Ready for the Season?

20181203_130222Goodreads tells me that I have 7 finished books awaiting to be mentioned here, but I still have last minute shopping to do, food to buy and prepare, suitcases to pack and a pair of very excited kids. So I’m not sure when I’ll be able to sneek out for a break in the next few days.

Here are the titles I will tell you all about in the next few days weeks (no pressure!):

  • Pour qui meurt Guernica ? by Sophie Doudet : a YA historical novel during the Spanish war
  • The End of the World by Fabrice Colin : a YA apocalyptic novella (because with an atomic bomb, these things don’t tend to linger on very long, it seems)
  • Maigret Se Défend by Georges Simenon (Maigret on the Defensive)
  • Ainsi se tut Zarathoustra by Nicolas Wild : a graphic almost-fiction on Iran
  • Maigret and the Apparition by Georges Simenon (I could not stop at only one Maigret, right?)
  • Vengeance in Venice by Philip Gwynne Jones, a classic mystery with a gorgeous setting and lots of good food
  • Ton père by Christophe Honoré: on being a gay father

Let me wish you very happy holidays ! And to prepare you for sweet and delicious pleasures, let me bring you to a short virtual visit to the Paris department stores, with their famous holiday window displays. Their Christmas trees are each year different and gorgeous.
