April TBR

Another month, another TBR...

This month I'm setting myself a target of 11 books, as I've got some longer reads on here: two nonfictions, and reading the last four books in the delightfully meaty, complex, twisting House of Niccolò series. I'm also currently working through Hilary Mantel's The Mirror and the Light, which clocks in at close to 900 pages. I've also got lots on with work and several projects around the house I want to clear, so - going to take some of these books slow, and not beat myself up if these carry over into May's TBR.

The Unicorn Hunt, by Dorothy Dunnett

To Lie With Lions, by Dorothy Dunnett

Caprice and Rondo, by Dorothy Dunnett

Gemini, by Dorothy Dunnett

The Disorderly Knights, by Dorothy Dunnett

The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, by Grady Hendrix

Il est de retour, by Timur Vermes (tarns. Pierre Deshusses)

Strange Antics: A History of Seduction, by Clement Knox

Au service secret de Marie-Antoinette: La Mariée était en Rose Berthin, by Frédéric Lenormand

The Splendid and the Vile, by Erik Larson

Tender is the Flesh, by Agustina Bazterrica (trans. Sarah Moses)

As always - let me know if you've read any of these books, or if they strike your fancy, or if you just want to chat as all our minds slowly unravel in lockdown.

Happy reading (and stay the fuck at home),

Amélie xx

I’m Amélie, I love books and reading, and I also love talking about them.

I’m incredibly lucky to be bilingual, so I read books in both French and English, and will talk about both of those on here – although I will do more in English, since I know that’s probably what the majority of the people who ever find this blog will be interested in!

I also like history, traveling, Shakespeare, coffee, cheese, musicals, Italian Baroque art, the ballet, Mock the Week and Have I Got News For You, flowers, makeup, high heels, and baking. Yes, I’m a walking cliché. I am aware.

Please do tweet at me with any suggestions/book recommendations/thoughts.

In case you’re curious – yes, Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book of all time.
