I'm 50 pages away from the end of Les Trois Mousquetaires (The Three Musketeers) and it's wonderful!! The writing is beautiful and amusing. But I've been reading other books in between....

I read Robin Sloan's Sourdough, recommended to me by demure and a truly delightful read. It was a quick read and a quirky story and I loved every word.

I also recently read Code Name Verity, a YA novel about two young female WWII spies/pilots. I picked it up because it's supposedly based in the city in France where I just spent the semester! If you're looking for a page-turning tear-jerking YA quasi-historical read, it's good!
