After having high hopes last year, then not participating at all, I've been especially looking forward to Paris in July this year. July will be my last month of working full-time from home (we wander back to the office in August) so I'm trying to make the most of the extra time working this way has sometimes given me.But I've also promised myself that I won't overpromise ... one book and one new recipe, at a minimum. Still, the book is underway, and I've also been watching something on Netflix, and they're both very promising. And I think there will be more.
This is a new novel, with alternating chapters set in Paris during WWII and in Montana in the 1980s, and tells the story of a young French woman, Odile, who works at the American Library in Paris, and Lily, a teenager who befriends the mysterious older woman who lives next door.
Shall we call it by its French name, Dix Pour Cent? I am never an early adopter of Netflix series (so I'm still on season 1) but I am getting to be pretty good at binge-watching to catch up. :) And my favorite thing about watching so far is to try to see how much of the French I can understand (not that much, but some).
Thanks again to notre ami Tamara for hosting Paris in July.
