Reads and Reviews

I’ve been in and out of a reading slump lately. I have 3 very well-written books that I’m reading right now, but I just haven’t been in the mental state to want to read. But alas, the tide is turning and now I’m rushing through these books, reading them at any free moment I have. So there should be some new reviews coming soon.


Picnic in Provence: A Memoir with Recipes Picnic in Provence: A Memoir with Recipes by Elizabeth Bard.

This is the sequel to Lunch in Paris which I absolutely adored. Its one of my favorite French memoirs. The sequel finds us in a small Provencal town of Céreste with Elizabeth, Gwendal and their newest addition to the family, baby Alexandre.

I’ll probably finish these next 3 books in the order they appear in this list. I’m reading The Storied Life of AJ Fikry for a bookclub meeting in the middle of May. I’ve given up on the BBC series Wolf Hall, so I’m not in as much of a rush to complete Bring Up the Bodies. Trigger Warning I started months ago and it keeps getting pushed to the side because…well, reasons.

1. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry  2.Bring Up the Bodies (Thomas Cromwell, #2)  3.Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances
