September is here ! As The Cranberries used to sing : all the kids are going back to school, the summer’s over, it’s the golden rule !
I chose some unusual classics for the window display. Maybe not the one you’ve read for school or the one you already know 🙃
And don’t forget that if you need any book for this year, I’m your (wo)man, I can order and have them in one week 📚
See you soon 👋🏼

The bookstore closes its doors tonight for 2 weeks. It’s time for your favorite bookseller (aka me 😎) to take some rest, have some sleep and read some (more) books ! I’ll be more than ready to open again, on Tuesday, 24. I’ve got a thousand ideas for this new year that will begin.
In the meantime, I won’t be available on the phone but I will of course answer to your e-mails and social media messages if you want to ask me anything or order a book for the reopening ! (You’ll have to place your order on the 18th at last if you want your book for the reopening 🙃)
Thank you all for coming today to the shop, I was so glad to see you and talk about books, as usual ! See you very soon, enjoy Lyon if you’re staying here, enjoy leaving Lyon if you do and enjoy some damn fine books !!!
And yes, it’s my TBR pile for the summer 🤦🏻‍♀️

Last arrival before holidays ! Only good books here !
Small Favors, by Erin A. Craig, a YA fantasy novel : Ellerie lives isolated in Amity Falls, surrounded by a forest. There are monstrous creatures in the woods, keeping her family and their neighbors from venturing too far. When some of them are going on a trip to fetch supplies, they never come back and an unease settles over the town…
12 Bytes, by Jeanette Winterson : a collection of 12 essays on the implications of artificial intelligence for the way we live and love.
Last Chance Books, by Kelsey Rodkey : a cute romance with huge You’ve Got Mail vibe ! Madeline Moore wants to save the familial bookshop but a chain bookstore opens just across the street…
Cecily, by Annie Garrhwaite : an historical fiction about the first days of the Wars of the Roses, centered on Cecily, a medieval high-born woman, politically engaged and married to a possible successor to Henry VI…
A Narrow Door, by Joanne Harris : a psychological thriller set in St Owald’s School, where for the first time a headmistress is in power and the gates are opening to girls. But Rebecca, the new headmistress is only here for revenge…
🤯 what IS this arrival ? How am I supposed to make a choice, I want to read them all. But I think I’ll first go for 12 bytes and A Narrow Door !
And you, which one would you like to take with you on holiday ?

So many new and interesting books this week !
Treasury of Folklore, Sirens, Selkies and Ghost Ships, by Dee Dee Chainey : I loved her other book (A Treasury of British Folklore : Maypoles, Mandrakes and Mistletoe) that I bought when on holiday in Scotland. I loved everything Folklore-ish, and I LOVE mermaid stories, so I'll take this one with me on holiday this year, for sure !
Nightbitch, by Rachel Yoder : now this one seems completely insane, I want to read it so much ! A stay-at-home mother is struggling with her newborn son and soon feels like she's turning into a wolf...
Other People's Clothes by Calla Henkel : a thriller set in Berlin, in 2009, where 2 art students rent an apartment from eccentric crime writer Beatrice Becks but soon, inexplicable things start happening in the apartment...
She Who Became the Sun, by Shelley Parker-Chan : a fantasy novel set in China, in 1345. Two siblings are told their futures by a seer. The boy will have greatness when the girl will die early. But when they're attacked, it's the boy who dies, and his sister, Zhu, will claim her brother's great destiny as her own.
The Therapist, by Helene Flood : another thriller ! Sara, a therapist, gets a voicemail from her husband telling her he's made it to the holiday cabin. But when his friend tells her that he was never there, and she finds out that she doesn't have his voicemail anymore, the police takes an interest in her story...
The Library of the Dead, by T. L. Huchu : another fantasy novel ! Ropa is a ghostalker and when one of them tells her that someone is bewitching children, she has to investigate into underground Edinburgh !
Honestly, they ALL seems so so great, this is too hard to choose. Which one would you like to read first ?

Who is Maud Dixon? blew my mind ! A terrific thriller, very well written. I was suspecting some stuff but definitely not everything.
First thing first : please if you consider reading/bying this book, don’t read the back cover. It gives away so much of the plot !
So, the plot : Florence is an aspiring writer, working in a publishing house where she’s bored. Her mother wants her to have more in life, and so does she. When she has a wonderful job opportunity to be the assistant of a fantastic writer, she doesn’t hesitate one minute and go for it. And she definitely doesn’t know where it’ll lead her !
So this book happens to be set into the writing/publishing world, which is really great. Florence is (at least for me) borderline sociopath and it was a very good and insane read ! Perfect if you’re into thriller in the summer 🔪🌞
