A Very French Christmas: The Greatest French Holiday Stories of All Time | Jean-Philippe Blondel, Guy de Maupassant, Irne Nmirovsky, Anatole France, Alphonse Daudet, Dominique Fabre
post image
Panpan

This was up and down for me. A couple of the stories were good, festive and thoughtful, quiet and heartwarming. More were sad, dark and showed a starker side of humanity. And there was one that was so horrid and racist I couldn‘t finish it. Maybe some were perfectly French, but not for me. I did like the #audio narration. 26 pts #wintergames2021 @Clwojick #mistletoemaniacs #bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

This book weaves together many worlds: natural, mythical, & human, in a beautiful & compelling way. Sharing her knowledge as a scientist, naturalist & Native woman, I was inspired and informed about our world and what we can do to support it for future generations of living things-human and non human. We only have one planet and it is up to us, now, to protect it. I highly recommend this book, it is as gorgeous as it is important. Great on #audio.

Book 200 of 2021! This wasn‘t a favorite but interesting enough to keep me reading. I like the hero but the heroine was a bit whiny, though she did toughen up by the end. The Scottish/English/Jacobite intrigue made it worthwhile for me. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

Ran/walked a 5K this morning and finished off this thriller for #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks I love the setting-Baltimore in the 60s, divorcée finding her way into the newsroom, so many different voices represented. Really compelling read! And all these #audiobooks have kept me walking, down 62 pounds this year in part because of all of the walking and listening thanks to #BFC21 @wanderinglynn

My goodness. Deeply disturbing, this book is dark. Firmly in the horror camp which I don‘t read often. The writing is crisp, authentic, and fantastic. Just amazing! Parts are really hard to get through-raw and vivid and so upsetting. Violent, harm on the page to people and animals-this one is tough, y‘all. But the story? Simply amazing. And good on #audio

So, so good. An intimate and exciting thriller and an unexpected joy to have much of it set where I live in Austin Texas. Love that!

Interesting. Loved the bookstore setting in Denver and the slow burn of the mystery. Didn‘t live how one dimensional some of the characters were, others were more fully crafted so it seemed a little disjointed. I did enjoy it though and it was good on audio. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
