Had my eyes on The Gracekeepers for a while now, so couldn’t resist when I found it on the Scottish section.

Finally got to see Dorothy Dunnett’s plaque in front of the Writers’ Museum. Actually, the whole trip make me want to read her, but I’m keeping my last Niccolo for a cozy winter’s night.

Thing have been quite over here, but normal service will resume shortly. Between holidays in Morocco and a work assignment in Senegal, both with somewhat unreliable internet connections, blogging was neglected, but much reading was done!

I’ve finished Retribution Falls by Chris Woodding (loved the Firefly vibe, but the tell-not-show style, among other things, was a let down), and The Brontës Went to Woolworths by Rachel Fergoson, re-read Tracy Chevalier’s The Lady and the Unicorn after a weekend in Paris where I saw the Cluny tapestries live for the first time (wow!) and started Sayers’ Busman’s Holidays. Also listened to Mandel’s Station Eleven (well deserved hype) and my first Flannery O’Connor, Everything That Rises Must Converge (sooo good, but not the lightest of reads).

Looking forward to digging into my Feedly and know what y’all were up to!

Courtyard of our riad in Marrakesh. I wish the photo could carry the smell of orange blossoms…
