Henry, Himself: A Novel by Stewart O'Nan
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
I've been waiting for these two books at the library for weeks. One of them I loved. One of them was disappointing. Can you guess which was which? Have you read either? What did you think?
I finished 30 books in 30 days during June. #bookaday #20booksofsummer

Paris in July 2019 begins on July 1st at Thyme for Tea. Paris in July is a French themed blogging experience running from the 1st – 31st July this year.
The aim of the month is to celebrate our French experiences through actual visits, or through reading, watching, listening, observing, cooking and eating all things French!
There will be no rules or targets in terms of how much you need to do or complete in order to be a part of this experience – just blog about anything French and you can join in! Some ideas might include;
- reading a French themed book – fiction or non-fiction,
- watching a French movie,
- listening to French music,
- cooking French food,
- experiencing French, art, architecture and travel
If you are interested in being a part of this experience, link up here.
I'm taking a writing class this summer at Imprint in Houston. It's called Flash Nonfiction. I've only read four pieces of flash nonfiction, and so far I'm feeling meh. What am I missing? Am I going to be able to write in a genre I don't like? Maybe I'll just ignore the parameters and write what I want.
After three months of prep and repair and painting, we are finished. We have a painted house. I feel quite happy and proud.
