The art of drinking champagne

The books is what the title says: two women bonding over champagne and living a exhilarating life. And, as always with books by Amelie Nothomb, we as readers are left asking ourselves what is true, what is pure exaggeration and what is fiction. With Nothomb one never knows. In it's depth it's a story about a female friendship, including two very special women doing whatever society doesn't want them to do.

Cuilin Your description reminds me of the 90‘s tv show “Absolutely Fabulous” 2w
Jari-chan @Cuilin I wish I knew the show 😅 2w
Cuilin @Jari-chan it‘s a BBC show. Incredibly funny with Joanna Lumley, and Jennifer Saunders. 2w
Jari-chan @Cuilin Oh, sounds intriguing! 🤩 2w

Even though there were some bad news this week, there was still a lot of joy as well.

1) Nemo, of course. So much love 💖
2) Received two lovely food packages from two lovely people
3) Got two awesome books from @VaniBarelyReads ❤ (she will show up here always, because she's my #1 joy)
4) Free kiwi when I needed something healthy
5) Awesome vegan empanada at the local food festival 🎉

UwannaPublishme Your empanada looks so good. My favorite are the unhealthy cherry empanadas with powdered sugar. 😋 1mo

Not a tough choice for April! The decision between March and April was a little tougher… and I think I‘ll leave the next decision until this one is a little less fresh. #readingbracket2024

The author referred to this as steampunk WWI. And there's something brilliant about it. There's the end of the Victorian era bumped up against the 20th century. People are into seances. There's trench warfare and no mans land and shell shock. It's all very surreal and the author ran with it.

I'm totally in love with this book. Steampunk WWI is how the author referred to it. We're currently waiting for an orange line T train.

TheBookHippie Well, I loved her trilogy so I best get this on the TBR. 2mo
