Some Bookish Ramblings

So I am currently reading this:

The Meaning of Night: A Confession
But I'm not really feeling it.  Which I don't understand, because I like the story, and I like the setting, and I like the writing.  There's just something bothersome about it.  I'm sure I'll have it pinpointed by the time I finish the book..

So last night I randomly picked up this:

13, rue Thérèse: A Novel
I've been wanting to read it since I first heard about it last year, and I bought it the day it came out a few months ago.  But I wanted to wait to read  it until I knew I'd have the time to really sit down and focus on the book, because I knew I'd love it.  I mean, come on.  France.  French letters (in French in the book that I can actually read without the translations that follow!).  Yeah, it's awesome.  Oh and did I mention the WWI romance?  I'm guessing it ends tragically.  LOVE IT.  So yeah.  I love it.  I read half the book in one sitting last night and would have continued and probably finished it if Twin hadn't come up to my room (we are sharing my room for now until her room gets repainted.  It better be finished soon!).

And in other bookish news, look what's coming out later this month:

The Girl in the Blue Beret: A Novel
I was looking through my mom's Good Housekeeping magazine and this was listed under their summer reads section as the best "book to curl up with".  It comes out June 28th and I need it.  Like now.  For more info, go to the author's website.

So that's that.  Hope you are all having a great Wednesday.  I always have great Wednesdays, because I'm always off on Wednesday!
