Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.
Today, my Teasers are from
First chapter First Paragraph
It’s dark already though the curtains aren’t closed yet. Dry snow soundlessly strikes the window and bounces off, some of it mounting on the sill like ask. There’s the feeling of being slowly buried, of airlessness, and I’ve found myself pulling at the top of my blouse. pp.65-66

Tess of the D’Urbervilles was a favorite read in my teen years. So when I received Max Gate for review, I was intrigued. Written by a New Zealand author (my second author of this country, after Chad Taylor), this short historical novel focuses on the last days before Thomas Hardy’s death and the decisions around his place of burial.

Orthodox Spirituality = almost done, the end on Love is so intense and beautiful! Mid-Life Spirituality and Jungian Archetypes = timely! Solid psycho-spiritual (Christian) book Purgatorio = humming along with The Divine Comedy – vol 2 Max Gate = literary/historical fiction on Thomas Hardy’s last days and the author is from New-Zealand, cool!
The Nature of the Beast = see below why I won’t be listening to it, but read it Too Dark To Sleep = offered by the author at Printers Row Lit Fest All is Not Forgotten = received for review
CURRENT AND NEXT AUDIOBOOKS
The Long Way Home
= a new page in the life of Armand Gamache!
And alas, this will be the last audiobook of the series for me.
The narrator died,
and the other 2 narrators for next audio really don’t work for me at all.
They speak way too fast, too harshly,
not conveying the atmosphere of peace and goodness
that emanated from Armand with the voice of Ralph Cosham.
Very sad! Murder at the Lanterne Rouge
= I started listening to it last month, in between 2 books by Louise Penny.
Will go back to it, it’s a series I also enjoy very much.
Each book is set in a different neighborhood of Paris
