Can you believe it’s time to wrap up July? I had a good reading month and finished four books: The Only Child by Mi-Ae Seo, All the Flowers in Paris by Sarah Jio, O Pioneers! by Willa Cather and The Little Bookshop on the Seine by Rebecca Raisin.
I loved O Pioneers! and hope to read more by Willa Cather. I’m still in the middle of a couple of books but I’ll tell you about those in another post.
Very happy to have participated in the Paris in July event. I’m still planning to participate in Spanish Lit Month and did you know that WIT Month (Women in Translation) is coming up? I’m really excited about that.
I need to go through some of my shelves and back issues of World Literature Today to select some reads.
As far as TV shows are concerned we watched The Pale Horse. Have you guys watched that? I have not read the Agatha Christie book it’s based on but from some reviews I’ve read seems like it’s quite different from the book. I liked the first episode a lot but was disappointed a bit with the second part. We also watched The Valhalla Murders and I really enjoyed that one. The mystery wasn’t that unique or complex but I really liked the two main characters. I hope there will be a second season.
So that’s the latest around here. My husband and I are still lucky to be working from home and we try to limit our outings. I’m ready for Fall to get here so we can go out for walks when it’s not 100+ degrees outside. Wishing you a great month ahead. Let me know if you read some good books this month and if you had a favorite.
