Found this in a cute café/library on the way today, very funny texts and illustrations.
Through the window there is a very foggy sea view.

Aimeesue This makes me think that I might really enjoy a book about zombie ladybugs, if someone ever writes one. 😂😂😂 3w
catsuit_mango @Aimeesue it sounds fun :) 3w

this one had been in my TBR for ages, even taken out of the list, thinking I would get to it another time. But we watched the Netflix series recently and now I want to know if book Ripley is more like the Damon movie, the NFseries or the American Friend movie...anyway hoping to read most of it on a 2h flight.

Getting out that book I have since 1999... I can speak german, but I know my grammar is weak, and practising with Duolingo is not enough, I really need to learn the gender and cases, to speak correctly!

Dilara Good luck with your German studies!
We have the English/French version of that book at home 😁 It's interesting to see which pictures still stand and which would be puzzling to a child today
2mo
catsuit_mango @Dilara yes, and also in the german version there are some words that are not the ones used in everyday life 2mo

Discovered another of the librairies in my town yesterday, went for an exhibition and came back with 2 books. I can not remember who told me about this author but she is french and writing thrillers, so i had to try for myself. So good so far

That one was written by a friend of my dad... not sure yet about the story or the style but it is taking place in a city I like, by the sea :)

Book break from a touristy day in porto. We are more interested in our books than the port wine.

L'Eclat D'Obus | Leblanc Maurice Leblanc
Mehso-so

OK, so it is counted as an Arsène Lupin book but he only appears for half a page in a discussion... As for the rest of the book, it's more a war/revenge/mystery story than what I was expecting, and a lot of WWI stuff so Germans are all bad and French all good... Too propagand-ish for me.

Went to a steampunk conférence in one of the town's librairies tonight. It was fun, a little wrong at times and not enough diverse examples to my taste but we got to see some very cool books and engravings. I ended up borrowing the tagged book...

My last read was a little too heavy, so back to Lupin i go :)
Cuter book cover than the one on my epub. I wonder if they redid new editions with the netflix visuals ?

nanuska_153 How are the Lupin books? Used to love the cartoons when I was a kid 😅but didn't really enjoy the series that came out a couple of years ago 5mo
catsuit_mango @nanuska_153 i like the books, they are of course dated and some of the plots have been seen a lot since but they are well written and Lupin is a fun character. I never saw the cartoons, but my mom was a fan of the original series and I liked the new ones even if the plots are even more unrealistic than the original books :) 5mo
nanuska_153 @catsuit_mango he was very funny in the cartoons (and a bit of a pervert 😅) so I missed him being funny in the series. Might give one of the books a try, does it matter which one I start with? And if not, which one would you recommend? 5mo
catsuit_mango @nanuska_153 not much of a pervert in the books. There is a bit of an arc in the series and recurring characters, but not enough that you have to start from the first book. I have not read enough of them to have a favourite. You might like Lupin against Herlock Sholmes just for the parody of Holmes :) 5mo
