    The giveaway for December at France Book Tours is very special and now available.

  • As part of the Classics Club, we got our new spin – see here what I got!

  • My public library is organizing a winter challenge: we had to mention our favorite genres and list our last 4 books read, and they pick a book for us to read and review in December. Isn’t that fun? I’m totally thrilled and will tell you on Monday what they picked for me.

2017: October wrap-up

October 2017 wrap-up

I took some time off this past month, so for me, it means less books read: if I’m on vacation, I walk a lot, in nature or else, and then I’m totally spent and sleep. So this month is my lowest stat for the year so far.
BUT we did listen to 2 audiobooks, as it was a long drive

Here is what I read this past month:

5  books:
3 in print
with 1,112 pages, that is: 35 pages/day
+ 2 audiobooks
with 20H20, that is: 39 mn/day
.

3 in mystery:

  1. Moriarty, by Anthony Horowitz – audiobook
  2. The Resistance Man, by Martin Walker – audiobook
  3. Concerto pour quatre mains, by Paul Colize

1 in science-fiction:

  1. Artemis, by Andy Weir – ebook

1 in nonfiction:

  1. Le Regard du Ressuscité, by Archimandrite Gabriel

 

My favorite in October

Concerto pour quatre mains

Reading Challenges recap

Classics Club: 24/50 (until end of 2018)
Back to the Classics Challenge: 6/6-12

Total of books read in 2017 = 92/100 – so 8 books ahead so far

Number of books added to my TBR in October= 20

Blog recap in October

  • As part of my vacation, I went to Three Pines/Knowlton, in Quebec. It was so neat, we decided to stay and spend a night there. I hope to have soon some time to tell you all about it, with pictures!

2017: September wrap-up

September 2017 wrap-up

Not too many books read this month, but a good average for my usual standard.

Here is what I read this past month:

8  books:
6 in print
with 1,559 pages, that is: 51 pages/day
+ 2 audiobooks
with 8H54, that is: 17 mn/day
.

5 in mystery:

  1. Merle, by Angela Wren – ebook
  2. The Frenchman, by Lise McClendon – ebook
  3. Glass Houses, by Louise Penny
  4. The Hidden Keys, by André Alexis – audiobook
  5. Requiem in Yquem, by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noel Balen – ebook

Fantasy/classic:

  1. The Golden Key, by George MacDonald – audiobook

Magical realism:

  1. Sourdough, by Robin Sloan – ebook

Orthodox dystopia/YA:

  1. Icon, by Georgia Briggs

 

My favorites in September

    Glass Houses  Icon

A few notes:

  1. It was really hard to pick up 2 favorites this month. I also enjoyed a lot The Hidden Keys, and the much expected Sourdough, by the author of Mr Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore

  2. As you know, I rarely read dystopia or YA, but Icon is UN-BE-LIE-VA-BLE: it was highly recommended by several people at Church. It is very unique, as it is is a REAL dystopia and YA novel, but with Christian Orthodox themes! So so well done!!
