2018: March-April wrap-up

March-April 2018 wrap-up

Sometimes, life goes too fast…
Reading time is getting scarce these days, and let’s not talk about blogging time…

So here are the few books I read these past 2 months: 

11  books:
8 in print 
with 2,230 pages, an average of 36 pages/day
3 in audio
with 34H36, an average of 33mn/day

So more audio time than usual, but about half less reading time!

7 in mystery

  1. Look For Her, by Emily Winslow – for review
  2. Temps glaciaires, by Fred Vargas – audio in French
  3. I Let You Go, by Clare Mackintosh
  4. Portrait of a Murderer: A Christmas Crime story, by Anne Meredith – ebook, for review
  5. Nymphéas noirs, by Michel Bussi – audio in French
  6. Gallic Noir, vol 1, by Pascal Garnier – for review
  7. Debout les morts, by Fred Vargas – audio in French

2 in “graphic novels”:

  1. Baby Monkey, Private Eye, by Brian Selznick = actually a picture book
  2. Monet, Itinerant of Light, by Salva Rubio (and EFA) = actually a biography

1 in literary fiction:

  1. The Bridge on the Drina, by Ivo Andric – for Classic Club

1 in science-fiction/dystopia/fantasy:

  1. Ankaran Immersion, by Will Weisser

My favorites in March-April

  Les nymphéas noirs   Portrait of a Murderer
