The top 10 books I plan to read
in May!

CURRENTLY READING

   paradise-lost  Regard du Ressuscité
My Cousin Rachel  Manderley Forever

The Novel of the Century

Paradise Lost
= still enjoying it, a few pages at a time
Regard du Ressuscité
= Orthodox book in French, received for review,
on icons
My Cousin Rachel

= for the Classics Club,
started last month for an event I actually missed
Manderley For Ever
= Tatiana de Rosnay is totally bilingual. She writes some books in French, some in English.
She wrote this biography of Daphne du Maurier in French,
and I watched a French TV literary program last year where she presented her book.
It sounded so good, but I didn’t get to read it.
So when I discovered it was now out in English, and on Netgalley, I knew time had come.
Plus, pretty cool to be reading it at the same time as My Cousin Rachel!
The Novel of the Century
= isn’t it excessive to read so many books at the same time?
Yes, BUT how can you resist a book by David Bellos
(his book on translation was fantastic) AND on Les Misérables?
Saw it at the library and it begged me to take it home
