CURRENTLY READING

     If you love me

the night before Talk to me

Don Quixote
For the 2nd part, I’m doing a read-along with Lory at The Emerald City. I’m sup[er super slow on this, the problem being, I read the book on the computer, as I have other books already going on 3 devices… and print of course. And all my work is already on the computer, so at the end of the day, either I’m tired of it, or I forget I need to spend more time there for Don Quixote!

If You Love Me: Serving Christ and the Church in Spirit and Truth
Wonderful book for all Christians.

The Night Before
I thoroughly enjoy this author. I have read All Is Not Forgotten and Emma in the Night.
In this one, it is so twisted, in a very good way, that so far, I don’t know if the main character is the culprit or the victim, or neither, or both!!

Talk To me
The subtitle tells you all this is about. So far, an excellent overview of the recent evolution in the field, and what’s coming.

READING NEXT

ExposedThe Sentence is Death

Exposed
This is for France Book Tours.
I have really enjoyed the author’s previous book, The 6:41 to Paris.

The Sentence is Death
This is the sequel to The Word is Murder. It should be good, just by judging by the clever titles. And this author is so amazing!

I should also be reading The Dream of the Red Chamber, by Cao Xueqin, which is my Classics Spin #20, but I still don’t know which edition I should choose!! Help please!

CURRENT AND NEXT AUDIOBOOKS

         Sang famille

Sang Famille
Ah ah! Estories now has this book published last year!
I thoroughly like the suspense and twists, well as always in Bussi’s books.

J’ai dû rêver trop fort
So cool! I had to wait for a year to get the previous one on EStories, but his latest is already available! You should check EStories for your audiobook subscription – this is the only way I can listen to contemporary French novels. Cheaper than competitive companies, great app.

  1. I love Don Quixote, both in the more well-known First Part and in the Second Part, the immensely witty and “modern” rejoinder to Don Quixote and Sancho’s many fans!

    I too am reading If You Love Me by Matthew the Poor. Wonderful and enriching, profound meditation on the meaning of true service. Thanks so much for recommending it last month!
