Book reviews for winter reading challenges

This 2018-2019 Winter, I had two special reading challenges:

  1. The Classics Club, Classics Spin #19
  2. A book chosen for me by the staff of my Public Library

So here is what I had to read:

  A Moveable Feast  Visiting Tom

A Moveable Feast, by Ernest Hemingway, published in 1964
Visiting Tom: A Man, a Highway, and the Road to Roughneck Graceby Michael Perry, published in 2012.

CURRENTLY READING

The Shadow Land  The only woman in the room

The Shadow Land:
Fascinating historical mystery set in Bulgaria. Like in The Historian, there’s a lot of travel, but this time only in Bulgaria, with amazing descriptions of the landscape and culture.

The Only Woman in the Room:
So far, I have read and enjoyed all the books by Marie Benedict, see for instance my review for the last one: Carnegie’s Maid.
I have only read 10% of this upcoming one, it starts slow.

CURRENT AND NEXT AUDIOBOOKS

Maman a tort  N'oublier jamais

Maman a tort:
Suspenseful mystery: a 3 year old keeps saying his Mom is not his real mom, he had another one before. Contains lots of fascinating data on child psychology.

N’oublier jamais:
The last audiobook by Bussi available so far! That’s VERY sad. He did publish another book recently, so I may end up reading it instead.
