First read of this Louise Penny. I read it in French (would have prefer to read it in English) but it was a great book. Not the kind I read often but I really enjoyed the intrigue.

Loved that French book. As always Musso keeps me on my toe, good suspense with a little love story as usual. Good read for the beach.

The Illegal | Lawrence Hill

August 2019 in OC:
Just loved that book from the start to the end. Read it in no time and realized at the end of it that the author is from my country so I just want to read his other books. Not so far I sure from some other country's reality and makes me want to know more about the subject and what I can do to help... If I can do something.

July 2019 at the beach in OC, MD: Great book to read at the ocean 😄. I was first disappointed when I realized the whole book was around one single action that in reality does not interest me at all but then I concentrated on the main character instead of “the action“ and saw how there was deeper stuff to look at. A book about resilience to me.

July 19 at the beach: I read that book a very long long time ago and could not remember it and wanted to... so I read it again. I think I am going to keep more from it now, beautiful things to keep in mind all life long.

Holes | Louis Sachar

My daughter had to read that book at school this year (grade 6) and I was curious about it. I read it very fast at the beach, it's good and I can understand how kids her age would love it.

I book I read in a mini book club during a University class. It's one for the whole family. I read it to my daughter (she was 7 at the time) and she loved it. Lots of emotions in that book.

I read that book by curiosity as I loved that group when I was a young teenager. These guys were pretty disgusting but the book is well written.

I first read that book with my grade 5 and 6 students. It was just SO great to see them gravitate with me around all the emotions that comes with the book. They were asking me non stop to continu reading it for them. I loved it as much as they did.

Committed: A Love Story | Elizabeth Gilbert

I preferred Eat Pray Love but I enjoyed this book as well. Made me realize a lot about mariage that I had not though about. A book to read a little at a time.

Loved every minute of it. Makes you feel like you want to move to Kenya and gives you some guts to follow through with what you really believe in life.

Le Vide | Patrick Sencal

Too though for me a lots of time in the book, too dark, too much weird sexual stuff and too much “québécois“ speaking. Keeps you on your toes though and wanted to see where it was going so I read it until the end. Won't read from this author again.
