The Sunday Salon: New Year New Energy

OK, I know, December was a perfect disaster on this blog, especially in the challenges. But let's forget the last year and look forward to this year.

I started to read Skylark Farm by Antonia Arslan this Sunday. She is an Italian writer and academic of Armenian origin and the story is about the Armenian genocide in 1915. The topic of the novel is very serious basicly, but after 40 pages the style of the narration looks very feminin. It's more about the relationships within a family than about the external political factors. So, its sometimes a bit boring, but I hope it will be more interesting soon.

Also currently reading
My Autobiography by Charles Chaplin
The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli
