OCTOBER 2020 READS: 5 books

On the photo, the books that accompanied me during a month when we were not yet locked in our apartments in France for the 2nd time in 2020, when we were officially allowed to go for walks for longer than an hour, longer than 1km away from home & more than just once per day. Crazy how 2020 has created a longing for the most simple things like breathing air without a piece of tissue blocking your nose & mouth, having a brunch sitting down at a café or being able to get up & leave to whichever place on this globe.

Speaking of books: I was extremely excited to have gotten to know the writing of the Danish author Tove Ditlevsen (through her memoir, The Copenhagen Trilogy, made up of 3 different books), learned a TON about aging in “Lifespan” thanks to the “Grow Your Mindset Paris Book Club” & got the confirmation that I’m simply not a fan of Irish drug-addict/alcoholic stories by Kevin Barry, thanks to the “Paris Anglophone Book Club” 🙈

Here the list of all the books read in the order of the ratings that I have given them, from the best to the worst (the complete reviews are linked within the titles of the books):

5/5 ★⁣⁣⁣
• “Childhood” – Tove Ditlevsen
• “Dependency” – Tove Ditlevsen
⁣⁣⁣
3/5 ★ ⁣⁣⁣
