Hi, Catherine. Dropping a star.
2. The Paris Wife
by Paula McLain
I prefer to read about Hemingway than read Hemingway.
by Lauren Elkin
Now I want to go back to Paris. That being said, it's not as much about what the title promises as it should be.
I was not that impressed with the first installment of that series, but I really should try a later one. I still like the "setup" for it.
thornton37814: It was, though honestly despite the many benefits of living in Denmark I'd probably get annoyed at the uniformity and the 'this is how it's done' attitude. I would never tire of the pastries, though!
13. Kensington Gardens by Rodrigo Fresan
I read Mycroft Holmes
last year, I think. I was a decent enough book. It's probably worth me checking out this new GN of his.
Mycroft always appealed to me, can't be bothered to do legwork, and likes silent clubs.
18. Mary Russell's War
Fills in some gaps, like her pre-Holmes life and the wedding...
23. Diary of a Bookseller
by Shaun Bythell
After reading this, I wanted to own my own bookshop, even with all the exasperating customers. I don't think my back could take the schlepping, though.
