Today‘s lunch menu:
Baked chimichangas & a Christie book!

Started the audiobook of Poirot #1. So much more fun to hear someone narrate this mystery with all the right accents!

Side note: The picture is from the Skinnytaste recipe I used to make my meal (my chimis didn‘t turn out as pretty, but tasted delish!). Recipe link below ⬇️

Super cute, super fast read about Goldie Vance, girl detective. The retro style gives off big Nancy Drew energy, but Goldie and her friends are super modern. A fun mystery adventure series that I‘ll definitely have to continue reading!

I don't mind if you don't like my manners. They're pretty bad. I grieve over them during the long winter evenings.

Maigret had been sent in disgrace from Paris to a backwater fishing community for an unexplained infraction (published in 1942 during the Nazi occupation of France, perhaps this was Simenon's way of avoiding Wehrmacht entanglements for his hero and himself?)
Maigret's boredom is alleviated by a tipoff from the local busybody about a corpse she's seen through her neighbour's back window. It's not just the fish that stinks in this excellent mystery!

The slow pace of the plot bugged me. A lot. Carl is not a likeable characters. Few characters are in this thriller. I kept on reading, a reader I trust wrote a good review, so I persisted. I am glad I did. At around 2/3 the plot picked up, the action got into high gear. The writer does thriller really well, mystery, not so well. #summerreading #readinginFrenchJuly

I will be honest, I don't understand half the things Dirk Gently says, but I still want to read more of him, just for his childish, quirky mannerisms and the whole 'HOLISTIC' thing. I enjoy it very much.
