I've read more in July so far than in June at the same time. July is going to be mostly books in French. Mostly mysteries.

I'm watching Still Star-Crossed and it's good. Not great but good. Too bad it was cancelled. I did order the book.

It's 4 weeks until my summer break. I am eager to be on it. I don't have anything planned but rest. A lot of rest.

What I read

Debout les morts. It was a good, somewhat quirky mystery. I did not see the twist at the end. An early Vargas (mid 1990) that is worth reading.

Alexandra Marinina. Le cauchemar. First mystery in the series of Russian novels written by a retired police officer. Set in the mid 1990s right after the fall of the USSR. Well plotted, a bit convoluted but quite enjoyable. 

What I'm reading

A 1930s Simenon's. La Guinguette a deux sous.

What I got recently 

Sleeping Giants. Sylvain Neuvel.

Still Star-Crossed. Melinda Taub.
