My reading list for the month.
The Forgotten Bookshop in Paris by Daisy Wood.
I received a copy of The Forgotten Bookshop in Paris by Daisy Wood from NetGalley. The book is a historical fiction. It is set in Paris during the Nazi occupation and also, in the present time. Jacques owns a quiet bookshop in Paris but as the Nazi invasion begins, he is left as a bystander and his wife forced into hiding. In modern-day, Juliette comes to Paris for a getaway with her husband. Feeling adventurous, she is drawn to an abandoned bookshop up for sale. Slowly, she unravels the secrets of the bookshop.
Insatiable by Darcy Burke.
I have been waiting for the 8th addition of the Phoenix Club Series and thanks to NetGalley I got a copy of it. Insatiable by Darcy Burke is the story of Lord Lucien Westbrook and Miss Kathleen Shaughnessy. Both these characters have been introduced in the series before so it is interesting to see where their characters end up. Kathleen Shaughnessy is Lucien’s sister Cassandra’s sister-in-law and his friend’s younger sister. When she asks him for help to conduct an experiment, he finds it difficult to refuse, and sparks fly.
Misery by Anton Chekhov.
Misery is a short story written by Anton Chekhov. I have read a couple of stories written by Chekhov now, and even if they are short in length, the themes are dark and heavy. The protagonist of the story is Iona Potapov, a sled driver. He has recently lost his son and is trying to find someone to talk to and share his grief and emotions. But, he can’t seem to find anyone who will listen to him.
