I hope everyone had a great reading weekend, I had a nice weekend but didn’t get that much reading done. I finished reading The Paris Winter by Imogen Robertson and made a little progress on An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena.
I finished two non-fiction audio books last week, The Confidence Code by Katty Kay and Clairshipman and The $100 Startup by Chris Gillebeau. I recommend The Confidence Code if you are struggling with confidence or are unsure of yourself. And if you are interested in being in entrepreneur you should read The $100 Startup. I want to read it again but this time I will read it.
I finished reading one physical book, The Paris Winter by Imogen Robertson. I enjoyed this atmospheric read set during the Belle Epoque period of Paris. It is a slower paced novel but wasn’t boring. I liked reading about the unlikely friendship between Maud, Tanya and Yvette.
I started listening to An Unwanted Guest on audiobook but couldn’t keep the characters straight and was listening to it at work so things didn’t quite sink in, so, I switched to reading it on Saturday. I am around 100 pages into it so far and I like it more than her other two books. I do have some issues with it but will get into detail about that when I review it. I think I know who the murder is but I will have to keep on reading to find out if I am right.
