This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.
The nonfiction book, a graphic biography of Claude Monet, was extremely well done, and gorgeous. I listened to this amazing thriller by Michel Bussi. I listened to the original in French, but I assume the English translation is just as good. It’s all set in Giverny, Monet’s village. If you have not read Bussi yet, it’s time to start!
BOOK PAIRING #2
Conan Doyle for the Defense is an excellent presentation of how the author did real life investigation, using Sherlock Holmes‘s techniques. It’s also a great social study.
So obviously to go with it, I highlight the very first story with Holmes. I read all his books with Sherlock Holmes in 2017, short stories and novels.
BOOK PAIRING #3
The Piano Shop on the Left Bank is a beautiful journey of (re)discovery of musicin one’s life, with tons of fascinating on piano making and tuning. Even though it’s not exactly the same type of music, if you are a music lover, you will enjoy Bel Canto, as music and singing help people communicate in a tragedy.
