It is no secret that I have struggled to make it through a book this past year. The last book I was reading in 2020 was “The Woman in the Window” my plane ticket still serves as a placeholder when time stopped and I never finished the book. Granted, the woman struggles with agoraphobia (the fear to leave her house) as we all entered a lockdown, I just felt it wasn’t the best book for my increased anxiety.
I have picked up a few books and put them down. I have never been one to surrender to not finishing a book. The latest book I couldn’t get into was “Mistress at The Ritz” I tried multiple times and others wrote in saying they could relate as well to my feelings on the book.
I am currently reading, “The Paris Library” it is a new release and so far it has grabbed my attention. I just started it but I am 50 pages in and I am invested in the characters, unlike previous books in the last year.
I am finding times to read before bed and over my morning coffee during breakfast. It feels good to finally be in the swing of reading again. I promise to keep you posted on how my reading progresses and if I am able to finish.
For other books that are in my queue to read next, “The Paris Seamstress” and “The Book of Lost Names”. I have always been interested in WWII France books. Two of my favorites if you haven’t read them are “All the Light We Cannot See” and “The Nightingale”
