  • [French ARC] Le promeneur sur le cap (Livre I) ♡ Mike Martin
    Je trouve toujours complexe de critiquer un polar sans en dévoiler les secrets puisqu’il semblerait que chaque détail comporte son lot de significations. J’ai particulièrement apprécié ici le jeu des intrigues puisque si l’intrigue principale concerne en effet le meurtre que Windflower s’évertue à résoudre, des sous-intrigues sont également dignes d’intérêt. Par exemple, les guerres internes des officiers de police (notamment relatives au respect de la hiérarchie) ou les ragots du village – ainsi que la critique sociale faite des deux – permettent de mieux cerner le contexte de l’intrigue principale et de la rendre par conséquent plus vraisemblable…
  • Joya Books – the book box designed for you & a fascinating double-concept
    Good evening my dear online friends. First, I hope you are all doing well, I deeply do. I have been absent lately due to working 70h/week and preparing my admission into a PhD, things I will willingly discuss here with you all as soon as I get a normal –for me – life rhythm again. For now, I will leave you to all of your questions, which I would love to apologize for as you know that I consider you all as my online friends and think I owe you transparency. Nonetheless, I know you will all understand and we will soon get to communicate regularly again.
  • June-October Wrap Up: all of the 16 reviews I did not write before & on the importance of slowing down.
    As you might have seen (or maybe not as I still publish posts regularly), life has been little bit hectic lately. To sum it all up, after my break-up last Spring, I changed apartments, jobs, started a business and then, a new school year again. Right now, I am working on finishing my master’s thesis and a secret school project (I will share it all with you when the time comes, do not worry dear friend!) early in order to focus on my next steps (which I keep secret as well, but will also share with you rater soon I hope).

Our approach to simple & productive living

Topics we cover


We focus on health and learn how not the get exhausted. We learn that life is a marathon, not a sprint.

We get things DONE. Living slowly does not mean being slow. Thus, we cover methods you can use to be both productive and stress-free.

We read lots of books, because it is what I study in grad school, what I am passionate about and the core of my job as a librarian.

Because a Natural Over-Achiever Needs to Rest, not to Achieve.

the “hustle culture” is trendy, but balance is good.
