing essays by him.
And then I saw this book. I’m reading also just a few pages a day.
So deep and funny, as he knew how to write

Too Close to the Edge = Netgalley has another by Pascal Garnier available!

The World Between Two Covers, by the blogger who read one book

hopefully I will finally read it this month!

  1. So many excellent choices, and ones I want to put on the top of my TBR. Especially How To Talk About Places You’ve Never Been and The World Between Two Covers. I too was sad to learrn of Eco’s passing. The selection you made among his works seems an excellent way to remember him. And I agree about The Sword of the Maiden: it’s keeping up that high pitch of interest and excitement of the first book!

    • wow, good luck. I don’t think I would ever want to read Proust in English, must be tough! I think his best book is book 1 anyway, so you my not have to read the whole 7 books. Some are super boring, and I DO love books where nothing happens!
