Fall Break:
The most blissful times for teachers, my personal favorite break because I can shut down, recharge and catch up on life.
I am dog sitting so extra $$ for me
I have colored pages upon pages in my new coloring book all while listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (maybe I‘ll finally finish that series this year)
I‘ve crafted
I‘ve slept
and 2 days ago I dove into this quaint French love story💓

Book 6 in the Maigret Series. Written almost 100 years ago and they were much shorter books, but I really do enjoy these books. #Classics

9th book finished for #SummerEndReadathon #SeriesLove2023 @TheSpineView

kwmg40 I'm enjoying the Maigret books too. I've been trying to read them in French. It's a bit challenging for me, especially when Simenon uses slang that was commonplace 90 years ago. 😅 5mo
Andrew65 @kwmg40 Impressive! That would add an extra challenge 😳 5mo

#BookReport

Thalia was a so-so. The first part really dragged for me and I almost bailed but wanted to use it for 1957 #192025. The 2nd part was better but I didn‘t like anyone and hated the ending.

Best of the week was Search, Hijab Butch Blues and the Jane mystery. The Messy Lives of Book People holds the “most hated book of the year” spot to date. Starless Sea is a book I think I will love but wasn‘t connecting so back on the shelf for now

Cinfhen It seems like everyone in the #SundayBuddyRead HATED this one 👉🏽what was so awful about it??? 7mo
squirrelbrain What @Cinfhen said! 🤔 7mo

Bookwormjillk Me too @Cinfhen @squirrelbrain @TrishB I‘ve been watching that book get panned all week and I am so curious. 🤣 7mo
Deblovestoread For me it was an implausible plot with characters you just wanted to smack upside the head on a regular basis. The most throwable book I‘ve read in a while. @Cinfhen @squirrelbrain @TrishB @Bookwormjillk 7mo
Cinfhen Ha! Book sounds infuriating - credit that you all made it through to the end 😆 7mo

Commissaries Dupin leads a team investigating drowning deaths on the Glénan islands located off the coast of Brittany. Actually, the setting is one of the most interesting things about this mystery. I don‘t know whether it is the fault of the author or the translator, but the language is pretty stilted, and at times flat out awkward. Also really annoying are the excessive typos, sometimes over three per page: unforgivable in the first US edition!

bnp This review is so spot on! I missed the typos, but everything else she said was my reaction when I read it a few years ago. Anyone else know if the series gets any better? 8mo
CaitlinR @bnp Thank you! It will be interesting to hear about the later books in the series. 8mo

Maigret and the Yellow Dog | Georges Simenon

This Maigret story about a series of frightening events in a French seaside town seemed slow and meandering to me, but everything did come together in a complex and surprising way at the end.

Andrew65 Usual enjoy these but definitely have a different pace. Well done 👏👏👏 11mo
kwmg40 @TheSpineView @TheAromaofBooks Thanks for the encouragement! 11mo
kwmg40 @Andrew65 Simenon wrote so many Maigret mysteries that I guess at least a few of them will be duds, but overall, I love the series. 11mo
