Les gens heureux lisent et boivent du café

Hello les amis! Je suis très très mais très contente de reprendre le plaisir de bouquiner 📚 Je viens de finir le deuxième roman de Agnès Martin-Lugand et j’en profite pour faire un petite revue des deux romans.

Avant de donner mon avis par rapport au premier roman “Les gens heureux lisent et boivent du café”, je tiens à préciser que j’étais attiré par le titre mais il ne s’agit pas des gens heureux qui lisent et boivent du café. C’est plutôt l’histoire d’une femme qui a perdu son mari et sa petite fille dans un accident et qui essaie de se remettre. Une histoire de deuil pleine d’amour, de tristesse mais aussi d’espoir. Si on échappe à la vie, elle finira par nous rattraper un jour. J’étais émue en lisant certains passages, la vie peut-être injuste, je me suis laissée porter par l’histoire de Diane…

J’ai adoré le premier roman mais il m’a laissé à ma fin. “La vie est simple ne t’inquiète pas” était la cerise sur le gâteau. C’était un plaisir de retrouver les personnages des Gens. On identifie également les étapes de deuil tout au long du roman, on accompagne Diane dans sa reconstruction, elle grandit, respire et prend sa vie en main.  Il y a peut être des répétitions dans les deux tomes, il faut éviter de lire cette suite juste après les Gens. De ma part, j’ai lit le premier en automne et j’ai finis le deuxième il y a quelques jours.

C’est une lecture légère parfaite pour se détendre en vacances, ou en fin de journée pour se vider la tête et se transporter en Irlande ou Paris. ( enfin j’y suis déjà)

Merci de m’avoir lu.

Readthon – #ORCReadthon4

Hello !

I participated to the 4th Readathon organized by the Group Our Reading Club. The Readathon has started on the 31st of JULY and ended on the 9th on AUGUST.

The challenges of this year are :

  • Read a book by an author from a country that you want to visit 
  • Read a non fiction book
  • Listen to an audio book
  • Read a book by a Tunisian author
  • Read a book about mental illness
  • Read a book that was originally written in a different language
  • Read a book in Arabic

I wanted to share this post yesterday but I didn’t… Anyways, I planned to read 4 books for the#ORCreadathon4  but I’m suffering from reading slumps since December 2016 😭 OMG! I tried to read many books but I haven’t managed to finish one of them. It’s sad, so sad… when I saw the post of the readathon I remembered I’ve enjoyed the 3rd edition last year, so this could be my last chance to snap out this slump. And guess what, I did it! I listened to an audio book and I’ve read an other one 😄 Happy me!
Here is my TBR :

  • Mathilda by Roald Dahl
  • Invisible Kid by Atef Attia
  • Sex and the city
  • The magic of leadership

I managed to finish the first and the second book and I like both of them. (4/5 on goodreads)
So, I accomplished 4 challenges out of 7 :
* Read a book by an author from a country that you want to visit ( Mathilda / England)
* Listen to an audio book (Mathilda)
* Read a book by a Tunisian author ( Invisible Kid )
*Read a book about mental illness (Invisible Kid)
I wish I’ve read Mathilda when I was a child, I’m not sure but I think I ve already seen the movie. Nevertheless, I enjoyed listening to the storyteller. The little Mathilda is a genius who loves reading books although her parents are silly, they do not take care of her and try to stop her reading books! This girl managed to deal with bad people at the age of 4 and try to do her best to live with them without judging their behavior .I think I already love Dahl novels (I’ve enjoyed reading Charlie and the chocolate factory as well)
The second book, the first paper book I finished this year, (yeah !) Invisible Kid. Such a delightful book! I loved Atef Attia’s style. I’ve seen Essour though the scenes from the beginning to the end. I tried to imagine the background even if Atef don’t tell us where this novel takes place exactly. However, I didn’t like the end 😏 may be an invisible kid 2 to finish the story and tell us how Essour could deal with his new life ? Otherwise, this book is a good creative thriller.
I’m really happy to participate in the #ORCreadathon4. I loved the reviews and added some books to my TBR. See you next year dudes 😄

Update
I’m really so glad that Attef Attia left a comment on my Instagram post.
